    I worked at Shell (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - An international organisation with the possibility to travel all across the world and in unusual locations.
    - Great teamwork with an understanding of flexible working, I had great support while finishing my studies or facing unexpected family commitments.
    - Excellent salary and benefits

    Cons

    - As a large organisation, it is undergoing frequent reorganizations which mean a regular change in roles and colleagues.
    - A slower than expected investment into renewables and more sustainable energy sources, although efforts are being made.

    Advice to Management

    - The succession of reorganizations overlapping across countries and functions undermine the ability for employees to work at their best while worrying if their team will be next.

    I worked at Shell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Opportunities globally
    - People support one another
    - A brand looking to the future and transforming into a clean(er) energy company
    - Office environment (I was based in UK, London)

    Cons

    Some management is clicky and although there are good code of conduct and policies in place they are not followed.

    A boys club mentally still exists - issue with gender pay gap due to lack of women in senior positions. Things are changing, but not quick enought
