    I have been working at Itron full-time

    Pros

    We are doing amazing things at Itron. It is some of the most interesting work I could imagine doing in this field.

    Cons

    Management does not understand the extremely complication nature of our technology. They think everything is easy, but in fact we have some of the most complex technology on the planet. It is the requirements that are complicated, not just the way we implemented it. This means they think everything should also come very fast, which is very far from the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Finally realize you are asking us to work miracles, and that takes time. In fact what we are doing here is more complicated than anything Apple does. When you ask for 5 man years of work in 1 year, and also expect high quality, you have a paradox. When you ask why we don't get as much done you ask, that is the reason. All the stuff being done to make us work faster is actually addressing the wrong problem. The most notable one would be shifting engineering to India, which has not worked well at all and has been an enormous burden on the company, which clearly isn't visible to those outside of engineering that actually has to work with them.

    I have been working at Itron full-time

    Pros

    Itron has a more than reasonable flexible/reasonable work/life schedule. When things need to be done or fixed, the pressure is on, but thankfully this is not a constant. If you can complete your required tasks and still work from home once a week, more power to you.

    The technology and market are interesting with lots of potential for growth.

    Cons

    Communication from management has improved, but the market is very much in flux, so it can feel like they are not on top of things.

    Salaries aren't terrible, but could be higher frankly. (bonuses can make up for this )

    Very little room for growth, and very middle management heavy.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Large company, but the upper management makes you feel like family. Plenty of ways to move up, if you want..

    Cons

    The shifts were 12 hours and very hot where I was located. The cafeteria is only open to weekday employees, leaving weekend out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making the on the floor, feel like they're appreciated. That alone can make a difference in a company.
