    Good company to work for, but not always. Looks like every 5 years they are letting people go with out much heads-up.

    I have been working at Bombardier Flexjet full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is favorable. Co-workers are pleasant.

    Cons

    When DAC / Flight Options acquired us, our benefits were slashed. Someone with the company for 14 years lost 18 days of time off. Under Bombardier, we got 6 days PTO, 4 weeks vacation, 4 floating holidays, and 8 regular holidays. Under DAC's plan, we receive 12 hrs per month for all the above and 6 holidays. It's pathetic.

    Pros

    great mission , Superb co-workers

    Cons

    Management should not take anonymous hateful reports about crewmembers to be fact. This company railroaded a Captain on untrue facts based on anonymous reports that ultimately lead to them using an impossible set up in training simulator that lead to unjust termination of a Captain

    Pros

    Good equipment to fly wit great passengers who love us because of how we take care of them.

    Cons

    I guess if u r a favorite u can err more than an unfavorite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to us. The communication seems to be at a dead stop right now. DAC took over. Several conferences took place and then suddenly the key players stopped sending us the flow of what is going on. As employees we need to be reassured because this takeover is still new to us. We support it but keep reassuring us. I am sure it will work out.

    I worked at Bombardier Flexjet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people are amazing and make for a fun, collaborative environment.
    The product is one of the best in the business.
    Under Bombardier, great corporate responsibility and community involvement.

    Cons

    Organization is small, not a lot of advancement opportunities.
    New ownership seems shady with questionable ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to be in tune with what is happening within the employee base.
    Focus on personal and professional development since there are not a lot of growth opportunities.

    I have been working at Bombardier Flexjet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Every coworker was genuinely passionate about their role in the company's well-being. It was an inspiring atmosphere. HR was kind and helpful when involved in habitual verbal abuse by ___ senior manager. Cannot say enough about my co workers! P O and T O are amazing!!!

    Cons

    Intolerable, borderline harassment, style of operational management. Complete disregard to efficient communication. Facilities and Operations is in shambles due to antiquated and inane "'voicemail and paper notes on door' communication protocol." In less than 3 months, discarded of 8+ employees before hiring me for the same position... all based on a loosely fabricated explanation which no one seems to question. "Staples not at a 90 degree angle" "Missing office chairs you didn't realize existed" "Gone to long retrieving the 3rd, freshly brewed, 1/2 Non- pour over, decaf pike roast, two shots of decaf espresso, as the first two did not work. Awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate management on all levels. Happy employees make happy clients. Happy clients make money. Out with the old, in with the new.

    Former Employee - CAM in Richardson, TX

    I worked at Bombardier Flexjet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with, worked well as a team and were overall good people. The team culture worked well and was fun. Overall, a great place to work and a fast paced, fun aviation culture. The HR department and operations side of managers are great.

    Cons

    Upper Management from the CEO down to the regional managers in CAM don't know how to lead and are quick to let good people go. There are glitches in the system for which I was let go recently. Management never acknowledge the issue or offered the job back even though an email was sent to everyone in my department after I was let go. Mistakes are not tolerated and you don't get second chances especially on the CAM side unless you are one of the favorites or been there for a while. Its supposed to be an open door policy, but its not that way. Loyalty is of no value to a few of the regional managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and don't let good people go so fast. You aren't always right
