    Former Employee - 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

    Pros

    International assignment opportunities,

    Although company does it best to provide work-life balance, it may not suit all (if you are not flexible)
    Sometime working under pressure - not suitable for people who can't cope with work pressure
    Not suitable for people who does not take ownership for their work.
    Too many holidays by French local staff - which disrupts project activities sometime

    Big-impact projects, smart people, good interactions even with top-management, finance is not the limiting factor for projects

    Everything moves slowly as it is a big company, decision are very centralized, hard to see the impacts of your work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decentralizing the decision making process for small decisions, give more responsibilities to subsidiaries, keep the good mindset
