Too big to maintain a consistancy of production on a timely basis
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON1 April 2019
Very interesting work environment. Bogged down by paperwork simply because of the nature of the production. Personalities too diverse to maintain a focus on timelines. Communication problems because on diversity.
Pros
Excellent advancement and job security
Cons
Cannot get a solid focus because there is too much interaction required.

Power plant turnarounds
Millwright Foreman (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB5 December 2018
There is much work going on in all areas of the plant with many different trade designations. The types of equipment that we Millwrights worked on were turbines, boiler pumps, air heaters, boiler soot blowers, Id fans, Fd fans, Pa fans and flyash precips. It is a very fast paced work environment and one must take the time to think about the tasks and be safety minded when executing ones tasks.
Pros
good pay
Cons
long hours

Good place to learn
SAP Master Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON10 October 2018
ALSTOM is a great company to learn new skills. The bosses and work culture is great. The only problem is that, for at least 2 years, they ask you to work under a recruiting agency.
Pros
a company which believes in employee empowerment
Cons
takes to long to get permanent

Mechanical Engineer (CAD Specialist) (Former Employee) –  Hornell, NY10 October 2018
Excellent work environment and generally nice people to work with. A number of locations depending on your dept etc.

Typical day at work involves hitting your tasks until interrupted by design reviews and discussions.

Efficient people trying their best with available resources.

Collaboration all over the globe is a challenge.

Work-life Balance
Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON28 June 2018
Alstom provided work-life balance with the option to work at home when needed typically due to bad weather. Time away for medical appointments were never a problem.

Standard Factory work.
Overhead Crane Operator (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON29 March 2018
Standard factory work, though the moral of the work force could be better. Management instituting mandatory over time, and very little addressing of the concerns of the employees.

Poorly managed Company
Electrical rectification Technician (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON20 March 2018
Alstom is just concerned about gaining contracts in North America. The Citadis Spirit light rail trains are very poorly made and are very in-safe.
In a nut shell Alstom Transport sells a train to North America, produces the train very poorly, and will charge the client through the roof maintaining the train over the next 30 years.
Thumbs down to this company.
Pros
New technology
Cons
Very secretive with their actions. Very shady business practice.

Great overall atmosphere
Electromechanical Field Technician (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON11 December 2017
Pay is OK, would be much better if it was not done through a recruiter. We lose around $7 an hour to the recruiter which is more than aggravating. Management is great, however, and most that work there are very friendly.
Pros
Cool work
Cons
Pay
