    I have been working at TOTAL full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent salary for the area plus the company have a generous pension scheme, a good share scheme and you have the option of either a 9-day fortnight or flexible working.

    Cons

    Penny wise and pound daft. They seem to be on a 3-year cycle of repeating the same management initiatives only re-branded. Offices are absolutely dire and some of the decisions taken by senior management can only be described as bizzare.

    Advice to Management

    Try and do the right thing for the medium to long term. Every decision you all make is very short term which is not surprising given you too, like the middle managers, are only thinking of your own careers
