    People are nice, but their processes create too many roadblocks! Instead of helping the customer, it hinders our work.

    I have been working at AREVA T&D full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible, you don't have to dress up, the pay is fair, the location is great.

    Cons

    However, too much politics, lack of direction and very poor training. Thier processes are slow and hindering. They are asking for 90 days to pay invoices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers. Work with them so they can meet our needs as a team. Provide better and open training for new employees. Too many times, I didn't have access to the programs I needed. Waited weeks to get access!
