    I have been working at EDF full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - the only pro is to work in renewable energy

    Cons

    - management lacks the ability to lead and foster growth in their employees - when giving feedback to management, all they do is deflect versus trying to understand the root cause of the feedback - bullying is allowed in the company - unless you become "chosen", management will just ignore you

    EDFR is a fantastic company to work for. And the focus on deploying clean renewable energy is vital given the need to address climate change.

    I do not have any downsides to report on working at EDFR.

    Great people, colleagues, and peers to work with. Everyone is always willing to help eachother.

    Lacks formal management training. Management compensation is behind in the market. Work-life balance is what you make it, work load can easily take over if you let it

    I worked at EDF full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great exposure to renewable energy field. Good internal business relationships across company.

    Cons

    Company needs to clean out middle management. O&M is completely covering up poor managers and new EVP is not making needed changes. Poor performing director level in Asset Optimization is kept with poor to limited business skills and is holding back employees who can excel to cover up their inadequacies.

    Pros

    Awesome co workers and working hours

    Cons

    lowest pay scale of the industry, management will throw you under the bus to cover their butts!!. No real chance to get ahead in the company. Wont train for senior technician because they use it to make you do more work.
