    Pros

    Good people to work with. Lots of friends. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen to the "troops". Too many politics for a comfortable work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to more than the Sales staff.

    I have been working at Itron full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Itron benefited greatly from the government stimulating the utility companies to investing the Smart-Grid technologies. They treated their people fine while the Smart-Grid investments were being made.

    Cons

    The government is no longer stimulating investment in Smart-Grid technologies, so the revenue stream is drying up and Itron is already changing how they treat employees. It is not a great place to work at this point, the end of 2012, and they will probably soon be MORE layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find methods that produce steady streams of revenue rather than quick hits. Push harder into the software arena and charge for software licensing, upgrades and support.

    Negative Outlook
