    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Look for more innovative ways to retain staff during periods of financial restraint - your employees are you engine for success.

    Pros

    You will have the opportunity to work with very knowledgeable and experienced people

    Cons

    As any other company that evolves in the aerospace sector, Bombardier's lack of organization stability won't encourage you to stay and develop yourself professionally. I have had 5 different supervisors in 4 years.

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace

    Pros

    9-5 work time, but my team was really relaxed about what time we arrive as long as we don't miss mandatory meetings. The general rule seems to be that as long as you get you work done, no one questions you. My team members were great, but I think that just depends on luck.

    Cons

    Very traditional company culture - quite bureaucratic. Sometimes hard to get things done, and it's important to choose what you say wisely. It seems like there's a lack of structure for deadlines also.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully after these past couple of years there will be much less layoffs. Management should work on transparency.

    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.
