Pros

As a technical person, one is working with the world's leading commercial nuclear technology. This experience is very valuable within the nuclear industry no matter what career path is taken. There are plenty of opportunities for mobility within the company, and managers can't block a transfer to a different department after 18 months of employment.

Cons

The technical roles are often undervalued by management. There is a shortage of technical analysts, so they are encouraged to stay in the same role while receiving minimal progression in compensation as a group. The compensation pool assigned for the department as a whole is often barely in line with or just below inflation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider increasing compensation pool to nuclear engineers if there is interest in keeping qualified technical persons from seeking a management route.

    Pros

    Great advancement opportunities. Management promotes advancement. Great amount of knowledge.

    Cons

    People are very much in their own click of friends and help out only each other. Some feel as though they are better than others in the Accounting fields

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to spread the word about Nuclear Energy and its benefits to countries worldwide.

    Pros

    You are well-compensated for a job that is integral to the nuclear industry. Many times you have to be prepared to make decisions about your process that affect many things downstream, and that responsibility was rewarding.

    Cons

    The work becomes very daily-grind, and most of the people there have been there 25+ years. Their intractibility in changing the way they operate, even if it means vast improvements in yields and productivity, is mind boggling at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support ideas that come from even the lowest levels of the organization. The operators have more combined experience on the equipment than any engineer ever could.
