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

    Pros

    The company is doing some cool work in an important sector of the utilities industry. The technology is exciting and kept me interested in my work.

    Cons

    At the time I was there, management seemed to be having an identity crisis, and it was difficult to get a grasp on priorities... which resulted in sudden priority changes. In the training and documentation organization, we were constantly in a reactive status, which made laying in a good foundation for successful training programs extremely difficult. Management was sometimes promoted due to seniority rather than competence, which created leadership gaps and reduced morale.

    Advice to Management

    Aligned organizations should be working together, and not struggling toward conflicting priorities. Management positions should be based on high-performers and then supported with appropriate leadership training.

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

    Pros

    decent pay, especially for this area
    manufacturing and R&D under one roof
    relaxed work environment much of the time

    Cons

    It's located in West Union SC and there is hardly anything to do there
    There isn't very many other places to work in the area so be careful buying a house
    The products they make are pretty boring to the general public
    Many or most of the people there are pretty old
    they don't have a fitness center and wont let you throw frisbee in the grassy fields

    Advice to Management

    give more incentive to meet goals and deadlines
    work closer with the design engineers and notice who is actually doing the work

    Pros

    Company gives you a lot of time starting off as a new employee. Respects time off and benefits are pretty good. There are plenty of resources within the company that you can reach out to.

    Cons

    Hours can be a bit extensive for the amount of pay. Training was not there. Opportunities for advancement within the company are not there. Very large company, limits amount of time off that you can accumulate.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into training instead of throwing employees in there blind. Let current employees know of the advancements that are possible in the future. Company culture is currently not there.
