Suggestions for improvement

  • Having a better communication with there employees. Having more meetings and working out the issues and concerns that each employee has. Giving award months like on performances and feedback from customers being able to praise them from time to time. It feels good to be reminded

What I like about the company

The postive personal experiences I have had during the years I been with the company. Have been with a few co-workers. I had the privilege to know some real positive energetic ambitious hard workers. Who continue to show up and perform there duties. They can keep a smile even when times are rough.

What I dislike about the company

They don't really bother to want to listen when we want to heard. Never communicating enough and only accusing one another when something goes wrong. Having the district manager hiring her 2 sisters as managers. And other sibling as the book keeper. Not to mention her brother too as a employee. Never really giving us a fair chance to move up. Very upsetting I thought it was against the law.
One other thing, not having breaks when we are supposed to. So much more

Teamwork

Very team oriented. In fact, this is a double-edged sword as decisions may be slow as Shell culture is very consensus driven.

Internal Communication

High level communications are visible and transparent. However, departmental level communications can be less upfront depending on the group.

Gender Equality

Extremely high level management is still male dominant.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There is a tendency to retire employees early these days.

Environmental Friendliness

Very safety and environment conscious.

Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance is encouraged on a global level. Most departments honor this, but I found some do not.

Job Security

It is all rankings driven.

Inclusive / Diverse

In the US, it is very diverse.

What I like about the company

Great benefits, safety is a priority, great atmosphere to work, and positive atmosphere for the most part.

What I dislike about the company

Decision making processes are slow. There is a bit of a "koolaid drinking" culture there (cult-like). That culture works for some, but not others.
