No opinion of CEO

I have been working at TOTAL full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Good pay

- Possibility to travel a lot
- Nice people

Cons

- Bold attitude is only external communication, very risk-aversed environment
- Hierarchy
- Politics
- international in its presence, not in career opportunity (HQ is ruling everything)

    Pros

    A good place to learn. It's complex operation is a great place to increase knowledge and responsibility, quickly. Nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Underpaid. The salary for local is not international standard. For expatriate, the salary is ok. Considering the low living expense.

    Advice to Management

    Apply salary benchmark with international company, as there are a lot of workers with international quality. Otherwise people kept leaving.
