    Pros

    A great place to start and grow. Good starting salaries and performance based bonuses. Many young professionals keep it competitive; many whom are hungry to move up. Good training programs and opportunities to jump to other areas if you can show initiative. Very flexible in terms of family/work life. If the company is successful, everyone enjoys the spoils.

    Cons

    UK/NA/Paris office differ in culture and direction. Sometimes it seems as though the EDF machine stalls with lack of clear objectives. There are some that have been there since the Lehman era that have hit a wall and really don't bring anything new to the company. Retention for top talent is not great. Bonuses for trading isn't just performance or book based but how the company does overall. Some good performing traders get shafted while others who get by reap in the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard to steer the North American ship with UK and Paris at the helm but try to become more independent. Great business model.

  2. Internship was a great way to understand the challenges and changes in the energy industry.

    Pros

    Scale of the company is large. 4th largest natural gas marketer in the United States. Has the agility of a small company with the balance sheet of a world class utilities provider.

    Cons

    If you are not interested in a career in trading, the training opportunities in other business fields is limited. Great place if you want to trade commodities though.

  3. Great employer, lots of opportunity

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial company which allows staff the opportunity to progress.

    EDF Trading is definitely an employer of choice, many people want the opportunity to work there because of the geographical and market presence.

    Cons

    Sometimes existing staff are promoted without merit, or substandard under performing remain in their roles, without being managed effectively.
