About This Company





Freebase CC-BY Source: Freebase, licensed under CC-BY


Engineering Project Managers represent the higher end of the earnings spectrum — in fact, median pay for this job is the highest at approximately $129K annually — though Engineering Supervisors, Nuclear Engineers, and Mechanical Engineers also do fairly well at around $82K, $73K, and $70K, respectively. Earning only $64K on average, Electrical Engineers make less than most people in the company.

Years of Experience

Workers who have been with the company for more than one year but less than five can make about $69K per year on average. Those who have five to nine years of work experience see average salaries of $82K annually. The greater proportion of employees (33 percent) report 20 years or more of experience and bring home median pay of around $127K per year.


When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck ($100K annually) can be spotted in Richland, Wash.; Lynchburg, Va. (about $91K), Charlotte, N.C. ($81K), and Columbia, Md. (approximately $76K) are the next top-paying cities. Approaching the lower end of the pay scale (at $63K) is Aiken, S.C. By state, the highest compensation levels appear in Washington, where the average salary is $124K per year.

Certifications and Degrees

Being a Project Management Professional certainly has its perks — salaries approach approximately $119K annually and far exceed the paychecks of those without certification. Bigger paychecks are awarded to Certified Professional Engineers with credentials; these people earn about $96K per year on average. Employees who have a Doctorate (PhD) make the most here, hauling in $104K annually.


In this position, it pays to have Project Management in your toolkit; employees who claim proficiency enjoy a higher median salary of around $122K per year. Engineering Design is considered a run-of-the-mill skill; just under one in three of Areva's people use it regularly. Technical Analysis, ANSYS, and Microsoft Excel are also desirable skills.


At Areva, there are significantly more males who responded to the survey than females — the male-to-female ratio is more than 3 to 1.

Only one in three survey participants at Areva enjoy paid vacation time, and just a quarter of survey participants can take sick leave. A large number of employees plan for retirement by taking advantage of the company-sponsored 401(k) program.

The list of perks also includes life insurance, tuition reimbursement, flexible hours, and a casual working environment.
