    I worked at TOTAL full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I felt that my work was valued and my managers listened to my suggestions. There always was someone qualified to answer my questions.

    Cons

    The job was sometimes stressful as you had to always deliver results, but that was motivating. I didn't really feel cons working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep taking care of your employees and be honest in your yearly evaluations. Good communication and great safety standards.

    I have been working at TOTAL

    Pros

    Total est une entreprise confronté a une très forte concurrence internationale et au coeur de nombreux débats de société (en particulier l'environnement). Elle offre la possibilité d'évoluer dans un environnement soumis a de nombreux défis offrant de réels expériences enrichissantes.
    Enfin une politique RH qui offre a ses salariés de se développer professionnellement et personnellement.

    Cons

    Expérience au sein d'une filiale situé sur un marché qui s'ouvre à la concurrence suite a un long monopole de l'un de nos concurrents. Pour s'adapter au mieux, equipes en sous effectifs (mais enrichissante également car il faut trouver des solutions) avec une activité en forte croissance du fait decl'ouverture du marché.
    En conséquence, de nombreuses heures de travail et de stress. Mais le principal probleme a été d'évoluer au sein d'une société commerciale où la reconnaissance du management pour les salariés des fonctions supports est très inégalitaire par rapport aux services commerciaux.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ne pas oublié tous les salariés de l'entreprise.

    Former Contractor - Electrical Supervisor in Any-Martin-Rieux (France)
    Former Contractor - Electrical Supervisor in Any-Martin-Rieux (France)

    I worked at TOTAL as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    TOTAL is the best company in the world wide and quality standard, performance time schedule are very strictly followed by total in all discipline ,also safety is excellent at all time

    Cons

    they will give independent response for each person to work with quality and human safety point of view

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    once we work with total and their best standard ,we would like to continue with total but getting the opportunity is very difficult for next project (because we are worked through agency (for example i was through CEGELEC-Abu Dhabi and worked as a electrical supervisor for total in Yemen for last 8 years, now i would like to work again with total, but their is no job call from total )
    so if their is any job opportunity total has to call back the people even who are worked through agency because they are very familiar with total standard and policy ,so it can help both side to maintain the quality and achievement.,
    so please i am requesting you to give continues opportunity for the agency employees
