    I worked at AREVA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had been there a long time and I'd developed some really nice relationships. I had five weeks of vacation along with one week off at Christmas time. I do miss that.

    Cons

    The nuclear industry is really not doing well right now, therefore, the company isn't doing really well in the United States.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it. The United States needs a nuclear power.

    Pros

    They think outside the box. They treat you like an adult and I have never been micromanaged. They provide ongoing training opportunities and invest in their employees. I love that they allowed me to work remote for five years to care for my family out of state. There is a life work balance. Benefits are great

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of a con as my experience at work has been nothing but fantastic. If anything, the few that abused the sick leave policy to the point you had to curtail it to 7 days was annoying but not the end of the world. Ok I wish non exempt folks could bank overtime like exempt folks. I'd rather bank 50% or all of my overtime rather than be paid overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to think outside the box and apply those management tactics to employee needs. It encourages long term loyalty and commitment to a job well done

    Pros

    Great 401K

    Hours
    Advancement
    I like the company a lot and they have been very good to me. Over the years there has been up and downs, but they treat every one very good.

    Cons

    Management is a little top heavy. The company used to be very adaptive a quick to respond to customers needs, but over the past 5-10 years we have lost that focus and ability. The good news is it seems we are headed back in that direction and becoming customer focused again.

    I worked at AREVA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As an intern for 2 years I had an excellent experience with Areva. They are very concerned with safety, upper management is very knowledgeable and supportive, and the pay is good.

    Cons

    I did not personally experience this, but many employees are required to work many more than 40 hours closer to deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Reallocate workers on a project to help balance the work load.

    I worked at AREVA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse engineering products for the commercial nuclear power industry in the US, France, Japan, Finland and China

    Cons

    The company started over pricing engineering assets due to increased overhead. Foreign ownership of US Plants limits this companies growth potential.

    Advice to Management

    Productivity from upper management as well as project assigned engineers and consrtructors
