    I worked at Ansaldo STS (Genoa, Italy) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Still a small office with short distance to managing and sales department. Information possible to have in coffee room.

    Cons

    The Italian and French culture is bending in the company. The more Ansaldo STS top managements tries to be a global company with global structure the more they mess it up.

    Advice to Management

    If Ansaldo STS top management tries to implement Italien structure in Sweden there will be no business in Sweden

    I worked at Ansaldo STS (Genoa, Italy) full-time

    Pros

    The Australian Managers still try to maintain the team spirit and support (but it still lacks).

    Cons

    Goods and services are constantly on hold due to lack of payment to suppliers. Confusion over who is responsible for what. Working environment squashed and exposed. Salaries are not great. Difficult for advancement with more Italian's being sent over. No Staff rewards or its not done overall and fairly. More work for less acknowledgement.

    Advice to Management

    The Italians who infiltrate the Australian side (in Perth) in their dictorial manner don't try to understand cultural differences between countries or team spirit, its their way or no way and just make working there very unpleasant with their harrassment and bullying techniques.They speak Italian in the office, very loud and rude. This is Australia not Italy..... you fit in and adapt.. not the other way around.

    Pros

    Free parking, microwave, fridge, toaster oven, coffee maker. Performance bonus based on 2% of your annual salary or to the YES MEN. I was a 2%er.

    Cons

    Buying into the theory to become a "road warrior" vs. facing a layoff. A work environment based on who can sit in "the office" the longest and analyze the shop. A raise environment based on who can sit in "the office" the longest and analyze the shop. Too many supertech's climbing over one another to board the private jet to fly to Italy for a boardroom meeting.

    Advice to Management

    Be a manager, not an advice columnist.

    Recognised the talent you have outside of italy before all the competitors benefit from Ansaldo's losses

    I have been working at Ansaldo STS (Genoa, Italy) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Environnement de travail assez calme. Rémunération correcte.

    Cons

    Site mal desservi par les transports en commun. Manque total d'esprit d'entreprise, il y a très peu de collaboration (tant au niveau site qu'au niveau groupe). Les idées ne vont jamais très loin faute de moyens.

    Advice to Management

    Investir sur les compétences de chacun en accordant du crédit aux idées exprimées. Mieux définir les interfaces entre les différents métiers pour éviter le chacun pour soi. Ne pas perdre de vue que l'enjeu principal reste la sécurité!


  7. Bon encadrement et rémunération honnête !

    Pros

    Remboursement moitié des transports. Journée des stagiaire extra. Une fois par an les ressources hulaines organisent une sotie pour faire se rencontrer les stagiaires et alternants. C'est unique !

    Cons

    La boite se trouve un peu à l'écart de la ville et il y a un seul bus qui y méne directement. Vaut mieux avoir une voiture.

    Advice to Management

    Pas grand chose a changer. Les stagiaires s'intègrent assez facilement dès le début. Et il y a des possibilités d'emploi après.
