AREVA overall is a good company to work for, as all places, the majority of the employees are competent and enjoyable to work with. The most difficult part of the day is dealing with the regulations that come with the nuclear industry.

Generaly a good environment with some very nice people.
Technical Specialist II (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 20, 2013
Pros: nice area and building
A typical day at work consisted of being busy on what ever project is at hand.
I would like to see them have better training for all levels of employee's
Management, a better vision of the people at all levels.
Co-workers overall are very good.
The hardest part of the job is not having enough information, not involving the group at certain levels, and – more... for a designer they really need better training.
The most enjoyable part of the job, when there is a clear defined task and everyone is working together to accomplish it. – less

Depressing and less motivating
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee), Lynchburg, VASeptember 17, 2013
Pros: the overall benefits is not bad, people are nice to work with, job security when economics is good
Cons: management and rewarding system are messed up
The depressing and less motivating work environment may have something to do with the corporate culture as well as concerns within the nuclear power industry. Redundant management teams and heavy overheads are dragging down the efficiency. More emphasis on people management rather than technical management tends to give wrong directions, which also – more... messes up the rewarding system, e.g. people that are technically strong with high productivity may be less rewarded than those who knows how to talk and play the game. – less

Team Leader/Supervisor (Current Employee), Lynchburg, VASeptember 2, 2013
Pros: good benefits, fun activities
Cons: flat organization - difficult to advance
AREVA primarily provides goods and services to nuclear utility companies. Therefore, AREVA's quality of deliverables must match the high expectations of its customers. The same is true about worker safety.

All my co-workers are highly educated. They are motivated to be as productive as possible in order to help the company's revenues. They take a high – more... amount of personal satisfaction by collaborative efforts.

The company is divided up according to disciplines. So, it is challenging to align one team's goals with another team.

The people are friendly. Co-workers are from a variety of countries, so one experiences a wide variety of cultures and languages. – less
