    Treated like crap if you are lower than Manager level

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople I work with are very good and supportive

    ConsMontreal HQ and the drones that work there. They do not respect anyone who is does not work there and have little regard for you if you do not have Manager in your title. Very very little opportunity for career advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a serious look at this Company that you are DESTROYING...it is the people on the ground floor who are supporting your grandeous titles and your flamboyant lifestyles...you are taking salaries that you do not deserve and pushing out substandard products. You are a disgrace.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work for but not very stable job.

    ProsInteresting experience, I've learned a lot during my job. Good salary, great benefits. Vacation time and sick time are to be appreciated.

    a good last resort

    Engineering Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsInitially I had many opportunities to move internally, gain new skills and progress professionally.
    Where else can you walk out of your office and TOUCH your product...especially if it is a $50M airplane?

    ConsExecutive management, are disorganized and slow to react to issues.
    DREADFUL work life balance and terrible working culture
    Increased focus on Francization means opportunities to progress to director level and above are few in Toronto as power is consolidated in Montreal

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointing, not what expected

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsExposed to many situations you would not normally encounter, people are great

    ConsLeadership direction is constantly changing, always jumping from one thing to another, never knwo where you are heading. Total boys club, unless you are male and speak French forget about advancing

    Advice to Senior ManagementPick a business plan and stick to it for longer than 1 year

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
