Software Engineer @ Elster/Energy ICT

Software Engineer (Former Employee) Raleigh, NC

ProsWhat can I say, it was a job. It was a place where I was told what to do and I got paid for listening and doing those things. The people I work with make most of the difference between a good job and a bad job. My boss was very good to me and the people I worked with were pretty cool. The job allowed me to be productive while also paying my bills. Life was good as it should. That is until the "Cons" arrived...

ConsElster was purchased by an English company named Melrose PLC. The philosophy of Melrose is to Buy, Improve and Sell. The word “Improve” is very subjective considering that their biggest change was the elimination of American jobs. I hear that things are getting better in India. Maybe it's time to move there and get my old job back ;)

Advice to Senior ManagementThe American dream will continue to die as long as our government does not protect us from corporations, globalization and the decay of rights. Everyone here in the USA including management should be kicking and screaming!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Elster conveys a miserly attitude to its employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Raleigh, NC

    I worked at Elster Electricity

    Pros: Enjoyed relationships with co-workers. Good location in Raleigh, NC. Company has a good… Cons: The primary frustrations from my time at Elster were a lack of promotion from within the company (ie: growing the talent you already have), and… Advice to Senior Management: Wise up! When good employees continue to leave your company, a good employer starts to ask "why?" - and then corrects the problem. The cost… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
