      I worked at EDF Trading as an intern (less than a year)

      Pros

      Good compensation and opportunities for career advancement. Hard work is generally recognized. A lot of very intelligent people to work with.

      Cons

      Location is less than desirable. Upper management is chosen for market expertise and is entirely unrelated to their leadership. Not a good place for employees without substantial experience. Surprisingly corporate.

      Advice to ManagementAdvice

      Pay more attention to the people who work for you. A lot of people get stuck in a routine and could be accomplishing a lot more.
