Former Employee - Station Manager

I worked at Shell full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good company to work for. They look after their employees and have an excellent training program. I recommend them.

Cons

As manager my (against*) would be the time you spend there. Ensuring a smooth operational station can be time consuming but rewarding, also the pay managers get does not equal the work they do.

Advice to Management

Increase Managers pay structure and give them more leeway and freedom running your stations.

Former Contractor - Project Manager

I worked at BG Group for more than 3 years

Pros

Great management Driven people Great support Excellent location Flexible working

Cons

None that I can think of.
