I have been working at Itron

Pros

Employees are friendly, decent work culture, allowed to take your decisions to certain extent, not too much pressure unless you are a senior engineer

Cons

People working from ages so difficult to convince them for certain things, quite a lot of seniority rule prevails - not position seniority but wrt to yrs in the company, if a person can do a particular job they are very happy with it so they donot look at the bigger picture.

    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.
