    Pros

    Great benefits, available overtime I'd you choose to work. Friendly coworker. Also a lot of vacation time and sick time. You can also sell back vacation time if you choose not to use them.

    Cons

    Pay freezes. Sometime they have pay freeze and no one gets a raise for a couple month to a year. Can be stressful if you are behind schedule. Sometime the management don't like to take advice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should listen to some of the mechanic for some advice. You should also reward worker who are always on time instead of punish them. There is a lot of guys that like to work overtime because they want the extra money so they slack off and slowing the whole line down and wasting company money.

    Pros

    Financialy strong company with solid management team. Laurant did a great job bringing his son along. Pierre has become a competent executive, very bright and he is willing to fly on his own ability and not hide behind his family or father!

    Cons

    They made a mistake by moving all there senior exec. out. Company has a lot of untested managers who are not ready to stand up and deliver!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to bring some senior people back in play as they are the ones who can pull things together if given a chance.

    Pros

    Abundant opportunities for growth and change
    Opportunities for advancement (too a degree)

    Cons

    HR is limited in selecting the right people to join and/or lead us
    Poor / slow marketing, product development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    we need to become humble and hungry again, as we were in the 1990s... we are too arrogant to see how we ourselves have contributed tot he state we are in today.

    Pros

    Great company with many great people. The projects are really interesting. Good benefits as well : you start with 3 weeks of vacation plus more benefits.

    Cons

    IT is a little rusty and could be a little more organized. Teams are using several old ad-hoc custom-made software. Newer airplane projects look better organized though and even use robots for assembly.

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities at Bombardier Aerospace if you lookout for them. I ended up in the IT department and it was big enough to even move within it. Its big size allows to make many friends and contacts.

    Cons

    Some projects are very heavy: in particular when submitting them at first to get approval. Aerospace has its ups and down: get ready to go through both hiring and downsizing periods.

    Pros

    Good working conditions and benefit. Good support from immediate management, good learning environment, friendly workers. In general, a very good place to work at.

    Cons

    Sometime too bureaucratic, need to follow procedure, getting other department to do their part of the job before you can do your part is sometime challenging, deadlines are sometime not well thought out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For upper management to listen to the real time, it needs to take to get a job done.
