    I worked at Telvent full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Positive collaborative environment. Employees were open to new ideas & open discussion.
    Challenges and priorities were communicated openly and there was a positive reactionary flow to work when dealing with unexpected challenges.

    Cons

    Last minute code changes were always stressful, but that's going to happen in any development firm dealing with release schedules.

    I worked at Telvent

    Pros

    Larger company with potential for employee growth and global opportunities.

    Cons

    Too much margin focused from corporate office in Spain. Projects lost the uniqueness and were see only for revenues, hence project life cycle development suffered and system for project delivery were of lesser importance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the acquisition by Schneider Electric, more codified structure will help in defining and implementing PLC methodologies, which will further help the margins sought.

    I have been working at Telvent

    Pros

    very flexible hours and great people to work with. The teams have lots of fun outside of work. I have enjoyed my time so far here.

    Cons

    the travel requirements of this position are heavy. It does pay off with the flexible schedule when you're not traveling though.

    I worked at Telvent full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    in 8 years, I made good friends and great money, doing challenging, interesting things. there weren't a lot of crappy rules, ugly people, and no outright evil.

    Cons

    Although Fimi became part of a huge multinational, there wasn't any communication or movement between divisions at the technical worker level. My attempts to move on to greener pastures were not well received. The time I spent there hurt my career in some ways. I was stuck using obsolete languages that didn't help my resume. Once you're an expert, more years doing it really don't help. In hind site, I didn't spend ANY time at telvent advancing my career, other then being able to say that I worked there a long time and made them millions.

    I worked at Telvent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The facility is nice, they have invested in their employees and it feels like a group of friends working together. One of the first places I worked at that heavily used VMware and used it very well.

    Cons

    Use Lotus Notes and Blackberries (2010, maybe different now).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enjoyed working there and with most of the managers I encountered. Advise, keep investing in your talented crew, provide career paths.

    I worked at Telvent

    Pros

    - Good health benefits
    - Relaxed culture
    - Very interesting technology with which to work
    - That is about it.

    Cons

    - Poor Compensation compared to similar companies
    - Professional development and growth is seriously lacking
    - Terrible support systems
    - Employee Retention Issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management really needs to get a grip on the fact that they are a global company and start thinking about the professional development and growth of their current staff and upgrading their support systems. Not everything can be done with newbies and freeware...
