    I have been working at ALSTOM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay not too bad, good benefits with impressive pension scheme! Working environment is good and people seem to be very friendly

    Cons

    Communication or lack off it seems to cause 99% of problems! Factory building and machinery need to be modernized to keep up with competitors or risk being left behind?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall pay scale needs an overview to keep skills within the company!

    I have been working at ALSTOM

    Pros

    A company that is gloably present and gives the opportunity to travel if you wish to. Good colleague, and atmosphere. A good team spirit overall.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, which causes power to spread unequally: this prevents good decisions from being taken. Centralised power in Paris, where all decisions seems to be taken, with no or little understanding of what is really happening on sites. Too much useless reporting, which causes inefficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more local power but also and especially resources in order to match expectations.
