    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    If you enjoy traveling, it's a good company for that, but otherwise the pros aren't much. Not many pros, but anything they don't have to pay for is a pro, as they love to overcharge their clients.

    Cons

    Let's see, where do I start...
    1) Low ball on their offers, by over 20% of the market rate. Very little to no advancement, if you push them by saying you will quit, you might get a push but it's not worth it to beg for it - everyone in the company has a big mouth!!
    2) I was told I will only be traveling 50~70%, ended up at over 95% for the year and working weekends for no overtime or PTO exchange. I also was told that every 3 weeks of travel, you will be given a week to work remote, guess what - that didn't happen.. maybe every 3 months you might get a week remote (home). If you don't like seeing your family and friends except on weekends, then this job is right for you!
    3) Management doesn't think about talent, only focus is money, and how much they can use you before you run out of fuel. Talent is leaving, right an left due to the fact management is too wall Street driven.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employees, stop only looking at numbers, because you aren't advancing in the industry due to loss of amazing talent due to your narrow minded approach to market.
