I worked at Électricité de France full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

A great place to start and grow. Good starting salaries and performance based bonuses. Many young professionals keep it competitive; many whom are hungry to move up. Good training programs and opportunities to jump to other areas if you can show initiative. Very flexible in terms of family/work life. If the company is successful, everyone enjoys the spoils.

Cons

UK/NA/Paris office differ in culture and direction. Sometimes it seems as though the EDF machine stalls with lack of clear objectives. There are some that have been there since the Lehman era that have hit a wall and really don't bring anything new to the company. Retention for top talent is not great. Bonuses for trading isn't just performance or book based but how the company does overall. Some good performing traders get shafted while others who get by reap in the benefits.

Advice to Management

It's hard to steer the North American ship with UK and Paris at the helm but try to become more independent. Great business model.

    I worked at Électricité de France full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a great work atmosphere. Culture and Values are very good. Compensation and Bonus structure is very nice. Good amount of perks. Back Office is well structured but its too top heavy.

    Cons

    Company has no sense of direction, Back Office is ok, but Front Office downsizes alot and then hires alot, retention rate is terrible. Senior Mgmt gives out mixed signals on growth. They do not take risks at all.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to structure EDF's relationship with EDF Trading in London, and figure out the relationship between EDF Trading in London with EDF Trading North America.
