    Listening to the employees more often and try to follow their ideas from time to time. Communication and transparency should be improved.

    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best salary for how low expertise is required. Good benefits. Good relationship with colleagues if you speak french. If you know how to play the ball you can climb the ladder of success very fast, especially in management.
    Competent production environment which is building safe and reliable.
    Very good looking in the CV.

    Cons

    Very inneficient core engineering: Huge tolerance to psychological harassment. The expertise and knowledge is raising enormous opposition and marginalization. R&D is a joke which lacks vision and courage.
    The corruption at low and medium level of management is usual. On product development the technical reasoning is the last to be taken in consideration. Very old and conservative technology. Spending huge amount of monney( company and government) on fake or useless development projects. The high management is completelly disrupted from reality and is blindfolded by colorful, otimistic and false reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support and recognise the technical expertise no matter the color of the skin. The aircraft is flying with science and not with bill 101. Layoff the army of incompetent coordinators which are explaining the evidence in never ending meetings. Stop harassment, reorganise completely the HR department. Reward innovation , start from scratch a new R&D based on competency. Surround yourself with competent peoples even they might be more knowledgeable than you are.
