Dysfunctional Private Aviation Employer

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Richardson, TX

I worked at Bombardier

ProsThe salary that Bombardier offers is very competitive in the Private Aviation sector. There are also 9 paid holidays. PTO, or paid time off is also available. If you are of certain ethnicities, you will be recruited aggressively. If you are not of those ethnicities, it will take months of persistence, follow-up, and calling to even be considered for a position.

ConsThe management at this location is incompetent, spineless, and without a personal morality compass. If anything goes wrong, managers hide in their offices. If employees are disruptive, or create conflict, you can expect that your manager will turn a blind eye to the situation. You are on your own. It is a Hostile work environment with no teamwork.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a stand. Believe in Something, and work to make it happen. Say Hello to people you work with. Look people in the eye. Have a spine and discipline the employees who create trouble instead of continuing to lose qualified, good employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Whatever promises have been given, they won't be kept

Specialist (Former Employee)
Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

I worked at Bombardier full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou are never bored, as your day never goes the way you expected it; you'll learn a lot on the go

ConsQuality sucks, HR sucks, IT sucks, organisational changes is the only thing the company consistantly puts efforts into (and even that sucks, nonetheless), best employees leave, not feeling appreciated or even noticed; mediocre remain; career advancement is based on favouritism and they'll rather take a less experienced external than promote their own great employees; turnover is more important than profitability… and you can only guess what this results in.

Advice to Senior ManagementRetire!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
