    Pros

    Job stability is very good.

    Cons

    High rate of attrition due to management incompetence, pay freezes, and local rival companies offering much higher salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove some of the no added value time wasting and motivation killing processes. Give merit increases once a year instead of comimg up with creative accounting to reduce our salaries. This company has been a demotivating experience for a once top performer because there is no motivating factors. Slackers get promoted at the same rate as the top performers and guess what, if you are a top performer, you get the extra workload and get to work weekends. In the end you may or may not get a sweet $50 core award to buy a couple $5 screenprinted Areva T-shirts.

    Pros

    It is very difficult to find any benefit from Areva.

    Cons

    Hire and Fire Policy
    Company has no loyalty to Employees
    Management is taking wrong decisions and then firing juniors to save them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should try to accommodate local conditions. They should concentrate on Profit of company rather than own luxury.
    Participation of Middle management should be during decision making.
