Work place not so much prefered.
Project Engineering Manager (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC17 January 2015
Very unclear organization with a lot of confusions.

Technical level should be improved.

Communication is not enough direct and clear.

Overall competences should be improved.

Work shall be redistributed to involve more available staff.

Work load is enough for the next 2-3 years.

Not too much.

Upper Management disconnect
Systems and Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Montreal, QC27 May 2014
While the company paid well, the main problem I had with Alstom was that the company's upper brass in France and Spain didn't seem to have much knowledge or interest in what was going on in the Montreal office beyond the financial results.

This resulted in having to adhere to company guidelines, protocols, and development and quality process elaborated for physical railway equipment having to be used for the much faster moving software process.

Ultimately, the stubborn adherence to protocol overall is what is hurting the company on the global level, as it makes it harder for it to react to issues and changes in the marketplace.
Pros
Well compensated and generous vacation package
Cons
Corporate financial troubles, High turnover leading to role confusion
