I worked at Wabtec full-time

Pros

-Excellent benefits package -Great opportunity for hands-on learning

Cons

-strong "us vs them" mentality (ex: union vs non-union, wabtec vs industry, workers vs management) -very blue collar work culture -shady business practices (ex: working overtime without overtime pay) -sense that employees stayed at the company because they were stuck there -short term thinking (tries to nickel-and-dime costumers) -top heavy with management execs

Advice to Management

-move away from "old Pittsburgh" culture -thin out management -rethink company operation

    Pros

    Fairly stable company, interesting products, good people to work with, work/life balance does exist. The corporation carries no debt. Well run at the very top.

    Cons

    At the divisional level, it is too tactical and not strategic. Lack of true innovation. Too many people just worried about getting the next job out and not the long term health or opportunities of the industry. HR benefits are meager. Office decor is depressing.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to get more creative and flexible - more vacation, flexible hours, some form of incentive based pay for the "little guy". We are not all locomotive assembly workers. Cater more to what white collar professionals expect and can find in other companies.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Interesting to work with subways

    Cons

    It is a large company that is run like a mom and pop shop. Everything is done on a shoe string budget. Turn over is hi. And every one is pushed constantly,

    Advice to Management

    I don't think they have a clue and advice would be lost
