No opinion of CEO

I worked at ALSTOM full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Nice people and building but in an inconvenient area with gridlock traffic coming in and going out on Willows Road. Cars are bumper-to-bumper and you have to drive to go anywhere for lunch other than the on-site restaurant.

Cons

Still on Lotus Notes and entire IT part of company is really messed up and behind over 30 years. You have little to no guidance on getting to key areas as an employee with about 25 different log in links and passwords that aren't yours of choosing. It's an antiquated system and needs re-vamping. They keep saying they will change it but they never do. It's nearly impossible to work there and try to get things done. It's a really quiet place and you can hear a pin drop. It doesn't foster growth or imagination. You are locked out of most of the internet with their dated web browser security system. Don't even think of looking at Facebook or anything like that because you will be blocked.

Advice to Management

Get with the program and update your software and system for employees.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good place to get a great knowledge of manufacturing. Overall a great place to work, but it is a start up location so it has issues.

    Cons

    I do not have to many down sides as of right now, but a lack of transfer of knowledge would be my only concern.

    Advice to Management

    Push for a transfer of knowledge from each location so that Alstom can have a corporate policy that is followed.
