I have been working at Itron full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Itron benefited greatly from the government stimulating the utility companies to investing the Smart-Grid technologies. They treated their people fine while the Smart-Grid investments were being made.

Cons

The government is no longer stimulating investment in Smart-Grid technologies, so the revenue stream is drying up and Itron is already changing how they treat employees. It is not a great place to work at this point, the end of 2012, and they will probably soon be MORE layoffs.

Advice to Management

Find methods that produce steady streams of revenue rather than quick hits. Push harder into the software arena and charge for software licensing, upgrades and support.

    I have been working at Itron full-time

    Pros

    no real work to do at all , no pressure, everyone can work as an engineer or manager even if you know nothing. noboady cares what you do , so you have plenty of time shopping on ebay, trading stocks or watching youtube. You basically get paid for doing nothing and having your own fun in you cubicle...that's amazing...

    Cons

    ridiculously low pay, huge lay offs now and then, if you r not good at kissing the right ass, you dead..
    management people are related and all family members, husband promotes his wife, wife promotes her brother, the brother hires his wife... good engineers and hard workers are disposal and treated like trash by them and get laid off easily.
    one star is tooooooooooo much for this company...

    Advice to Management

    how come you don't hire your mom and dad, that's unfair, if your brother can be the manager, your parents could be the CEO!!!
