    Pros

    Great people, good fun and generally a good mix of working hard and playing hard. Good hours, benefits and holidays.

    Cons

    Do not apply for Bombardier as a graduate. The graduate 'programme' is miss sold. Very disorganised management and financial results are disappointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to start taking care of your employees.

    Pros

    Good on the job training

    Cons

    Advertised as a cross functional training "graduate program" but it is non-existent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More emphasis should be on training to graduates as some have absolutely nothing to do

    Pros

    People I work with are very good and supportive

    Cons

    Montreal 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take 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.

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace

    Pros

    9-5 work time, but my team was really relaxed about what time we arrive as long as we don't miss mandatory meetings. The general rule seems to be that as long as you get you work done, no one questions you. My team members were great, but I think that just depends on luck.

    Cons

    Very traditional company culture - quite bureaucratic. Sometimes hard to get things done, and it's important to choose what you say wisely. It seems like there's a lack of structure for deadlines also.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully after these past couple of years there will be much less layoffs. Management should work on transparency.

    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.

    A leader's role is to empower the working level employees. Stop having so many meetings with your seniors and work WITH your emplyees
