    I have been working at Total Petrochemicals full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Beter than being unemployed, but not by much. There are better companies out there offering better pay, benefits and all-around atmosphere.

    Cons

    Poor management. The atmosphere is not condusive to productivity or inovation. Too many times management positions in the US are filled by epats from Europe. Upward mobility is very, very, stagnant.
