Poorly organised tasks
Would be a good job if the supervisors had more experience and a better understanding of the work involved. There is no job security and you wait days before your contract ends to see if you are offered another one.

Competitive and fair
Alstom is a good employer however the work is project based and supervisor level upwards All work is to be done at a very high standard as they are project based and only with high standards and customer approvals can new projects be won. Safety has been the foremost criteria in all jobs.

OK place to work
Work colleagues are very nice and easy to work with. Mainly young people and very pleasant to talk to.
50 - 60% Doc control, the rest Project Assistant role.

Lots of flight bookings including international.

Search for good hotels (tripadvisor), also booked trains and cars.

Loved the booking of flights, especially international. Doing research and work out itinerary.

Loved working with documents, writing letters and e-mails to client (TfNSW). Loved being busy with doc control making sure everything was correctly registered and send out.

Nothing positive to say about the new management.

Loved organising events, eg birthday cakes, farewells etc.

Also made sure all the stationery supplies were ordered.
Pros
Work colleagues, variety of job
Cons
Non-communication of Senior Management.

Stay away from this company
Poor management, arrogant attitude towards clients, senior management push a culture of blame downwards to find a scapegoat. No employee development and a culture of over-time as part of the norm. You're likely to find residents in the cubicles as late as 10pm on any given weekday.
Pros
Free gym membership
Cons
Long hours, low job security and non-existent avenues for advancement, toxic culture

Worked as a casual for 11 years with them until due to illness(prostate cancer).Enjoyed working for them,interesting jobs,good supervisors and safe.
Mostly would work a ten hour day,six days a week.Worked with the Boilermakers on boiler outages first and then was picked up for the turbine outages assisting fitters.Always kept myself busy,made the time go quicker,learned alot about turbine work and doing it safely.Management were knowledgable and understanding,co-workers worked as a team,all doing their bit to get the job done quicker and safely. The heat,especially on Turbine work could be hard on the body,but you managed yourself to/and also got used to it. The most enjoyable part of the job (besides the pay) was the satisfaction of learning and achievement of tasks.Also making new friends, co-workers and bosses.

Good people,good conditions and pay
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 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.
Pros
A monthly barbeque
Cons
Sometime long extended shifts
