    Pros

    Nice projects. People are easily available when needed. They are always available when needed.There is a lot of opportunity for improvements.

    Cons

    Due to the hierarchy of Bombardier, there is a lot of meetings and reviews for each project.The agenda is very quickly fielded. Also, priorities are changing easily. Need to be very flexible.Lot of approval processes that bring delays.

    Advice to Management

    Since there is no Project Management Office, there is no more standard for the project management practice. Biombardier would get a lot of benefit putting in place a new PMO.

  2. One of the best place to do internships in Quebec, especially for engineers.

    Pros

    I worked for BA for 25 years. The culture went from one of confrontation and mistrust to collaboration and respect. The work is challenging and very rewarding. The people are fun to work with. There are many opportunities to discover your true passion.

    Cons

    The company struggles with financial issues that sometimes results in layoffs. Aerospace is a very feast or famine industry

    Advice to Management

    Look for more innovative ways to retain staff during periods of financial restraint - your employees are you engine for success.

    Pros

    Great company with many great people. The projects are really interesting. Good benefits as well : you start with 3 weeks of vacation plus more benefits.

    Cons

    IT is a little rusty and could be a little more organized. Teams are using several old ad-hoc custom-made software. Newer airplane projects look better organized though and even use robots for assembly.

  7. Great experience, 22 years moving around and learning new stuff.

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities at Bombardier Aerospace if you lookout for them. I ended up in the IT department and it was big enough to even move within it. Its big size allows to make many friends and contacts.

    Cons

    Some projects are very heavy: in particular when submitting them at first to get approval. Aerospace has its ups and down: get ready to go through both hiring and downsizing periods.

    Pros

    Good working conditions and benefit. Good support from immediate management, good learning environment, friendly workers. In general, a very good place to work at.

    Cons

    Sometime too bureaucratic, need to follow procedure, getting other department to do their part of the job before you can do your part is sometime challenging, deadlines are sometime not well thought out

    Advice to Management

    For upper management to listen to the real time, it needs to take to get a job done.

  10. Good working environment / Most of people have over workload

    Pros

    Benefits are 2nd to none. Training is non-existant due to budget cuts. Flex time is great and christamss vacations are in addition to vacations.

    Cons

    Performance evaluations are done by at best average supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    You need to start a management school and train these guys.
