    Pros

    Has the potential to be a great repair station and some of the management is very good.

    Cons

    No money is invested in keeping the equipment current and available. Do not value good mechanics. Haven't had a raise in two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to put priority on good mechanics by rewarding great work with raises and bonuses. Moral is bad because equipment is not up to the top notch serivce that expected with the prices charged customers. Need to remove the managers that are competing with Bombardier business by offering less expensive services on the side and have had mutliple customers complain about. You have lost many good mechanics recently, need to find out why.

    Pros

    There wasn't anything positive to say. It was a job

    Cons

    Management wasn't strong. Office culture was not good. Gossip central.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They tried but overall it wasn't enough to save the company from the economic hardship the company experienced.

    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.

    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.

    Current Employee - Office Services Assistant in Richardson, TX
    Current Employee - Office Services Assistant in Richardson, TX

    I have been working at Bombardier Flexjet full-time (less than an 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.
