    I have been working at AREVA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They think outside the box. They treat you like an adult and I have never been micromanaged. They provide ongoing training opportunities and invest in their employees. I love that they allowed me to work remote for five years to care for my family out of state. There is a life work balance. Benefits are great

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of a con as my experience at work has been nothing but fantastic. If anything, the few that abused the sick leave policy to the point you had to curtail it to 7 days was annoying but not the end of the world. Ok I wish non exempt folks could bank overtime like exempt folks. I'd rather bank 50% or all of my overtime rather than be paid overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to think outside the box and apply those management tactics to employee needs. It encourages long term loyalty and commitment to a job well done

    I have been working at AREVA full-time

    Pros

    - Good people - Profesional environment - Good benefits

    Cons

    -Engineers are overworked and not paid overtime. 8h of overtime a week is consider casual (unpaid). - Very old fashion industry. Engineers are a close minded. - People get trainined on procedurs, guidelines and policies but not on technical skills other than learning a software. - The environment is not very appealing for young people

    Advice to Management

    Engineers working unpaid overtime and meeting customer deadlines in not the ideal concept of a "right sized" company. Either make a case to bring in more people or pay extra hours to those that are really working hard. Efficiency is not about all employees working full steam all the time. Times when the load work load is not very high are good to recover at work even if it may be seen in management as oversized headcount.

    I have been working at AREVA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Competitive salary - Fairly flexible work schedule (choice of 8 hour days or 9/80) - Most of the managers are good with only a few that I would not want to work for

    Cons

    - Training. I feel that the training we receive is completely irrelevant to the work I actually do.

    Advice to Management

    Management talks about mobility and having opportunities to transfer to different departments/locations, but it feels that once you're assigned into a department you're pretty much stuck there.

    Pros

    Lateral mobility is excellent and supported by management. There are always a variety of projects and opportunities. There is flexibility to work part time and/or flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Young people are leaving to a point that the demographic group seems to be missing. Our organization is more complex than most. Salaries and bonuses are lessened in the past several years. There is a strong culture of blame in upper to middle management.

    Advice to Management

    We are reactive when we should be strategic and forward looking. We are inward looking instead of outward. Our structure needs to be more vertically aligned about projects and customers.
