    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, for a person not afraid to hear rejection and be cutthroat

    Cons

    Employee factory with rapid hire/fire rate

    Advice to Management

    If you actually structured your pay scale to encourage your employees to seek new business they might feel more inclined to do so. Instead it is a meat market for fresh faces to do the bidding for higher ups. Seems to me they think it's going well. So carry on.
