I worked with great project teams. I have no complaints, good pay, great benefits, Safety based work atmosphere. I'd like to see Technip hang on to its workforce, but as with all firm, I believe they are panicking over the oil price downturn.
Great Money... No benefits working through a contractor for Technip..
Automatic Welding Technician Supervisor (Current Employee) – Theodore, AL – April 5, 2016
Great money, but the benefits are slim to none working for Talascend (contractor through Technip).The Technip management and people are good to work with and around. It would be a great company to work for if there was a benefit package offered.
Engineerr (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – January 11, 2016
Technip is the best company for which I have worked in my three decades of experience.
Technip treats employees as valuable assets. It is truly a team.
It is unfortunate that the offshore oilfield engineering business is still rapidly contracting. It is not economically feasible to maintain the current engineering capacity. Otherwise, I would never leave.
Excellent salary, schedule, management, overall team.
Management of Projects (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – November 21, 2015
This company promotes people within the company. Technip has a great supply of benefits that is very difficult to match, probably because of the size of the company. Other suppliers are interested to do business with.

Have enjoyed my time at Technip they however seem to have a great deal of difficulty obtaining new work but at the present time with the collapse in oil prices all companies are having the same problem so it makes it difficult to judge. They also tend to send far to much work to the so called HVE centers which makes it very difficult for parents to suggest a future in Engineering to our Children since it is an industry with no future. I find it difficult to see what is going through the minds of the management of most Companies since they are being very short sighted since if you remove many of the careers we all depend on, the profit margins that they seek will no longer be available because they have removed them from the Western World and the present G20 countries therefore their profit margins will not be attainable.
Good and professional place to work.
To much work to the (HIGH VALUE ENGINEERING CENTERS)???
The day don't have work load. I have learn to work in time of company is not having projects and trying to cost reduction, management skills and help to employee in difficult situation. Management is very good and allow to grow the career opportunity. My coworkers are very friendly and work as team player. Filling a position on shutdown projects, as short term job in limited time limit. offer negotiation is enjoyable part of job.
Fantastic benefits, location, and amenities at the Houston offices. The company definitely favors certain employees and fast tracks them through the system. Non engineers will get lost and unable to advance without befriending or being related to upper management. Pay is good and the 9/80 schedule makes work/life balance very flexible.
Scheduler - Work (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 25, 2016
Great place to work if you're interested in a good work/life balance. Every other Friday off helps tremendously as well as the generous PTO for new hires. I can't speak for all of Technip but in my division we are all very close nit and work well with each other and have fun doing what we are here to do. In my 12 years since entering the workforce (After college) and my third oil and gas company, it ranks as my favorite place to have worked so far.
I enjoyed working at Technip for the benefits. Especially their personal health initiatives. I performed as the Tendering Coordinator for the Genesis Division of the company. The work was interesting with strict deadlines that had to be adhered. Unfortunately, there was no real communication from the Home Office in France, until the decision to cut 6,000 jobs. I suppose it is the "nature of the beast" in the oil and gas industry.
Direct hire Sr. Electrical Designer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 11, 2016
During the time I was with Foster Wheeler I enjoyed my working there good people to work with good boss. Before leaving they were going through changes different department head was a bit different. After leaving they merged with another company and went through a lot more changes so now it is a different company from when I first went to work there.
Good location flex hours
Merged with another company and went through mager changes
Senior Document Control Specialist (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 15, 2016
Technip is a good company. It is being hit by the economic downfall of the O&G industry. I enjoyed the 10 years I worked at the company. If the industry picks up, I have been told I could return to the company as an employee. Technip is working on being the Leader in Health, Safety, Environment and Security. They have tools to make this happen. They are highly regarded in the industry and a leader in the field of O&G.
A very steep learning curve is what a fresher would expect. Company hires a lot of interns and sometime retains the good ones. You can expect to grow with the company. Lot of opportunities to go offshore and develop leadership skills. With the job comes a great compensation package, involvement of the employees in various activities, great job culture and facilities like on-site gym, zumba, kickboxing classes etc.
