    I have been working at TOTAL full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people! Most are from the South and Southwest having that "can do", friendly spirit! Great, competitive benefits too. Excellent career development/management program, with many opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Too many higher management positions occupied by people from Europe. Is there a future for me?

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within as has been the past practice and minimize the number of people from Europe in the management ranks.
