Easy going work colleagues, very friendly
Geological Technician (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK30 November 2017
If you work in exploration, I suggest you find somewhere else. You work a lot of hours with not so competitive pay. Work/life balance is non existent when working in the field. Good office atmosphere. French management makes it tough for Canadians to move up and it's hard due to uranium prices being very low
Pros
Good atomoshpere, friendly workforce
Cons
Long hours, less pay

Un fleuron de l'industrie en souffrance
Ingénieur d'études procédés mécaniques (Former Employee) –  Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France12 September 2017
Grande entreprise née de la fusion des principaux acteurs de l'industrie nucléaire française.

L'entreprise jouit d'une expertise technique impressionnante et offre un très bon cadre de travail pour démarrer sa carrière dans l'ingénierie, notamment sur des projets internationaux.

Malheureusement, le status quo sur la question du nucléaire en France ainsi que les difficultés financières de ces dernières années limitent considérablement les perspectives de carrières.
Pros
Grande diversité des tâches, Projets passionants
Cons
Peu d'évolutions de carrière possible dans le contexte actuel

Chemistry (Former Employee) –  Canada8 November 2016
Management shows way to much favoritism. No chance for advancement. Friends move up the ladder not qualified hard workers. Camp life and fellow coworkers are great. The company itself is good. They need to take a look who is in the leadership roles.
Pros
Good money
Cons
Poor bosses

A good company to start your career with
Mineral Resource Geoscientist (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK31 May 2016
Management comes from France and it is expatriate for 4 years. AREVA is a state owned company. The company is in the process of radical restructuring. You can get a good salary and health benefits, insurance, company matching RRSP contribution, other small incentives. A good company to start with and to get work experience, but you will need to move if you want to advance your career.
