    I have been working at Shell full-time (More than 3 years)


    Good salary
    Great work-life balance
    Great safety culture
    Generally a relaxed environment to work


    Though efforts are made, a singular and consistent strategy spanning across many years seems lacking.
    Management decisions are questionable at times, often nullifying the effect of decisions taken in the past.
    Though sometimes beneficial, re-orgs happen frequently (but not necessarily leading to job cuts).

    Advice to Management

    As is common with large organisations, too much emphasis is put on the visibility of the employee. In the process, packaging one’s self is incentivised more than doing solid work. Even though it may be tough and practically challenging to reward low profile employees doing solid work, it will be in company’s long term benefit to put the extra effort to come with mechanisms to make this possible.
