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

    Pros

    Flexibility in career path and in opportunities to change and create change, but only to a certain level. I have stayed for 28 years so I am obviously happy, but could be happier.

    Cons

    Low pay for American employees. Company is too French not quick enough for Americans to move to the top. We get too frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job in identifying real leaders for management instead of subject matter experts to put in leadership roles
