    I worked at Électricité de France full-time

    Pros

    You can have a lot of vacations and work on very interesting and diverse projects. It's a friendly place to work, and you can have many training about security and to learn more about the company.

    Cons

    It's a shame we have to follow political decisions (as the state owns 80% of the company). You may have to fight to get a real computer too, and the administration processes can be slow.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Easy company to get on with. Hard to get fired.

    Cons

    Little under payed still. Not to fair across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let guys advance to fast. Makes everyone hate them and they end up messing up.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very forward thinking company that provides for its employees. Additionally, there is fairly consistent opportunity to move or be promoted internally. As with any company, you have to take the initiative, but the management currently in place seems to reward that initiative.

    Cons

    To my knowledge, the bonus structure is a black box and the reputation we've had is we underpay. I've heard thats changing, and I'd love to get on board that boat.

    Advice to Management

    Certain managers are outstanding and very hands on, others are dictatorial. If I had any advice to them, I'd say get on board with a cohesive and company wide thought on how to manage your personnel.

    Pros

    Challenging...opportunity for growth...enjoyed co-workers....enjoyed working with employees...location

    Cons

    For six months the supervisor told me my temp position was becoming permanent. When the CFO had to cut spending, I lost the temp position.

    Advice to Management

    They never should have told me my position was being made permanent until the CFO signed off on the paperwork. I turned down interviews to stay and do my job and overnight I was unemployed!

    I worked at Électricité de France as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyable work environment, relaxed day to day culture
    Structured intern program but also allow you to explore other groups
    Reasonable hours
    Competitive pay for an internship

    Cons

    Tasks between different interns vary from interesting to mind-numbing. Very dependent on your manager
    Some employees are decidedly unqualified

    Advice to Management

    Many employees spend their time working on meaningless or wasteful tasks.
    Enforce better record keeping for essential tasks. With employees often moving or leaving entirely, regular tasks fall apart because the person who originally designed them left.

    I worked at Électricité de France 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 Management

    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.
