Bombardier is a customer service driven company that works hard to be the best.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tucson, AZ

I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time

ConsTwelve hour shift structure does not help with balancing personal life.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo to the old style shift structure to retain employees rather than sticking to the current style to try and squeeze efficiency out of constantly renewing and inexperienced people.

It was fun...at first

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAmazing benefits and somewhat competitive salaries, different opportunities for those with a higher education. Good work/life balance.

Consthey don't always do as they say (don't walk the talk), too many levels of bureaucracy and BS. Can't believe the company values are those of management
