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.

Boring and tedius

Easy job, met some interesting customers, pay was decent work is not what they make it to be. A lot of standing must be in shape or you'll destroy your back.

Pros

Cool co workers

Cons

Hours of work

Good training program for production technician

Training program is good. However it still up to your trainer to allow you to progress. You'd have to follow your trainers pace. Plant area is generally very old, not very well rejuvenated or ergonomic.

Pros

Transport pick up

Cons

Location.

(1) Productive. (2)Camaraderie among the staff

The use of technology. I got introduced to working remotely for a department that was overseas. The reporting precision was second to none. Learning the mechanics was not easy but I prevailed. My local counterpart was difficult to work with. That taught me coping skills.I would work with Shell again if given the chance. Preferably in another country!

Pros

Generous perks, LUNCH. Supper allowance, decent pay

Cons

Unhealthy favoritism displayed by managers; unwholesome relationships

It feels like limbo, never knowing what's coming next.

I loved the customers and employees but management has no accountability. Management refuses to provide any reassurance for advancement or further compensation.

Pros

Meeting interesting people everyday!

Cons

No job security.

Competitive and Ageism

I was a contractor and never was considered for a permanent post even though I was a hard worker and dedicated. There tends to be a preference for younger cheap labor rather than older experience.

Pros

Pretty office building in downtown

Cons

Revolving door policy for contractors

As A Career Company, Fantastic

I joined Shell when it was a career company and they invested heavily in you and gave you many benefits as incentive to stay. As a result, my experience was very positive. However, for newer employees things are not the same, but they are still very good if you work hard and have a good attitude. Pay can be extremely good depending on what part of the business you join. The majority of my managers were excellent and looked out for their staff. I really liked the Shell culture and staff, but you have to be really good at playing politics and CYA when working with leadership.

Pros

Great people to work with, good management, competitive pay, easy to get time off when proven

Cons

Highly competitive - can be difficult to get recognized/promoted, some over-centralized decision-making, high pressure on industry

Salary is good and decent benefits. Too many reorganization and regular layoff. Too many layers of management. Too much spending on projects. Too much uncertainty with constant job change. Politics are high

Pros

Cons

Job security and politics

Love working at Shell

As with any oil and gas the uncertainty of job security is high. You are given opportunities to move up however the culture can be filled with cliques that can block your advancement. If you fall outside that clique you may have to work harder and prove yourself worthy of advancement. I wouldn't change anything about my time working at Shell. I loved it!

Pros

Time life balance. Pay scale is high.

Cons

Always reorging and the uncertainty of your job
