    I have been working at GDF SUEZ


    SUEZ is an international energy company and therefore it provides many opportunities across the globe. I like the company culture at Suez. People who are smart, work hard and do not mind taking additional responsibilities are eventually recognized. People who steps up to the plate when it is needed and take the challenge and get the job done are eventually rewarded. The competetitiveness among employees are mild, which is good. People are not just sitting around and doing nothing and they are not also cutting each other throats to be able to move forward. Thus, harmony is well balanced. It is a company to work for if you plan to stick around and keep producing. It ultimately pays off!!


    Although it is a huge international energy corporation, career opportunities seem to be more regional. In other words, if you want to work in Italy, you really need to push it hard. It will not come to your way through HR. Suez is very well balanced and diversifed in so many nature. Even though this sounds to be an advantage, it is disadvantageous since the company is not aggressive enough. Essentially, it is sometimes difficult to stimulate each employee's intellectual curiosity. And the salary seems to be a bit below market average or at best it is at market average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GDF SUEZ is an international energy giant. Therefore, the mobility across the globe should be more dynamic and encouraged among employees. For instance, if I want to move to Middle-East and work for Suez there, it is not as easy as it sounds. 80% of the company's focus is in Europe. As a result, the company appears to be a European utility with some branches internationally as opposed to a global corporation. It should be more balanced across the globe. I also think that the company needs to be more compatitive in terms of salaries, benefits, etc. to be able to attract more talents.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GDF SUEZ.

    Interview Details

    I applied via LinkedIn. After a telephone screening, and two telephone interviews, I was invited to do 4 individual, 30-minute interviews with the other managers within the department. This process took 2.5 hours.

    The Sr. Recruiter was very professional, and everyone was friendly and candid. It was a positive experience.

    Study their website-- they have a progressive mindset regarding updating their global culture.

    The offices were beautiful, the location is central, the employees looked happy. They have several floors in the building.
    Bring your parking ticket to the interview to get it validated. They have covered parking which is a plus.
