    Former Employee - Electrical Commissioning Engineer in Richmond, VA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Alstom Power full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Commissioning Engineers are like a family, always looking out for each other and bouncing ideas and quick on-site in the moment fixes off each other

    Cons

    Sometimes the supporting office forgets that the travelling commissioning engineers needs a lot of support and is the priority for making profits for the company. That culture must be adhered to, as when we engineers have issues and we falter, so does the office.

    Advice to Management

    Alstom is over now, it's GE. It's a rough environment supporting commissioning engineers and acquiring contracts.
