    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.

    Pros

    The work is satisfying and loved being around the aircraft and new development programs. Some very talented and hard working people working there.

    Cons

    Unstable financial situation and nepotism starting to come in with the latest restructuring. Many good people have been let go or are leaving - again (2nd time within 10 years) - and are unlikely to be seen again. Most of the engineers that were responsible in developing the original CRJ, Global Express, Challenger 300 (most successful products in the line-up) are gone and unlikely to return.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the qualified, experienced people needed for the job and stop thinking about your next career move. It was talented, dedicated people that made this company, not subordinates that were aligned with an individual's vision - it was team work, not top down management style. Go back and get some of the talent you got rid of and pray they accept to come back.

    Pros

    Iconic CDN company, every Canadian knows about it.

    Cons

    Lots of employee sleep on the job.
    Poor talent doesn't get laid off, leaving good talent finding better places to go.
    Confidential information is disclosed among employees when it shouldn't be.
    People are not licensed to do what they are supposed to be doing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people. Get rid of slackers.

    Pros

    ok work-life balance, good benefits and vacations. opportunity to learn lot of new skills. good place to learn the trade

    Cons

    opportunities to progress stops after some years due to francization, management could be better (lot of layers). communication is very poor within the company. poorly managed top to bottom (with few exceptions)

    Take ownership and lead from the front. Address the market needs with the right product. be fair to your employees don't treat them like use and throw towels.
