    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at AREVA T&D full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, very smart people to work with, flexible work hours, plenty of work. I enjoy working here and the vacation, 401k, and health insurance benefits are especially good. The people are extremely smart, top leaders in their technology fields. The office hours are 10am to 3pm so early or late schedules are both possible. There is lots of work. opportunities to be involved in project, and move around the company.

    Cons

    Salaries are just ok. Training programs not very good, it's a 'sink or swim' environment. Employees supposedly get 2 weeks of training per year, but that doesn't seem to happen. The project work can be scattered and disorganized. Documentation is not a priority and often software documentation is insufficient to really understand the functionality.

    Advice to Management

    Institute more formal procedures to transfer the power system knowledge from older engineers to the young engineers. There is a lot of tacit knowledge held by older workers which will be lost as they retire. This can take the form of formal training or shadowing. It should be acceptable to move more slowly on projects sometimes to facilitate knowledge transfer.

    Senior Power Electronics Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tinicum, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AREVA T&D (Tinicum, PA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Phone Screen with HR, Called for onsite interview, six professionals interviewed including HR,
    Interview went very good, all questions were answered based on 15 years of experience in Power industry.

    2 days later informed by recruiter, " not an exact match for their requirements, will keep the resume in record"
    No courtsey to take for lunch, bad manners or protolcol

    After the interview,
    Felt like I have been used to resolve their thyristor stack related problems, since two of their engineers asked specific questions related to thyristor assembly and their specs. I recommended possible causes/solutions for their technical promblems based on my past experience in the industry.
