    I have been working at EDF full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a large company, so there are good and bad managers. It really depends on who you get. It's a good ol' boys club. If you play golf with the boss, you get a raise! There's a lack of communication and collaboration between teams so expect each team to focus on building their own empire - however, the gross ineptitude of managers to get off their high horses can lead to highly entertaining . Managers with poor management skills aren't given training on budgeting, time-management and employee leadership skills so employee turnover is frequent and employee satisfaction is low.

    Cons

    Good benefits. Good people. Nice office location.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on collaboration. When CEO invites employees for breakfast he should acknowledge and then address specific concerns instead of making excuses for them. EDF is currently a company in a growing field but it operates with an old and outdated business model and mind-set.

    Pros

    You can have a lot of vacations and work on very interesting and diverse projects. It's a friendly place to work, and you can have many training about security and to learn more about the company.

    Cons

    It's a shame we have to follow political decisions (as the state owns 80% of the company). You may have to fight to get a real computer too, and the administration processes can be slow.

    I worked at EDF full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. x

    Cons

    Management is in denial and does not want to hear the truth. Not a good place for an honest, transparent employee to be. Top management does not lead and there is no accountability.

    Advice to Management

    You will continue to lose business until you face and resolve your many customer issues and organizational dysfunctionality.
