It depends on where you land

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Shell is good company but it depends on where you land. If you land in wrong role it is very tough and takes 3-4 years and contacts to get another role. It is heavily matrix based company and relationships with Business and Onshore matters and not really skill set. You will find a line manager who doesn't have skill set in your technology. It is common in Shell.

Pros

Stable

Cons

Heavily matrixed organization, Beauracratic

Best company to work for

I couldn't find any cons. It is the most employee friendly company. Promote diversity. Encourages employees to go beyond their capacity to develop themselves

Good place to work.Company cares for employees wellbeing.

Rule of 4 years assignment in a particular role is not apt.Internal movements are dependent on the feedback from previous manager, this might work against an employee in certain cases...

Fun place to work.

Really nice colleagues and interesting challenges. It is a good place to stay for a while. Little hard to advance but not unlikely. Wonderful people and work culture.

Manager oriented company

Whatever Your manager says that's final, HR or anyone would not bother to check back. It's stressful to keep them happy and some of them take undue advantage of this culture, though upfront company denies this, but it's conspicuous

Pros

Good canteen, free meal pass, free pick and drop for women after 9pm

Cons

Stressful environment, no job security and too much work load

Work is full of fun!

I cherish my time at Shell.I learnt many things not just about work life but also about real life situations. I truly admire the importance Shell gives to safety and how they insist safety in everything. Most admirable words are " If you do not follow shell principles, you choose not to work for Shell".I follow safety rules at home only after my experience at Shell.I still remember and follow the Shell principle of holding the handrails on the stairs or lift.I so want to go to back to Shell again!

Pros

Free lunch vouchers

Cons

Long hours

It is a great place to work

It is a great place to work. Honesty integrity and safety of employee is their main objective. Diversity and inclusion is good aspect. They also help employee with disabilities. They rehire people if they wanted to rejoin. CSR is another good thingFor women's it is a safe place to workStrong policiesGood training. Coaching and mentoring peopleIn most of manufacturing they don't rehire people. But shell they always consider their employee. If the employee rejoins their old employee ID is given to and are considered as equal. Health of employee are considered. Good benefits are provided. They adapt to change. We can move to different department if you are interested to learn it. Flat and open door policyConfidential of issue and people respected

Cool industry to work in, great food on campus

I was an intern at Shell in Bangalore. It is a very good place to work if you are a core engineer. It was a great exposure for me into the oil and gas industry.

Great people, great culture, good salary

Good company to work for; lots of benefits to employees other than just good salary. Of late, because of falling oil prices, the workload has been increasing.
