        Advice to Management

        Find the great managers that are respected and admired by their employees and use them to teach the weak managers how to lead.

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

          Pros

          Refreshing to work for an employer that seems to really care about their employees. Great benefits and generous time off. Alstom also is taking steps to continue growing in the industry.

          Cons

          Company has a tendency to make processes overly complicated. Time can be better off solving problems that have a bigger benefit to our company and customers rather than laboring through a presentation or form that has redundant information.

          Advice to Management

          Develop an ambition to reduce the amount of unnecessary information put into presentations and forms. Maybe emphasize this by utilizing a team that focuses on lean.
