    Current Employee - Engineering Professional (Engineer III) in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Best salary for how low expertise is required. Good benefits. Good relationship with colleagues if you speak french. If you know how to play the ball you can climb the ladder of success very fast, especially in management.
    Competent production environment which is building safe and reliable.
    Very good looking in the CV.

    Cons

    Very inneficient core engineering: Huge tolerance to psychological harassment. The expertise and knowledge is raising enormous opposition and marginalization. R&D is a joke which lacks vision and courage.
    The corruption at low and medium level of management is usual. On product development the technical reasoning is the last to be taken in consideration. Very old and conservative technology. Spending huge amount of monney( company and government) on fake or useless development projects. The high management is completelly disrupted from reality and is blindfolded by colorful, otimistic and false reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support and recognise the technical expertise no matter the color of the skin. The aircraft is flying with science and not with bill 101. Layoff the army of incompetent coordinators which are explaining the evidence in never ending meetings. Stop harassment, reorganise completely the HR department. Reward innovation , start from scratch a new R&D based on competency. Surround yourself with competent peoples even they might be more knowledgeable than you are.

    Former Employee - Product Development Engineer in Montreal, QC (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Its a name that looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    The company does not know where its wants to be in the next 10-15 years.
    Product development is just a joke.
    Most of the work packages are out-sourced to suppliers. All one ends up doing is just integration (a.k.a baby-sitting the supplier)
    Management ALWAYS want to show the supplier in poor light, so that they can look good to their higher-ups. This generates unnecessary friction and lack of trust b/w the OEM and the supplier. As a result the supplier does not care about the quality of the end-product.
    For that matter there is in-fighting b/w product development groups across various locations.
    Basic communication b/w structure and systems groups is absent.
    Analysis methods and process are vintage 1950's! Core engineering group that is in-charge of bringing in new and improved methods of analysis has taken a hike!
    Company runs on deadlines that in most cases are un-realistic.
    Propriety methods from supplier's are most sought off as in-house talent is zero!
    No solid or strong focus on R&D.
    If you're not french and work in product development at Montreal, the chances of you getting side-lined are huge.
    Managers are biased and not fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and realize that you're in the business of making jets. If you want a piece of the action and want to compete with the likes of Boeing and Airbus, you need to clean up your act NOW!!!
    Invest in R&D
    Promote technical managers and not man managers.
    Put faith in people who can achieve and lead by example rather than those who just prepare colorful presentations, and can talk, talk and just talk.
    And finally for god sake remove the french bias. Its hard to imagine a company which has only french speaking people at higher positions when you're flag-ship products (including the C-series) carry the Canadian flag!!
