    Pros

    Great coworkers and a few hidden stars in management. This is a decent starting place for interns and junior staff.

    Cons

    Aerospace management is plagued by cronyism, nepotism and "yes" men.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck trying to get back "real" employee engagement. Your engagement survey has become a piece of fiction for employees.

    Pros

    Its a paycheck - pays the bills. It is not a place where you can build a career. If you are a recent graduate, it may be a good experience of how not to treat others.

    Cons

    Look at their stock price and turn over ratio. Leadership bully's there way and if they don't like you, you are gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage not bully

    Pros

    Legendary business, and visionary Canadian family business, compensation is still on the high end of scale if you are an engineer.

    Cons

    Mediocre management and yes boss culture promotes no integrity.
    Minimum training and growth. Top management has been blind by sysmetic mediocrity. Too many hierarchy levels filtered out info required for good business judgement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where is your integrity and caring for people, once was the best of the company.

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exposure on resume...experience in aerospace. .. middle managers and supervisors and individual contributor employees make it enjoyable with the relationships you develop with them.

    Cons

    Women will never excel in this organization... Many Sr. Managers focus on their own personal growth... absolutely no work life balance with 14 hr days as a daily occurance... zero onboarding process... lack of dealing with poor performers... little reward or recognition to high performers... turnover high especially in human resources... uncaring Sr. Managers treat employees like numbers instead of people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on one plan and stick with it ... stop changing direction every year... deal with your poor perfomers and reward instead of bombarding your high performers with more... focus on your most expensive and precious asset: Your people!!!
