    Pros

    ok work-life balance, good benefits and vacations. opportunity to learn lot of new skills. good place to learn the trade

    Cons

    opportunities to progress stops after some years due to francization, management could be better (lot of layers). communication is very poor within the company. poorly managed top to bottom (with few exceptions)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take ownership and lead from the front. Address the market needs with the right product. be fair to your employees don't treat them like use and throw towels.

    Pros

    you have a very interesting job. Very stimulated, and rarely get bored. good time of policies 3 weeks plus 2 at x-mas.

    Cons

    long hours, required to work out of office. Don't plan a future working for this company. Layoffs happen left right and centre!
    No job stability.
    Little job training, it's more of a learn as you go experience.
    Everyone's worn so thin that they can't help you. Everyone working there does the job of two people, at least.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be weary of negative ninnies. I feel there needs to be more positive people working for bombardier to help boost moral. the job insecurity, overwork, etc... has the place feeling like a funeral home.

    Very, very Montreal focused company. Most opportunities for advancement given to Montreal personnel. Constant power struggles between operations, engineering and commercial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management, stop the competitive internal environment, the competition is external.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and a few hidden stars in management. This is a decent starting place for interns and junior staff.

    Cons

    Aerospace management is plagued by cronyism, nepotism and "yes" men.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck trying to get back "real" employee engagement. Your engagement survey has become a piece of fiction for employees.

    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.
