    Pros

    Flexible work environment with an attractive culture and work/life balance. Great opportunities for mentorship and knowledge transfer. Direct management is engaged without being interfering.

    Cons

    Industry Downturn has lead to significant staff reductions and, in my opinion, an unsustainable drive to reduce overhead and internal costs in order to remain competitive. Conflicting messages from upper management regarding company priorities and direction has caused uncertainty with staff in the last year.

    Pros

    This company has always been a great place to work. Great pay, great benefits, great people, and interesting work. Incredible diversity and until recently invests tremendously in their employees.

    Cons

    The nuclear services industry has been shrinking and it is much more competetive. AREVA has a niche in this industry for specialized work but utilities are kicking the can down the road for specialized projects due to their own limitations. There have been many reductions lately to remain competetive.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are in the dark about the direction management is taking. We all want to align ourselves with the changes being made.

    I worked at AREVA full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, people, pay, locations, experience

    Cons

    Reduced US market share, downsizing, top heavy structure

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting talent go and saying that it is for the better of the company -- it is not. Develop what you have rather than focusing on reducing the number of employees to reduce costs. Look for other ways. Make innovation a value rather than just an idea; likewise with continuous improvement and LSS tools. Why on Earth did you do away with LSS for groups other than fuels?
