      Pros

      Company with wide scope of activities where you can evolve and develop your knowledge in many technical fields. It is a great environment to work in where you are surrounded by experts!

      Cons

      The company suffer from the unpopularity of nuclear energy in France and the company is pointed as a non ecological one whereas I believe that a well controlled power plant can bring more to the environment that the fossil industry.

      Pros

      Pay was good, benefits were very good when I was there, but there have been changes. There are a ton of very bright engineers, and the work is academically interesting

      Cons

      There are way too many layers of management, in my initial positions, there were 6 direct layers of management between me and the highest ranking executive in Lynchburg, forget taking France into account. When in the field management in Lynchburg is making the decisions despite being out of the loop.

      Pros

      Flex working environment. Easy going people not much office politicals when you are in a project but not in the home office

      Cons

      the future of this company is not so clear. The future nuclear market will be in China, but Chinese government and companies are eagerly to adopt their own technology in the China market and export it. French style doing business is not wokring everywhere. Lack of positive response to customer

      Pros

      Used to be a good company with interesting projects

      Cons

      Management does not appreciate hard work and loyalty. Very limited salary increases. Promotions are nonexistent. No consideration to family life or work life balance. Focused on the nuclear industry that is dormant for the moment. Management are slow to react to market conditions with innovative ideas.
