Software Engineer at a Power Systems company

Software Engineer III (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

I have been working at ALSTOM full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat work environment, you get an office not a cube. The people are very nice and very smart.
You get good technologies to work while developing power systems software for latest Windows & Red hat platforms.
Most teams use agile methods:
-Planning session every 2-3 weeks
-Daily scrums

ConsPeople tend to work here for years so its somewhat hard to move up, but it's easy to move around.
Power Systems company, not a typical software company which some devs might not like.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlan better for deadlines.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
