    I worked at Wabtec

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Wabtec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots to learn since Locomotives are a complex electro-mechanical system with computer control. The people are great to work with, and have much experience to share.

    Cons

    Recent downsizing, but steady future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training, training, training.
