Good working environment but poor management

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Basically I do account on daily basis. I learned to be meticulous in performing my tasks in order to come out with good work result. Dealing with supplier and customer is quite tough whenever deals with payment and stock. I also perform bookkeeping role in my current company because, previous bookkeeper does not understand the situation in station and did not do account properly. However, I have a very supportive teammate that make me enjoy my work here.

It's not productive place to work

Shell company apply favoritism in everything. If you can butter your boss, there will salary hicks, an attend leaves will be more flexible..sometimes you don't need to work as well. If your Chinese, from the top management to the tl will help you out so you can be next confirm staff.. hard work is noting, further more the senior staff will not help out unless your there favorite person.

Pros

no pros

Cons

Favoritism, colors and nepotism.

Work life balance

In Shell the core values plays an important role whereby we respect others, we have integrity and honesty. Having this mindset will encourage everyone to have a wonderful time at work. Yes it can be stressful at times but its a wonderful company to work with as the employer trusts the employee!!

Working in Shell maximizes your capability, performance is measured but there are still efforts by Shell for work life balance.

Working in Shell maximizes your capability, performance is measured but there are still efforts by Shell for work life balance. I had no chance of reading newspaper during office hours, Shell maximise uses of technological tools for your daily routine work eg. each staff is provided with a desktop computer and most of routine works are done using computers, designed for staff to spend more time on strategies & ideas generating, application tools are mostly uses. Most of all, global staff uses work-from-home technological tools meant to adopt work flexibility and ultimately maximise cost & office savings.

Personal and professional development is in own hands

I have been with the company for 11 years and moved between two organisation. The core Shell culture of prioritising safety, being compliant, respecting colleagues are constant throughout the company. Love the flexible working hours but, as it's a global organisation, be prepared to work outside normal office hours when needed. Many opportunities available

Pros

Good development opportunities, fantastic and respectful work culture

Cons

High pressure/stress due to competitive company culture, leaders slow in decision making, risk-averse organisation

Unproductive working culture. Result Driven management with minimal understanding of customer needs. Pressure but no solution.

Corporate Sales with A lot of political leaders. Big MNC with different types of people with different agenda in particular Channel just to show results to their line manager and didn't understand what really happened in the total business.Giving pressure without proper understanding reality situation. Result Driven managing culture without proper knowledge of how to do things right in understanding the process.

Pros

Mismanagement

The management level is worried about themselves more than their real asset the front liners. They act as bossess not the leader. In 8 years working they never have performance review.

Pros

Experience

Cons

Below expectation for multinational company

Be prepared to change role every few years

Best work-life balance experience ever. Supportive management but always restructuring. If you're not able to find a new role when your "window" is open, you're basically out of a job.

Shell is dynamic in a way your opportunity to grow is limitless, and you can see how people in Shell practices their core values by heart (from frontlines up till the leadership team).

Very competitive, a lot of re-org from time to time

Good place to work.

Shell has a strong company policies with good working environment and people diversity. However, the leadership team always look at the people who can speak rather that a doer in team. This is how they get promoted.

Pros

Benefits, company policy, work culture

Cons

Management team, low salary range
