    Pros

    Clean work environment as long as you stay away from the epoxy equipment. Great people besides management.

    Cons

    Management has no clear direction on anything. No bonuses. No profit sharing. Hard work will get you nowhere. No chance of moving up.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your employees than your shareholders.

    I have been working at Itron full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working in Services is great because of the people you work with, they are all excellent.

    Cons

    The fact that we hire people and immediately throw them into the fire with minimal training is ludicrous. If we train them properly, and not just on how to do their time sheets, it would lighten the load for the rest of the team where they are assigned.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the 6 week training program from a few years ago. Online training is nice for refresher courses but can'take replace classroom discussion and hands-on experience with the software.

    I have been working at Itron full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not many anymore. The company used to take care of its people, but has shown a lack of consideration for production employees.

    Cons

    Lack of caring for production employees. Very unorganized when it comes to management, logistics, quality, and so much more.

    I have been working at Itron full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Itron is full of smart, hard-working people developing cutting edge, exciting technology. The culture is one of respect, honesty, and mutual support. I actually like coming to work every day. To my knowledge, women are paid on par with men and have very good career opportunities.

    Cons

    Management has been working hard at organizing to handle our ambitious development schedule, but there's still a bit too much chaos and flying by the seat of our pants. Keeps things exciting though!

    Pros

    Great benefits, work flexibility, cutting-edge technology, smart people, and you directly contribute to the success of the company. Passive people who wait for work assignments will not be successful here. You must be proactive and quality focused.

    Cons

    Inconsistent raises, no on-boarding training program, and facilities need updating. Employees must keep their skills updated on their own - the employee training program is in its infancy.

    Advice to Management

    Implement employee training programs from basic onboarding to learning about complicated technologies. Improve career path support.

    Pros

    great opportunities to work cross functionally, management is listening and there are more and more training and advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    there are some very old school thinking managers here that do not allow simple perks, like flex hours, etc. luckily there are not many left

    Advice to Management

    keep it up! the focus groups have obviously helped tremendously.
