It's a great place to work, but things are changing. There's a pull towards the "new and cool" and a pull towards "old and known" which leads to things like dynamic desks and work environments WITH very limited flexibility in terms of hours, no remote working, and a mandate on being in the office.

    Maybe. It depends on your department. Certain businesses (like downstream retail) are female-friendly. Others (like upstream or IT) are very male-dominated.

Do your diligence - some great opportunities but also some serious cultural challenges (US in particular). The embedded practice of moving managers every 3-4 years creates upward mobility but also tremendous uncertainty - if you start out working for a great leader, odds are you won't keep them for long!

    10 paid / 17 unpaid

    All paid weeks are based solely on having elected income protection insurance for non-occupational disability. Some managers will call you in to work even when you are on unpaid leave. Year end rankings, which impact bonus, were noticeably impacted in years where maternity leave was taken, contrary to company policy.

For nearly 100 years a very male dominated company but it is changing slowly. Your experience will be directly a reflection of your immediate line manager.

I've worked for Shell since 1999 and have seen them dramatically shift from a company with a "good ole boy" or "men's club" mentality to one exhibiting strong core belief in equality, inclusion and diversity. There are still pockets of male dominated roles in upper/senior management, but even that is continue to change. Shell’s take the attraction and retention of women seriously, as well as helping them reach senior management roles. They recently designed the “Women Career Development Program” which is an internal training program that aims to help women take lead in planning a successful career path.
