"Take good care of employees"

Current Employee - Engineer in Aiken, SC
Current Employee - Engineer in Aiken, SC

I have been working at AFS full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The company does really try to make the employee happy for the most part. For example, if you had under 70k in salary, they gave a special bonus of $750 in 2012 and other stuff like that, which is very nice.

When Areva parent company did not do well in 2011, the CEO actually traveled around the globe to communicate with all employees about the down time.

The work is ok, I guess, not particularly hard, but it can get stressful sometimes.

Cons

Working in Aiken is kind of a cons since the town is pretty small and there's pretty much nothing to do.
There's not very much chance to move up the ladder, I know some people being here for 10 years and still doing the same thing they did 10 years ago, and no promotion whatsoever.
Hiring French expatriates is kind of expensive but they still do so extensively although the US workers can do the same job as well.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay for the area, flexible time with good benefits. If you are into Nuclear Engineering it's a good place to start but not a good place to end up.

    Cons

    It's a tough industry with a great deal of uncertainty. It's not really an inspired place and I found most people were lifers who found one job and stayed there forever if they weren't eliminated. The company has undergone so many changes in such a short period of time. The French owned and operated management appears to be indecisive and contradictory many times, which creates a serious tense environment full of anxiety and instability. Could be a culture gap though .. tough to say.
