    I worked at Électricité de France full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great place to start and grow. Good starting salaries and performance based bonuses. Many young professionals keep it competitive; many whom are hungry to move up. Good training programs and opportunities to jump to other areas if you can show initiative. Very flexible in terms of family/work life. If the company is successful, everyone enjoys the spoils.

    Cons

    UK/NA/Paris office differ in culture and direction. Sometimes it seems as though the EDF machine stalls with lack of clear objectives. There are some that have been there since the Lehman era that have hit a wall and really don't bring anything new to the company. Retention for top talent is not great. Bonuses for trading isn't just performance or book based but how the company does overall. Some good performing traders get shafted while others who get by reap in the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard to steer the North American ship with UK and Paris at the helm but try to become more independent. Great business model.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Everything there is topical - social responsibility, environmental sustainability, keeping ahead in a competitive industry..and not forgetting quite literally, keeping the lights on!

    Cons

    Actually I cannot think of many serious ones but like all big organisations it can sometimes feel like it is taking a long time to make changes and get things done but then again taking time can improve the end result.

    Advice to Management

    Carry on being bold and ambitious and keep the good relationships that you have built up with a loyal staff over the years.
