    I have been working at Alstom Transportation full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunities for leadership and management. Strong supporting structure for professional development. Must be willing and able to manage up and down to succeed, as is the case with all organizations.

    Cons

    Slow moving Central teams that aren’t always aligned with the various regions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on locally developed talent. ExPat program isn’t always fully aligned to the long term needs locally.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Alstom Transportation (Rochester, NY) in March 2008.

    Interview

    I went through a series of interviews on two separate occaisions. I met with the leader of the Contract Management function, and representatives from Project Management, Legal and what's called a Customer Director. This position is a combination of a General Manager and Sales executive who is dedicated to specific customers.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a mock situation involving problems with a project team's performance and the customer's constant changing requirements. Basically, how would you handle yourself , and what would you contribute to solve the internal and external issues.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Reasonable, but took some time.
