    Great place to work

    Sheet Metal Mechanic (Former Employee) Wichita, KS

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsPay 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 Senior ManagementManagement 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Bombardier needs more than the Harvard review to succeed in this economic crises!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsFinancialy 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!

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