I have been working at Itron full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Large on-site gym, sand volleyball and basketball in parking lot, friendly and appealing work environment, casual attire.
Business is strong and steady.
3 weeks vacation after 2 years.

Cons

Since it's in a small town the salary isn't as competitive.
Sometimes the pace of change is quite slow considering the fact that meters don't change a whole lot.
Self-improvement isn't rewarded. The rate of progression in the company is set in stone, so working extra hard doesn't pay off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Profit sharing is excellent, but would be even better if it wasn't paid out on such a sliding scale. I would be great if everyone got the same amount, instead of getting a percentage of your salary. Upper management seems a bit greedy on things like this.

    I have been working at Itron

    Pros

    The people here are very approachable, helpful, and competent. There is a lot of room for advancement, both upwards and sideways into other fields. The compensation and benefits package is on par with most other companies, and there are plenty of little perks to make it even better. There is plenty of work to be done, and a good mix of challenging problems to solve.

    Cons

    The investment community doesn't seem to understand the costs of making a good product. Itron doesn't outsource our R&D and production, which results in a fantastic product that happens to cost a bit more. Investors see this traditionally good way of doing business as a negative thing, which hurts the stock prices. They love us when things are good, but hate us when the least thing goes wrong. Decreasing stock prices result in losing good people and business, as well as stock option benefits. It's a great place to work, but it's sad to see such positive efforts going unnoticed by the rest of the world!

    I have been working at Itron

    Pros

    The tasks are intellectually stimulating. Management assigns projects and deadlines, and it is up to the individual to complete the task. There is very little oversight, unless poor performance dictates it.

    Cons

    Itron could do a better job of trainging. May of the jobs are sink or swim. If you learn fast then you will be fine at the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Currenrlt management is performing an outstanding job. There is plenty of work, and hopefully this trend will contine into the future.
