    Pros

    Nice projects. People are easily available when needed. They are always available when needed.There is a lot of opportunity for improvements.

    Cons

    Due to the hierarchy of Bombardier, there is a lot of meetings and reviews for each project.The agenda is very quickly fielded. Also, priorities are changing easily. Need to be very flexible.Lot of approval processes that bring delays.

    Advice to Management

    Since there is no Project Management Office, there is no more standard for the project management practice. Biombardier would get a lot of benefit putting in place a new PMO.

    Pros

    Excellent on the job experience and opportunities to develop negotiation skills. Lateral moves are fairly easy to do in most cases. Talent for the most part is high. Exposure to many disciplines within aerospace.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there are VERY weak mid level and senior level Managers. The type that somehow get to their position and hang on to it as long as possible. The bureaucracy is bad...way too many layers of approvals for simple projects. Work processes are a mess- simple tasks that should take days, take weeks or months.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep talented employees from leaving because in the end without a strong team you will be nothing.

    Employer as a large organization gives the benefit of total exposure in its engineering/ manufacturing environment.

    Pros

    I worked for BA for 25 years. The culture went from one of confrontation and mistrust to collaboration and respect. The work is challenging and very rewarding. The people are fun to work with. There are many opportunities to discover your true passion.

    Cons

    The company struggles with financial issues that sometimes results in layoffs. Aerospace is a very feast or famine industry

    Advice to Management

    Look for more innovative ways to retain staff during periods of financial restraint - your employees are you engine for success.
