    Pros

    Swiss Federal Railways moves Switzerland. It is the backbone of transportation of people and goods in Switzerland. The products and services offered are among the best in the world.

    Cons

    Swiss Federal Railways is facing a changing business and political climate including looming strategic dangers. It is addressing the increasing complexities it is facing by traditional means which means it is getting more and more complicated internally.

    Advice to Management

    - Eliminate 1 layer from the hierarchy, 2 layers in the administration.
    - Streamline and simplify the incentive system.
    - Push decision power to the front lines.
    - Use internal capabilities better.
    - Establish a strict "hire internally first" rule.

    I have been working at SBB CFF FFS part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Spannende Aufgaben, Flexibilität, Teamgeist, Benefits wie GA, diverse Vergünstigungen, Handyabo bezahlt

    Cons

    Work-life Balance, Lohn, Führungsspanne zu gross (sehe mein Vorgesetzen max. 1x im Monat), Aufstiegsmöglichkeiten,

    Advice to Management

    Lohnstrategie ist eine Katastrophe, Hauptsache ältere Mitarbeiter verdienen sich die goldene Nase und die Jungen mit Uni/FH Abschluss erhalten keinen Rappen mehr, nach dem Abschluss vom Bachelor/Master. Aber Hochschulpraktikanten, die nach dem Praktikum eingestellt werden, verdienen sogar mehr als Mitarbeitende, die schon 5 Jahre im Betrieb sind und ein Studium berufsbegleitend absolviert haben. Es gibt in unserem Team Unterschiede von bis zu CHF 30'000.- und sogar mein Vorgesetzter wollte mir mehr Lohn geben, da es kein marktgerechter Lohn sei aber das HR lässt es nicht zu.

    Pros

    Place de travail presque sur.
    Ldt et cct (quand respectée ! Problème infra )
    Bon outils informatiques
    Vêtements professionnel
    Très bonne formation continu.

    Cons

    Manque de réalisme de notre direction.
    Prestation social diminue (absence de dialogue sociale)
    Peux d évolution de carrière pour les postes basés. (Mécanicien b100 chez infra par exemple)
    CCT et loi sur la durée du travail pas respectée, notamment sur les gros chantiers planifié!
    De plus en plus de team finisse dans des containers de chantier. (Sans eau souvent).
    Chef peux respectueux des collaborateurs (chez ih)

    Très mauvaise planifiquation des ressources
    Très mauvaise communication
    Mauvais système de qualification des emoloyés
    Collaborateur peux motivé en comparaison des bas salaire dans le domaine des travaux (monteur de voie, contre maître, b100 etc)

    Advice to Management

    Intretenir le dialogue social (de bonne prestation pour des collaborateurs motivé = succès au Cff)

    Meilleure réalité du terrain.

    Fin des qualifiacations individuel
