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

Processus lourd
Responsable validation (Former Employee) –  Ville St-Laurent, Qc23 May 2014
Il y a beaucoup de processus que la plupart des gens ne respectent pas ou ne connaissent pas mais qui sont exigés à la fin à la livraison ce qui cause beaucoup de délais.

La lourdeur bureaucratique rend un travail simple très compliqué avec plusieurs étapes de signature, de vérification et contre vérification qui sont faites pour la plupart du temps à moitié et à chaque fois que le processus a une ratée, il y a une nouvelle couche d'étapes pour s'assurer que le processus soit respecté.

Réunion, preuve de réunion et rapport de réunion. Réunion de début de travail, de milieu de travail et de fin de travail. Rapport journalier d'avancement en campagne de validation. Réunion préparation de livraison, réunion de livraison, réunion post livraison.

En validation nous sommes en bout de chaîne et nous avons des compressions de temps car toutes les autres équipes dépassent les délais de livraison. Coupure dans la validation donne à la fin un produit ou projet non validé dans son ensemble et le client final est rarement satisfait de ce qu'il obtient.

Les temps pour chaques étapes de conception d'un produit ou projet sont sous évalués
