Great Place to work

Featured review

Shell selected this as a representative review
I had a great time working at Shell and had a wonderful work life balance. I had the opportunity to travel to europe and south america for work and had the opportunity to work from home frequently. I also had every other friday off.

Fun

I love customer service jobs and as long as I'm providing quality service, I am happy because my customers are happy. Having an employer that maintains it's products and supplies makes my job that much easier.

The company culture fosters indecisive and incompetent leadership.

Shell is poorly led from the top executive level down to the average middle manager. It is rife with cronyism because the focus is no longer on providing competitive products, but is instead focused on its public image and risk reduction alone. These goals result in an environment where the bare minimum for compliance is maintained, while improvement and expansion cannot occur because the company requires low headcount and will not tolerate any failure in the interest of innovation. The company is also focused on divestment of all petroleum-based businesses over the long run, so any department that touches asset operations is a dead end for the employees in it. The only criteria for promotion in that situation is being a trusted friend who will never risk bringing negative attention on their superiors. It's all about survival within the corporate ecosystem, not pride in one's work.

Good people

I enjoyed my time at Shell. Most of my colleagues were exceptionally bright and friendly. I was located in the Shell Information & Technology Center for the bulk of my years with Shell. I also worked briefly in their downtown Houston offices. My greatest difficulties were internal stresses hampering my ability to openly and honestly address routine workplace obstacles which I presume neurotypical folks not suffering with CPTSD could easily surmount. All in all, Shell was a great company to work for, and one for whom I would readily work again.

Not a good place to work

The company would be a lot better. If they got rid of the manager that works there. She thinks that she can talk to people and be little people like were children. The owners and the main office allow her to treat people the way that they do

Pros

Easy job loved the customers

Cons

The management

Inflexible hours and immature management

Working for Shell is one of the most stressful jobs you could apply for. Family emergencies are never considered and hours are inflexible. Do not recommend

Management is bad, and also payment

Overall I was satisfied with my chores, and loved being occupied with something always. But the management sucked, which resulted in a toxic environment. Would never go back to this job

Eh it sucked

Was great at first then it became a total mess the good was the first 2 years then became bad the manager is always mad and frustrated because corporate office is lazy and can't do their own work

They think about their work than their workers

They have they're own rules and regulations you must abide with, you pay for any damage and in case of any missing goods an amount will be deducted from your salary.

Pros

No free lunch

Cons

No short break

I formed a second family with my co workers . They were very supportive and helped one another when needed.

My experience was very good. I enjoyed the fact that unlike most convenient stores that even though we were busy all the time, we were always given breaks unlike other places I have worked that just throw you behind the counter and forget about you .

Great place to work!

Worked in accounting in downtown Houston, TX. Great company, great pay, great benefits. Management was always willing to train and be helpful. Work load was perfect for the pay.
