    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The salary for the responsibility given was more then adequate
    The coaching provided was immaculate leaving more then enough room to grow
    The separation benefit offered was generous and considerate for the period worked

    Cons

    The only down side i can think off is the ending off the position I held
    May be the fact that it happened quite quickly, and the policy in place with many large companies, that you have to leave at that moment seems to be robbing people of there dignity

    Pros

    At Bombardier you can really have work-life balance. Pay is good. You can learn a lot within the company as it has some good methodology. Good working and team environment. Possibilities of lateral move to experience different roles.

    Cons

    Poor management - some directors, senior directors and managers have no idea about what they are doing. Too many politics. There is absolutely no accountability and some coworkers can be really lazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much politics. Very disorganized sometimes. Need more structure and faster decisions. No accountability. Too arrogant because of their titles.

    Pros

    Exposure on resume...experience in aerospace. .. middle managers and supervisors and individual contributor employees make it enjoyable with the relationships you develop with them.

    Cons

    Women will never excel in this organization... Many Sr. Managers focus on their own personal growth... absolutely no work life balance with 14 hr days as a daily occurance... zero onboarding process... lack of dealing with poor performers... little reward or recognition to high performers... turnover high especially in human resources... uncaring Sr. Managers treat employees like numbers instead of people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on one plan and stick with it ... stop changing direction every year... deal with your poor perfomers and reward instead of bombarding your high performers with more... focus on your most expensive and precious asset: Your people!!!

    Pros

    Good for the CV. Benefits are good

    Cons

    You are not allowed to ask any questions that might point to a problem.
    Nepotism is seen at a very large scale; HR is not there for the employees, they seem very lost. If you are friends with the boss, then you will just sail through, even if you are a complete incompetent.
    People with no technical knowledge are leading engineering projects.
    No training is permitted due to cost containment. Young engineer are not being guided, very sad.
    Too many project leads/section chiefs/managers - who's working anymore?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be more technical and less political, look at where the political decisions got you.
    An overhaul of HR is needed.
    Many employees complain to HR, but nothing is being done.

    Former Employee - Senior Engineering Specialist in Montreal, QC

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A company that is prepared to take risks, invest in the future and develop employees to an extent. Employee communication has improved a lot. Lovely atmosphere in many departments, often a great cultural mix.

    Cons

    The can be issues of silos: such as between particular business divisions. Employee turnover was a challenge in some areas. Remnants of autocratic ways of working can remain, but has improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to take well judged risks - as you have in the past. Invest in talent: some of your engineers are many times more productive than others - find a way to reward that. Continue to promote communication and movement of skills/people across business divisions.
