    Any evolution looks nearly impossible without the right diploma (X, administration), inertia

    Advice to Management

    Insert managers in the middle & top management whatever the dipoma they have to add reactivity and pragmatism, to add humility (versus to much arrogance) and open-mindeness

    Pros

    Your life will be really stable if it's what you want. The employees are all passionate about trains, the ambiance is quite special.

    Cons

    As a typical French company, SNCF follow the typical routine of promotion. You gonna need a proper diploma to get promoted. And the stable rhythm is not quite suitable for the youth.
