Long time employee

Project Engineer (Current Employee)
Chattanooga, TN

I have been working at Alstom Power full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAlstom is a well established company with solid customer base. They are diverse in the world of power generation although many of these resources are scattered around the world. They have good benefits and fair compensation. There is a good balance between work and home life.

ConsThere are limited advancement opportunities unless you are willing to relocate. For this reason personnel that become managers may not be the best candidate for a position, they may be the only one who applied. Technically, the company is driven from the bottom up, with managers who, both don't know enough, and don't care.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut personnel in place that are technically competent to run their departments. Listen to your employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
