    Pros

    TotalEnergies is a great place to work and the pay is good. The company invest in employees, there are many opportunities for training including leadership and coaching for managers. Work is challenging and complex which keeps you interested and never bored. Every day is different and you always learn something new. The company is making more efforts to provide opportunity to move around within the different affiliate companies. The tools available for internal job search are very helpful. Your soft skills as well as technical skills are taken into consideration providing more opportunities to move around the company. TotalEnergies has a multi-cultural environment with management stressing respect for all employees. When the Oil and Gas industry was struggling and laying off, Total did not lay off people. Overall this is definitely one of the better companies I have worked for in my 24 year career.

    Cons

    A lot of the upper management positions will be filled by Expats from Europe which only stay 2 to 3 years. While there may not be layoffs there are areas that have been outsourced to save money. Typically the outsourcing of groups does include layoffs or loss of jobs. In the US Total runs lean and continues to reduce budget every year. In the US one person does the work of 5 individuals, while in France this does not tend to be the same. A lot of positions are filled with contractors to reduce cost.
