    Pros

    Outstanding comp plan, company has an excellent work force at all levels.

    Cons

    Got rid of to many senior people and it is effecting company performance.

    Advice to Management

    They need to hire some of their senior people back as the current officers are not seasoned enough to deliver outstanding performance.

    Pros

    Company spent time and effort to make their employs feel special and need. The company made if clear that their success was depended on us and how well we peformed our jobs

    Cons

    Some of the managers made life difficult by passing their short coming down to those under them.

    Advice to Management

    I would be worth the effort to give phycological exams on those being considered for manager and above positions.

    Pros

    The pay is good and the people are friendly to work with. This company will make sure you have the tools succeed and the environment to thrive professionally.

    Cons

    Outsourcing has been the major downfall of this industry with layoffs of many people in their later years of their careers. Future projections are shaky due to the unpredictable enconomy.

    Advice to Management

    The methodology of downsizing should be reviewed to ensure that experience is retained in critical areas.


  6. Great experience, I have been able to far surpass what I expected when I started with the company (Learjet) 24 years ago

    Some middle management has the lack of decision making skills. (just a lack of training) takes entirely to long to get fixes in-place. to many different data bases in use for computer related functions

    Pros

    The people that I worked with in the hangers to build the planes were the best co-workers in the world.

    Cons

    Management forget sometimes who the ones are who really make the company work, the workers on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    I worked in Toronto but I worked with people from all of your plants. I think you should look at the people on the floor, I mean really look at them and realize that they are the reason your company is where it is. And that your product is as good as it is. Remember one thing those people are the reason you are making the money you do. If those people decide to put their tools down and slow down production you will lose money. It is not the people who work in the office or have the fancy titles on the door to their office, it's those people who work really hard to build the best that product.

    Pros

    It's a great company to recruit for. The calibre of people working there are the best I've worked with. The hiring managers were extremely impressive people! Everyone is very proud to be there as was I! Lots of long tenured employees. It's an incredibly interesting place to work!

    Cons

    With any large company there will always be changes in process. There is process improvement but then there are extremes. If you like routine and are bothered with constant changes in policies and procedures, then this will be an issue. Lots of turnover in Human Resources.

    Advice to Management

    Employees there need to take more vacation. There seems to be a very high level of stress and pressure and that can be relieved with more time off. Some employees under a certain pay grade are not entitled to take any vacation days during their first 12 months of employment and I found that to be strange.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, good oppotunity for development thanks to a pretty solid career and personal development program. Fun to work for an organization who`s products get lots of media attention, it can help put your daily work into perspective.

    Cons

    As with many companies, it takes alot of hard work and networking to get ahead. There is alot of internal movement but of course alot of competition.
