    Committed to the Utility industry. Differentiated tech. Culture is to make the customer successful. Influence and ability to bring new products to market successfully.

    Running too lean. Doing more with less has limits and consequences. Too reliant upon individual efforts and relationships. Backlog of development.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Review processes for inefficiency, like redundancy, inconsistency, and tribal knowledge. Review partnership operational benefits to create more value. Drive culture of accountability.

    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 8 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Itron as an intern

    Pros

    Excellent job experience for an intern. They really let you get your hands dirty, and are understanding of mistakes. They let you learn and grow, and get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    Accounting Department is a mess, but there has been a change in management the last few years that are turning it around

    Advice to Management

    Better internal control

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

    Pros

    Healthy work environment and reasonable level of opportunity for career advancement. Strong benefit package and ability to work with people from around the world on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Slightly understaffed at the lower levels of the company. There always is more to do than we can accomplish. Overstaffed at the higher levels of the company and this has not paid off in terms of gross revenue for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of low performers and replace them with higher quality employees that can help us get more work done. With larger companies like Honeywell entering our market, we are now behind the competition. You have spent over 2 years coming up with the plan for the future. It is time to act.

    I worked at Itron (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are very nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. Site I worked at was kept pretty clean and was run well. Because of visitors dress code was a little strict.

    Cons

    Seems to be slow to clean up, or update equipment. Appears to have round of layoffs every couple years.
