    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    None (maybe schadenfreude) actually, one positive -- it's impossible to get fired no matter how incompetent you are (really a negative because of all the dead weight and horrible managers)

    Cons

    way below market value salaries no pay raises (I know several people who have waited YEARS for management to complete an "annual" appraisal.) horrible benefits (worst options for healthcare I've ever seen) hostile work environment incompetent management horrible work environment (loud, distracting, no labs or equipment) all complaints, constructive criticism, and suggestions are completely ignored no... integrity in management (slimy used car salesmen who lie and blow smoke) no responsibility in management (always have an excuse for their failures; always someone else's fault) no trust in management no opportunities for advancement obsolete technology/languages hypocrites who do not follow company core values employees not seen as human beings; only seen as resources to be used or tossed

    Advice to Management

    To the executives in corporate headquarters: Fire all managers in Fort Worth, TX office and replace them with competent leaders who listen to employees and work with them rather than making ridiculous mandates such as: you will be happy at work (honest to God true statement from upper level management here).

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Wabtec full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent exposure to all aspects of the product design process. You are not just a drafter, quality engineer, data analyst, or technical writer as these projects are integrated, fulfilling and require and go-getter mindset. Friendly people with years and years of experience in the industry that are more than willing to help you learn and are patient to help you with different tasks. Wabtec recently aquired GE... Transportation and has doubled its size and has become a Fortune 500 company. Also, you will not be trapped behind your desk doing trivial work as you will have opportunities to travel and visit various sites that manufacture, test, and refine our products.

    Cons

    Sometimes work can get slow at times and it may feel like you have to constantly ask management for more tasks. However, this is not common.

    Advice to Management

    Build a comprehensive new hire agenda so that there is clear direction and exposure to aspects of the projects and products. I look forward to my future work with Wabtec and SCT!
