I worked at EDF full-time (Less than a year)
Pays very well with easy oppurtunities to rise in pay every year. There is stability in working hours and location. 25 days holiday, 8.30 to 4.30 weekdays exclusively, outage pays 3 times your normal pay for double the hours and is manditory. Atmosphere around plants is relaxed and cheerful. Willing to ensure they hold onto good candidates with good offers.
Bad experience that will lead to you unable to get a job elsewhere. No reason to actually do anything, as there are people everywhere who are useless at their jobs being given promotions, or telling you that they can't do the work that you require them to do, with no option to find someone else, as they are the only ones who are qualified. No back up system, no work ethic, no job satisfaction. Instant bubble feeling with everyone within the company completely ignorant of jobs outside of the plant. Limited possibilities to become chartered, and no one interested in helping. Forced to pack lunch or put up with the most expensive school type canteens, half hour break does not give time to get outside of the plant, and all base locations are in the middle of no where. Disconnected management structure interested only in pushing graphs to look good and not getting work done, complete disjoint in communication between departments.
Advice to Management
Just sort it out. There is so much talk about stuff, so much that there is no time to actually do anything. Morning meetings are fine, but extended weekly meetings are more than a waste of time, they are actually detracting from employees ability to do their jobs. Continuous training had no relevance to most engineers, so why are they made to do it? Continually trying to make people think you are getting stuff done by setting up meetings to find out what the problems are is not ever going to sort it out, just get off your chairs and actually do something about it for once.
