    Former Employee - Junior Researcher
    Former Employee - Junior Researcher
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere, a friendly and family attitude in some departments.
    Free 1st class train transport whenever and wherever in France.

    Cons

    The pay is poor in comparison with other companies in similar sectors.
    The job prospects are rather limited for a research engineer beginning his career.

    Advice to Management

    The SNCF is very set in their ways, however recent university graduates generally want a company for which they can make a significant difference with an outcome that will not be slowed by administration and because change is not necessarily seen as positive.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at SNCF full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    L'emploi est plus ou moins garanti par rapport au secteur privé.
    Plusieurs corps de métiers côtoyés chaque jour.

    Cons

    Le plus gros inconvénient c'est la hiérarchie, la direction. C'est le centre même des problèmes. Pas humaine, pas compréhensive, fourbe, lâche, menteuse... Les mots ne manquent pas! L'évolution de carrière est un mythe. Réorganisations et suppressions de postes incessantes. Dévalorisation des métiers et des agents qui sont pris pour de simples matricules. la direction signe des chartes qu'elle n'applique elle même pas.

    Advice to Management

    Revoir d'urgence le management et l'accompagnement des salariés en difficultés. Et l'entreprise se portera mieux. Arrêter de confier le management à des diplômés d'écoles de management et qui n'ont pas pratiqué le terrain avant d'arriver à un poste d'encadrement.
