    I have been working at Wabtec full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Vast knowledge due to numerous equipment of different configurations. Challenging based on multiple car builders and preferences. Flex timings. Competitive benefits. Multi tasking allows gain of knowledge at different positions.

    Cons

    Low pay. Ample vacations but cannot take several days at once. No sick pays or makeups are mandatory even for salaried professionals. Micro management and younger engineers given leadership roles over senior engineers. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Reward seniors engineers and trust their judgement. Let the experts do their job.
