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.

    I have been working at Itron

    Pros

    Itron is a global electric metering company. I joined in a mid-level position from a higher position with a small company. If you are interested in the field, or in smart grid, Itron is the place to be at the moment. They are expected to have a very good couple of years as many utilities spend stimulus money on products that Itron sells

    Cons

    Itron is not the best place to work if you're interested in software development and energy consulting. While there are good opportunities in these areas, don't be fooled by the clean tech aura that Itron has. It's fundamentally a metering company, and that's where investment and focus is at the moment. Many of the employees in the software division have been there since the acquisition of smaller companies, and they have been absorbed into the bigger organization. Sr. leadership in this area is questionable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While software is a small portion of revenue, it is what makes the grid "smart". Put appropriate resources to it, and bring in solid technical leadership with experience developing consumer and enterprise software solutions.
