    Pros

    Overall its ok, all depends on the people you work with (most are good). Salaries for the area are decent, although you can quickly become compressed with little that is done about it.

    Cons

    Going through a time period of uncertainty and restructuring in 2016. For the near future, there will be limited opportunities within the company for movement or advancement.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits: health, 401k, vacation etc. Great people and good office location. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Management is not making any effort to transfer knowledge to younger employees and there are no ways to actually move up within the company. You will be stuck in your position until you quit or get laid off which has happened quite often in the last 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Put in place more mentoring. Give employees more chances to advance in their careers.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are difficult to match. The office area is modern and in a very nice location close to recreation and shopping. Lynchburg area has low cost of living.

    Cons

    Long hours at nuclear power plant (72 hour weeks) for sometimes months at a time. Navy nuclear culture is not for everyone. Feast or famine at times as far as workload.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job of rewarding employees monetarily for work well done. They do need to consider ways to be more cost effective and competitive to keep workload more consistent.

    I have been working at AREVA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Competitive salary
    - Fairly flexible work schedule (choice of 8 hour days or 9/80)
    - Most of the managers are good with only a few that I would not want to work for

    Cons

    - Training. I feel that the training we receive is completely irrelevant to the work I actually do.

    Advice to Management

    Management talks about mobility and having opportunities to transfer to different departments/locations, but it feels that once you're assigned into a department you're pretty much stuck there.
