    I worked at Alstom Transportation

    Pros

    Employee inter-relations is good, colleagues are very helpful and inter-department help is easy to get. Direct managers and team leads are a great resource, effective, well versed and very approachable. The directors are pleasant and effective.

    Cons

    The team is split working on different system sub-modules however do not interact often, fostering a silo work environment so getting a system view of the advance of the work is difficult to see. Training offered to employees is not well communicated and very scarce.

    Advice to Management

    Continue breaking down the silo effect and isolation between the different work groups within the teams. Improved communication from HR so as to show they are contributing to company (site) life environment and work atmosphere.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Alstom Transportation for more than a year

    Pros

    They know their customers, they sell their products

    Cons

    Too many procedures, a lack of communication between system engineers and developers, they should use more UML

    Advice to Management

    revise your procedures so that it becomes simpler so developers can concentrate on actual software
