    Pros

    Good people to work with that are very knowledgable. Compensation was fair and commensurate with my experience. Taking vacation was never a problem.

    Cons

    Felt pigeon-holed in my position due to the structure of my office. Didn't get the opportunity to learn new things once I was trained.

    Pros

    As an intern for 2 years I had an excellent experience with Areva. They are very concerned with safety, upper management is very knowledgeable and supportive, and the pay is good.

    Cons

    I did not personally experience this, but many employees are required to work many more than 40 hours closer to deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reallocate workers on a project to help balance the work load.

    Pros

    Diverse engineering products for the commercial nuclear power industry in the US, France, Japan, Finland and China

    Cons

    The company started over pricing engineering assets due to increased overhead. Foreign ownership of US Plants limits this companies growth potential.

    Productivity from upper management as well as project assigned engineers and consrtructors

    I have been working at AREVA

    Pros

    The Nuclear Renaissance is happening! There is a slight slow down on new plants due to the current world Economy but there is plenty of exisiting plant business until things get back on track. AREVA has (7) new builds (EPR Reactor) planned in the US. AREVA is the ONLY manufacturer in the world currently building GEN III+ reactors (Finland, France and China although Westinghouse recently broke gournd in China with their AP1000).

    AREVA is the largest supplier of equipment & services to the commercial nuclear industry in the world. Much bigger than Westinghouse globably and somewhat bigger in the US. People fail to realize this. We are in over 20 states with 5000+ people.

    Cons

    Typical large company issues at AREVA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more $$$ in sales and marketing.
