Was a great place to work, until the culture changed once it landed in India
PMO (Former Employee) – bangalore – May 1, 2018
Shell used to be a great place to work when I started, but as and when more and more people joined in as the Bangalore Hub expanded leaps and bound, the culture started diluting and it is now synonymous to a typical service industry day at work.
Work life balance owing to strict Health & Safety policies were at it's best but since the dilution and everyone, importantly the management trying to prove a point, the key factor of working at Shell is being compromised and there is no more that culture of respecting each others' time.
HR Policies and benefits including compensation is probably the best in the industry and other employers find it difficult to match, on the contrary, if you decide to leave Shell, it is a nightmare to find a new job!
Very few teams here function the way Shell actually does, so it's better to test waters before getting into it.
