    I worked at ALSTOM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits; great professional atmosphere. Great opportunity for a variety of assignments for technical professionals. The potential to have a meaningful impact on large, important projects. Good opportunity to travel. Lot of attention paid to the little details that make the work environment pleasant.

    Cons

    As with most large organizations, a fair amount of "flavor of the month" type quality and improvement campaigns that were done for the sake of doing them without any apparent benefit. Some disconnect between the various divisions that were legacy companies from previous mergers and buyouts. Business outlook is probably not good in their market sector for the foreseeable future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fix what isn't broken.
