      I have been working at TOTAL full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Stability in employment; Runs lean staffing, which is good because typically does not lay off during downturns. Making improvements to catch up with benefits of other majors.

      Cons

      Runs lean staffing which means more work for individuals; Lack of growth opportunity; French Company in the USA, which means it is difficult for others besides French nationals to advance beyond a lower management position; targets 80th percentile in industry salary range

      Pros

      Generally well managed company. Benefits are quite good along with career opportunities if you are interested in international work.

      Cons

      Lots of bureaucracy, very Paris centric view of the world.

      Advice to Management

      Allow more autonomy of the regions to take advantage of opportunities in those regions.

      I have been working at TOTAL full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Friendly environment, very diverse, expatriation possible

      Cons

      Yearly increase and performance bonus are not based on your performance: You can try hard and have a great yearly performance or you can lay back and relax , at the end you would get the same thing , the difference is not really worth the effort!

      Advice to Management

      Reward hard-workers who deliver results!!!!

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at TOTAL full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Great compensation, in line with local industry. It's a huge business, and feels very professional from the top down. Safety is taken seriously. Great coworkers of all types. Union.

      Cons

      Work/home balance leans heavily to the work side. It is expected, and anyone who knows this line of work knows that most of your time will be spent at work. Excessive overtime can hurt morale, but most accept that the pay makes time at your second home bearable.

      Advice to Management

      Our process has become our life, whether we like it or not. That comfy chair is one of the few perks we get.
