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

    Pros

    Great culture, smart but supportive and collaborative bunch of colleagues. Generally fair treatment of employees. Super transparent and open even in most sensitive topics. Good job security. Very meritocratic. Fantastic pension (bit less so for newcomers). Surprisingly low level of bureaucracy for its size.

    Cons

    For long term employees a slow salary progression compared to job hoppers. Bit mad about Health and safety. Sometimes slow in making decision.

    Cons

    The biggest drawback was the internal squabbles that would go on behind the scenes, that wouldn't be visible to some visiting or is new but it doesn't take long to pickup on the various clicks and whom belong to which...
