    I have been working at Itron full-time

    Pros

    We are doing amazing things at Itron. It is some of the most interesting work I could imagine doing in this field.

    Cons

    Management does not understand the extremely complication nature of our technology. They think everything is easy, but in fact we have some of the most complex technology on the planet. It is the requirements that are complicated, not just the way we implemented it. This means they think everything should also come very fast, which is very far from the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Finally realize you are asking us to work miracles, and that takes time. In fact what we are doing here is more complicated than anything Apple does. When you ask for 5 man years of work in 1 year, and also expect high quality, you have a paradox. When you ask why we don't get as much done you ask, that is the reason. All the stuff being done to make us work faster is actually addressing the wrong problem. The most notable one would be shifting engineering to India, which has not worked well at all and has been an enormous burden on the company, which clearly isn't visible to those outside of engineering that actually has to work with them.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Itron.

    Interview

    Its very bad management. No coordination and very slow process. The location is very remote. Till last moment i was not informed if they will take care of travel. Disorganised, but very good technology.
