A typical day at AREVA
Structural Engineer (Chief checker) (Former Employee), Erlangen, GermanyMarch 20, 2013
Pros: low budget lunches
Cons: managers don't know what their inferiors are doing.
5:30 getting up
5:45 taking a bus to my office
5:58 entering SIEMENS/AREVA area
6:00 switching all the lights on of that 100 engineers counting office
6:00-8:30 Checking the design calculation reports and drawings of OL3-steel platforms [NPP Olkiluoto, Finland]
8:30-8:45 Tea Coffee Time
8:45-12:00 While checking another OL3-steel platform I have to – more... answer a lot of questions of unexperienced structural co-engineers.
12:00-12:30 Lunch
12:30-16:30 Checking another two platforms.
16:30 Going home.
The hardest part of the job has been at the beginning of my job, when I had to check all incoming steel platforms without any help.

good labour conditions-38 days holiday in france!
Thermal-hydraulic Engineer (Former Employee), La Defense, FranceJanuary 18, 2013
Pros: 8 weeks holidays per year thanks to french legislation
Cons: living in paris, very few opportunities to develope your position, frozen salaries after fukuyima
Working in France has lots of advantages regarding working conditions. i think no country gives you almost 8 weeks per year plus the non working days. at the same time it feels like working for the goverment, no pressure.
the biggest complain i have is their management. their strategy was/is/will be a failure in the near future. if they dont stand up – more... to the challenge they will be absorbed by EDF, as i dont see the french goverment allowing them to bankrupt. – less
