Associate Design Engineer (Current Employee), West Union, SC – April 2, 2012
Pros: lots of diversity and co workers are helpful.
Cons: office location is not good
Typical day start with scrum meeting. we discuss about what we are working on, are there any outstanding issues and weather there are any road blocks to meet the specified goals. Then we work on our task assigned for that week. When i joined itron i was a recent graduate without any job experience. I learnt lots of things at itron like coding in C#, – more... how smart metering works, how to maintain and create automatic software build process, how to work in group and interaction with third party companies and so on. Most enjoyable part of job is coding in C#. Co-workers are helpfull and they have always given me advice and helped during my starting days at itron. – less

Operator (Former Employee), West Union, SC – January 4, 2013
Itron worked 8 hr shifts, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. The 2nd shift was the make up the difference in production shift which is the shift I worked on. The employees at Itron were encouraged to learn almost every job in a department so that we were flexible in our duties to best achieve production. I really liked Itron's insistence on team work to get things – more... done. Thanks to a bunch of overachievers in our department we got things done and then some. The hardest part of the job was learning to do so many different jobs in such a short time. However, the most enjoyable part of the job was learning to do so many different jobs in such a short time. – less

Project Manager / Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Liberty Lake, WA – November 19, 2012
Typical day was 7 am till 7pm then called on the cell at 10pm with an "emergency" that had to be done. Worked 2-3 more hours. Never could work enough to make them happy. Was salaried so never compensated. No such thing as a true vacation. Was ALWAYS called on days off and vacation. Was called with family critcally ill in hospital. Always too much work – more... and not enough people and on hiring and salary freeze so no raises. No fun. – less
