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

    Pros

    Many of the products used in the North American market are manufactured in and or supported by local sub-suppliers in the United States.

    Cons

    Management is always saying they are interested in saving money but knowingly wastes money by continuing to refuse to change the methods by which some things are done. The boasts of their quality rating but will not implement modest additional measures to ensure a higher percentage of quality and less error. Our customers continue to have repeated problems with quality issues even though Faiveley is aware of the issues. It seems that there are to many policies in place to protect poor workmanship and poor planning. Change is what is needed but at some levels change is resisted in order to protect well placed individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the barriers (policies and individuals) that prevent real positive change from taking place. Replace the CYA policies with common sense planning and practical doable solutions. Seek real long term solutions and not short term bandages for customer problems.

    Former Employee - Intern in Hosūr, Tamil Nadu (India)

    I worked at Faiveley as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    > Job safety is the reason to join this company
    > Opportunity to train abroad, recently the company has been acquired by Faiveley (hence the name) which has headquarters in Paris and the company is in more than 25 countries so lot of opportunity to go abroad
    > Location, the company is in hosur which is 40 mins away from bangalore.

    Cons

    > As the title says nothing much to learn
    > The high level managers overload you with huge amount of work which in time will make you loose interest in the job
    > A very unhealthy work environment
    > Work ethics and employee care sucks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has lot of scope for growth, but lacks effective managers and work environment

    I dont feel, and you can see many managers, but few engineers. (Actual Pro: You have the opportunity to become a manager as soon as possible with less effort)

    Cons

    Resistance to change, no systems. Person dependent. Knowledge sharing is very minimum. Every one trying to create monopoly.

    Pros

    Good support of CoCs for the Indian unit to cater to Indian customer. Benchmarks in railway industry worldwide.

    Cons

    Unsound compliance to policy that changes based on situation, biased, aggrandised leadership, flaterred management failing to see faults. Ruffled up ethos, Top uglies of the day mindset-no top beauties, disregard for merit, good contributors easily forgotten, favouritism and resting on old laurels, no long term strategy or roadmap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing-any advice is seen a rebellion.
