Oil and gas futures are very grim especially if you are at one of the energy parks. Maybe they’ll add some biodiesel units to some parks maybe some hydrogen units but that’s pretty much the extent of “new” things. Maybe some heater/furnace upgrades to reduce emission.

I think since you’re still early in your career you can get away with an industry jump like that. Also amazon is continuing to grow like crazy so there should be more room to advance and more jobs being created. Shell doesn’t have that aspect anymore.

Amazon doesnt offer pension but I’ve only been with Shell for 6 years so my pension isn’t that much anyways.

The constant reorgs is k–ling me. Been thru ~4 reorgs in 6 years

I would especially if less than 10 years with Shell. Who enjoy reorganization every couple of years?

Does Amazon offer pension? Shell is one of few employers still offering pension.

Keep looking for a job with better pay (even at Amazon if that's where you want to be). You want to grow in both knowledge and money with more responsibility to boost your career growth.

The growth opportunities for Tech role and Nontech role in Amazon are different. Tech people take the initial low pacakage from Amazon and will jump to other FAANG for higher pay after a few years. Tech survivors from Amazon have good reputations in Tech industry.

@bbz the role i got offered is more industrial engineering role and total compensation is probably slightly higher than what I'm making at Shell. With Reshape executing soon theres a lot of uncertainty.

is the PIP culture true or just overblown? most PIP that I've heard of are from SWE or SDE. Even if the rate is 10% get PIPed, isn't that the same as Exxon?

If you are not under immediate threat of layoff from Shell, do not consider a Nontech role from Amazon. Nontech compensation from Amazon is not attractive, considering its PIP culture. I will try to find a tech role, to make that pressure bearable.
