Current Employee - Project Manager in Redmond, WA
Current Employee - Project Manager in Redmond, WA

I have been working at ALSTOM full-time (more than an year)

Pros

There are a large number of engineers, software designers, and project managers who have been here for 10 to 20 years. The upside is stability, once you're in and proven yourself.

Cons

The downside is how slow the organization adapts to new markets, new ideas, new people.

The age old battle between the sales & marketing group vs. the operations group is very pronounced. It's exasperated by the fact it's a matrix organization. Projects are rarely completed on time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do proper estimates. Stop selling more than you can deliver.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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