    I worked at Wabtec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Most Employees are reliable and easy to work with. Work at your own pace (given you actually work and try). Pay is excellent once you reach top out, with yearly cost of living raises.

    Cons

    Some politics on certain shifts, job advancements are hard to come by. Do not put your name on anything that you didn't do yourself. When busy, 6 or 7 days a week is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how many hours it would take to finish each weeks orders and Start a Daily Production Board, set goals for each department to hit daily or weekly.

    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!
