    Pros

    Dynamic environment with high prospect for company growth as the Smart Grid initiatives take off.

    Cons

    A lot of change going on as we become more assimilated into Telvent.

    Advice to Management

    Improve internal software tools to support service delivery, reporting, etc.

    Pros

    cruise control job. Lots of time to study for your next job.

    Cons

    dying tech stack. Teams not excited or motivated to achieve big things. lots of complacency.

    Advice to Management

    seems to be working for you. Honestly, it felt like a slow death to me, but if you think about it, it's making money and no one seems to care.

    I have been working at Telvent full-time

    Pros

    The Esri-based ArcFM product suite is an important product for the utility industry, with a good and growing reputation, and significant potential. The work we performed was interesting and the Product, Product Support, and Application teams consisted of a good group of motivated and dedicated people that were fun to work with.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge was a manager who was promoted too far up, that caused a large number of people to leave. This manager is no longer with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive salaries to employees. We found that most of us who left received significant pay increases from the new companies we joined.

    I have been working at Telvent full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of talent and industry knowledge. One of the last places not use the SCRUM methodology. It can be done.

    Cons

    Lots of working in "silos". One talented architect, one not so talented = taking 2 steps forwards and one step back.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to give. This happens at all companies. They should give more preparation in college on how to deal with these real life office politics.

    Pros

    The work is very challenging and there is plenty of opportunity to use problem solving skills. Great health benefits and stock options.

    Cons

    The smaller office often 'bucks the system' of the larger company with regard to common practices. The culture is very closed and isolated. After 9 months, I am still not considered part of the team with those who have been here a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Work-life balance should be incorporated at every level of employee, larger corporate objectives should carry larger weight.

    Pros

    Positive collaborative environment. Employees were open to new ideas & open discussion.
    Challenges and priorities were communicated openly and there was a positive reactionary flow to work when dealing with unexpected challenges.

    Cons

    Last minute code changes were always stressful, but that's going to happen in any development firm dealing with release schedules.

    Pros

    Larger company with potential for employee growth and global opportunities.

    Cons

    Too much margin focused from corporate office in Spain. Projects lost the uniqueness and were see only for revenues, hence project life cycle development suffered and system for project delivery were of lesser importance.

    Advice to Management

    With the acquisition by Schneider Electric, more codified structure will help in defining and implementing PLC methodologies, which will further help the margins sought.

    Pros

    very flexible hours and great people to work with. The teams have lots of fun outside of work. I have enjoyed my time so far here.

    Cons

    the travel requirements of this position are heavy. It does pay off with the flexible schedule when you're not traveling though.

    Pros

    Good people at the lower levels. Financially stable. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Short sided vision. Alienating clients. Your either in the club or your nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customers. Don't forget who got you to where you are.
