    Excellent Benefits. Very relaxed culture. Very smart people. Unfortunately not too good in choosing managers.

    I worked at ALSTOM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Salary, Offices, Really smart People

    Cons

    A few manager focused too much on the short term. Cyclical business (and layoffs). Slow to adapt to new technologies though when I left it was already improving. Some manager manage by bullying employees, regardless of their actual performance. Too focused on "performance reviews" and not actual job done.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at ALSTOM.

    Interview Details

    Very easy and typical. Questions about the resume, a visit of the office and factory, meeting of the managers you'd work for. Casual.

    Negotiation Details
    Ask 20% and accept at 10% of what they offer. They offer cheap. There is a lot of turnover. If you are a good match for what they are looking for they will probably consider your terms.
