Culture at Shell

7.8 rating for Culture, based on 19 reviews
Please describe your company's culture both in the office and after hours. Let us know about the structure and hierarchy, cooperation and teamwork, and socialising amongst colleagues.
My team and immediate network possess a great social culture which transcends into the office. Generally quite a flat structure in my immediate team which is great.
The company culture is good. We are given the opportunity to talk and ask questions to members of leadership teams, as well as encouraged and supported to collaborate with colleagues.
Mostly positive, relaxed and friendly.
Culture is much better than I have experienced at other large multinational corporations. People definitely feel a part of something larger than their own team. However some aspects of working in a large company creep in.
Great cooperative culture, both during and after hours. Most of the office spaces are designed as open plan to facilitate easy communication and rapport, plus the diffusion of ideas between team members. Most sites have a social club which holds events like after work drinks, golf days, family days and of course an awesome Christmas party. Most people in Shell are also very fitness driven, and there are several running/sporting teams and events going on all around the year.
Matrix-organisation, typically open, honest communication. Strong sense of cooperation and welcoming atmosphere. Organisational structure can lead to complex process/admin/project set-up in terms of communication which takes time to understand and navigate After hours: regular social events to get to know colleagues
Fantastic culture. Open culture where everyone feels comfortable to be themselves. Everyone is friendly and willing to help each other where they can. There is emphasis working as team however also the freedom to work independently. Fun culture with a balance of achieving goals an performance while maintaining a life outside of work
People are friendly.
Work life balance sometimes not great, social interaction with senior colleagues limited, but graduates very social. At times the corporate structure can be confusing
Shell has great diversity in its workforce. I get the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds and it really adds to my working experience.
Matrix organisation and very social
