Pros: people, salary, healthcare
Cons: no room for growth unless you could relocate.
Alstom was more like a family working toward a common goal. I worked with different business units acrocss our organization. I enjoyed working independently as well as with a team to solve any issues that would arise. A typical day would be assisting Service Engineers working with internal departments to ensure proper processes and efficient billing. – more... Setting up orders, processing documentation, calling customers, tracking opportunities. My most enjoyable part of the day was interacting with people. – less
Engineering Production Team Leader (Former Employee), Rocklea, QLD – January 14, 2014
Pros: a monthly barbeque
Cons: sometime long extended shifts
My day involved the production of large transformer coils and a big part of it was problem solving as no two transformers were the same. A lot of meetings involving design and manufacture problems. In my 16 years with the company I learned how to lead a team and use my knowledge in training new starters. Management over the time I worked there changed – more... significantly for the better as production workers were encouraged and assisted to train and apply for most supervisory and management positions. Due to the nature of the product,experienced people rarely left so good relationships were formed among and across the 8 specialised teams in the factory floor. I finished my last year as acting supervisor and I had 7 other supervisors and 4 managers to deal with everyday, so sometimes things got a bit frustrating. I just really liked the people and the satisfaction of being part of building something that took sometimes 6 months to build and see it work. – less
