    Bombardier Aerospace has a lot to offer in terms of advancement and relocation.

    ProsThe company makes great products and relocating to different states or countries is definitely an option after the first year.

    A comedy of errors.

    Technical Integrator (Former Employee) Wichita, KS

    ProsLoved the people who work here. Developed many lasting professional relationships as well as friendships. Compensation was competitive.

    ConsMany developmental errors in the program that cascaded down in the later stages of product development. A very difficult and stressful environment to work in. Due to the continual major design changes in the program, your best effort often felt squandered.

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

    Great company overall.

    Aircraft Mechanic A&P (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

    Pros-3 weeks paid vacation time. Ability to use as you please (depending on supervisor)
    -Very friendly environment
    -Bonus incentives
    -Company provides lunch a few times per year

    Cons-Money is currently tight. No employees received a raise (2014)
    -Took away college tuition reimbursement. I had already signed up and partially paid. Was never brought up on any meetings this was going away.
    -Tooling and equipment is in short supply.
    -Factory training on aircraft is in short supply due to budget cuts.

    Advice to Senior Management-Bring back tuition reimbursement (big hit to me and others)
    -Shake up the crews, people are getting to complacent and territorial.

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

    A great place to work if you like roller coaster rides.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Wichita, KS

    ProsProvides a fair benefit package. Decent income replacement programs. Accrued Vacation

    LearJet--Has Issues but its Improving

    Manufacturing Engineering (Former Employee) Wichita, KS

    ProsGreat People!!!! Company is working on the cutting edge of a new technology and because of that, there are many areas that can be improved. Bombardier is moving in the right direction (with the products) but because of a struggling economy their management had to make a lot of tough decisions like letting people go. I was laid off at the end of 2013 but I would go back and work there if I had the opportunity.

    ConsToo much Work was being outsourced to Mexico, bring the jobs back to the US.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring the work back to the US!!!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A lot of good times and experience, really miss the place.

    Project and Program Management (Former Employee) Wichita, KS

    ProsGreat product, beautiful airplane, benefits, pay. Nice and improving facility, clean, great work balance.

    ConsPerception from other department personnel was that our leaders had no clue on what they were doing. We were divided into two groups that never communicated. If you weren't in the "click" you were inferior.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would just suggest the old saying "all glitter ain't gold". Value your senior employees.
