Elster is an amazing company to work for. It is a great experience to have worked for this company. A very dynamic work environment with very smart people which makes every day at the office different and challenging. Elster feels like a big family.

High Managment turnover.
Field Services Engineer (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 4, 2015
Daily work was highly autonomous. Field service was completely customer driven. Worked with a great group of professionals. Managment had a very high turnover rate due to the company having 3 different owners in 5 years.
Pros
we were free to make decisions with our customers without red tape.
Cons
constantly changing corporate focus.

Firmware Engineer (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJune 18, 2014
The company is using outdated technology and doesn't seem to want to try anything new. Most of my day is spent searching for work to do. The company doesn't provide any kind of training, the skills go stale very very very fast.
Pros
very flexible schedule
Cons
everything else

Engineering (Former Employee) –  RaleighMarch 20, 2013
A bare bones no frills engineering firm with little opportunity for personal or financial growth. In constant turmoil and lacking senior engineering direction. Recently acquired by VC - gutted and stripped in hopes of a quick sell.
