EDF Houston, TX (US) isn't hiring right now. Check out all EDF jobs
I worked at EDF full-time (More than 3 years)
A great place to start and grow. Good starting salaries and performance based bonuses. Many young professionals keep it competitive; many whom are hungry to move up. Good training programs and opportunities to jump to other areas if you can show initiative. Very flexible in terms of family/work life. If the company is successful, everyone enjoys the spoils.
UK/NA/Paris office differ in culture and direction. Sometimes it seems as though the EDF machine stalls with lack of clear objectives. There are some that have been there since the Lehman era that have hit a wall and really don't bring anything new to the company. Retention for top talent is not great. Bonuses for trading isn't just performance or book based but how the company does overall. Some good performing traders get shafted while others who get by reap in the benefits.
Advice to Management
It's hard to steer the North American ship with UK and Paris at the helm but try to become more independent. Great business model.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EDF (Houston, TX (US)) in July 2013.
I had one interview that lasted for two hours. I met with a senior VP for all Back Office, Head of HR, my Group Manager and the person I was replacing. It was a typical interview, they asked for my background and sought out to see if I had the knowledge for the position. HR was alot of situational questions and HR typical questions.
They initially came with a low offer and said this position does not pay that much, but they do negotiate, I went up 25% from my initial offer.
