    Pros

    The company are willing to provide professional training and development. There is generally a good order book and a variety of work on offer.

    Cons

    Work-Life balance at Technip is generally quite poor. There is a strong ‘bums on seats’ mentality when it comes to evaluating staff contribution and productivity. A worker who is in the office for a 12 hour day and delivers little is valued higher than an efficient and productive worker who is in the office for an 8 hour day. There is a high turnover of staff. Middle management are generally poor performers and there is need for a cull at this level of the business.

    Advice to Management

    The company should evaluate workforce performance based on outcomes (rather than presenteeism). Continue to develop and invest in non-oil & gas areas of the business.

    I worked at Technip full-time

    Pros

    Nothing to mention here, if you are going to join this company then make sure you are local resident or start looking for another job the day when you join. If you know how to play and buttering to your manager then this is a perfect place for you. No need to be expert in your job just be expert in buttering and allegation.

    Cons

    1) Totally unprofessional environment, with no help for new employee (Encouraged by deptt and senior management)
    2)Incompetent senior management with unrealistic targets and pressurizing employees to convert without providing any ample time for setting in.
    3)Does not provide any training for new employees : Mentor is always busy and they never help you, but they do reporting for your work.
    4)Losing business, leading to termination and throwing of foreign employees without any valid reason.
    5) Upper management is biased for foreign workers. Manager favours his guy and assigns good and challenging task to them.
    6) Please remove your value tag " Trusting the team" and write "We favour only our favourites".

    Advice to Management

    If these condition persists you have to close the company soon. Do not discriminate.Focus to teach current employees how to work with competent foreign workers.
