    Current Employee - Engineering Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    Initially I had many opportunities to move internally, gain new skills and progress professionally.
    Where else can you walk out of your office and TOUCH your product...especially if it is a $50M airplane?

    Cons

    Executive management, are disorganized and slow to react to issues.
    DREADFUL work life balance and terrible working culture
    Increased focus on Francization means opportunities to progress to director level and above are few in Toronto as power is consolidated in Montreal
