    Pros

    Financialy strong company with solid management team. Laurant did a great job bringing his son along. Pierre has become a competent executive, very bright and he is willing to fly on his own ability and not hide behind his family or father!

    Cons

    They made a mistake by moving all there senior exec. out. Company has a lot of untested managers who are not ready to stand up and deliver!

    Advice to Management

    They need to bring some senior people back in play as they are the ones who can pull things together if given a chance.

  2. Diverse company that is poorly run and managed

    Pros

    Excellent on the job experience and opportunities to develop negotiation skills.
    Lateral moves are fairly easy to do in most cases.
    Talent for the most part is high.
    Exposure to many disciplines within aerospace.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there are VERY weak mid level and senior level Managers. The type that somehow get to their position and hang on to it as long as possible.
    The bureaucracy is bad...way too many layers of approvals for simple projects. Work processes are a mess- simple tasks that should take days, take weeks or months.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep talented employees from leaving because in the end without a strong team you will be nothing.

  6. Good place to work.

    unstable senior management with a lot of strategic projects that create unrest and stress at the workplace and does not really help.

    Pros

    Employer as a large organization gives the benefit of total exposure in its engineering/ manufacturing environment.

    Pros

    Nice projects. People are easily available when needed. They are always available when needed.There is a lot of opportunity for improvements.

    Cons

    Due to the hierarchy of Bombardier, there is a lot of meetings and reviews for each project.The agenda is very quickly fielded. Also, priorities are changing easily. Need to be very flexible.Lot of approval processes that bring delays.

    Advice to Management

    Since there is no Project Management Office, there is no more standard for the project management practice. Biombardier would get a lot of benefit putting in place a new PMO.
