    I worked at Technip full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some very bright individuals within engineering department.

    Cons

    Culture of accidental managers that are time served with no leadership or management skills. No safety or quality culture demonstrated from the top. Empire building departments with duplication of effort and subsequent double standards. Senior management unwilling to listen to good advice to improve the business. "Firefighting" when things go wrong is applauded rather than making sure things don't go on "fire"... in the first place. Easier to fix repeating mistakes than avoid them in the first place. Frustration at blatant examples of nepotism and buddy-ism.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate more across departments, stop adopting sound bite management styles without proper leadership skills. Stop Senior Project Managers from encouraging a culture of "we've always done it this way" Stop blocking innovation Start walking the entrepreneurial walk rather than just talking it

    Pros

    Has a strong sense of profiling Safety as its lead priority Strong community Pays well Travel possible Opportunity to transfer

    Cons

    Have double standards of safety where profit dictates the depth of safety commitment. Very good at suppressing any issues which embarrass management. No management backup to review evidence of wrong doing.

    Advice to Management

    Believe and support your work force when things start to go wrong rather than suppressing the facts. Praise dedicated workers and put those who cannot manage a workforce on appropriate management training.

    I worked at Technip full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good portfolio of technologies and clients. World wide reach. Expert in offshore and subsea. A lot of smart people with great knowledge and experience. Some people with great courage to propose new challenges.

    Cons

    The CEO and the board with limited imagination or vision about the future. They decided in 2014 for the energy market to focus only in the oil and gas sector and in particularly in offshore and subsea and selling the renewables' business. Too many offices competing instead of collaborating. The middle to upper level management seems to be unable to steer in a coherent direction. Too much interference from support... departments in the business and especially in the projects. The biggest part of the plan to cope with the oil price slump was to reduce the workforce. There are redundant reports for everything. The bureaucracy is too large.

    Advice to Management

    The company should have keept the investments in renewables and developed a research team to make progress in new energy solutions. The innovation should come from unorthodoxal thinking. The top management should let new people and especially new ideas to grow and to have room to try and make mistakes.
