    Excellent Opportunity for Internships

    Signal Engineer/Coop (Former Employee)

    ProsGE Transportation offers a great work environment. The people are friendly and make a great team. They had a good mentorship program which had you reporting to a single engineer to learn and obtain work projects that could easily build up your skills. The life-work balance was excellent..

    ConsSome of the tasks could become repetitive and you could get yourself pigeon-holed into only doing a certain type of task if you don't actively seek out new challenges and responsibilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a better training/indoc process and materials.

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

    Good place to start your career

    Edison Engineering Development Program (Current Employee) Erie, PA

    Pros-Great salary for entry engineer
    -Great exposure to many fields of engineering/business. The locomotive product has so many integrates several different fields of engineering from structures to combustion to controls to circuit design.
    -Exposure to projects that really "matter"- Many of your assignments have a high impact on the business.You wont be wasting time on small time projects. Anything assigned to you is likely a very involved / crucial project.

    Cons-Work life balance can be really bad depending on the area you work in - they are very understaffed but refuse to hire more engineers to compensate, and end up working people weekends/very long hours to execute deliverables.
    -Upper management is very far removed from common sense - they are all seek the lowest common denominator to get the profit, even if that means cutting corners everywhere else
    -Workplace environment is really poor. Several buildings are very old with no new renovations. Parking lots are often dirt (or mud), pavement is old (except for the executive parking lot of course), buildings lack any sort of temperature control, facilities are just generally dim and antiquated.

    Very nice co-workers and a relatively relaxed work enviroment

    Signal Engineer (Former Employee) Jacksonville, FL

    ProsGreat management, the project managers give you adequate time to work on projects.

    You can choose what time you want to come in and leave for the most part as long as you work at least eight hours a day.

    You get your own office.

    Opportunities for managerial and lean training are available.

    ConsRelatively low pay compared to other companies.

    Raises are not a lot and do not happened very frequently.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo real advice to management, they were great, the only advice would to be maybe make the salaries slightly more competitive.
