    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Pretty good work/life balance, depending on department.

    Cons

    Very little training for employees, first level managers sometimes chosen with very little qualification for the type of work their employees were doing. Upper level management not good with sharing information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Own up to mistakes, also recognize issues with lower level management before all of the valuable workers leave out of frustration.

    Pros

    This company will not let you get bored. Career advancement can happen quick for the right people.

    Cons

    Not good for the home life. Long hours (compensated).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just like many companies, there are high quality managers and others who should re-evaluate their positions.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Good local management team in Des Plaines.

    Cons

    Looking for any kind of career growth here? Forget it. Very small outpost of the company in Des Plaines. Also, it is an aviation/aerospace company so expect wild fluctuations in the overall business. And, yes, they do RIFs (we just went through at 15% reduction).

    Former Contractor - Manufacturing Engineering in Wichita, KS
    Former Contractor - Manufacturing Engineering in Wichita, KS

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great People!!!! Company is working on the cutting edge of a new technology and because of that, there are many areas that can be improved. Bombardier is moving in the right direction (with the products) but because of a struggling economy their management had to make a lot of tough decisions like letting people go. I was laid off at the end of 2013 but I would go back and work there if I had the opportunity.

    Cons

    Too much Work was being outsourced to Mexico, bring the jobs back to the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring the work back to the US!!!!

    Pros

    Great benefits and professional environment.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go 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.
