    Negative Outlook

    I worked at EDF

    Pros

    Good brand to have on your CV

    Cons

    Not a meritocracy. The company has been under financial pressure for years now so all of the emphasis has been on cost cutting and keeping pay low, especially at the more junior levels. Very difficult to be promoted in role.
