Pros

Bombardier hasan excellent compensation policy that is managed very well by the Board and Senior management. This company allows people to do their jobs and be creative and flexibly in meeting its challenges. The company is well lead by the senior management team but could use some balance by adding management form its foreign subsidaries.

Cons

Senior Management has a difficult time understanding market differences between US and Canadian Business. The problem was created as the company began to fill some key positions with Canadian Management these positions where not educated to the American position. This is not about right and wrong but about a lack of understanding which creates the problems.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To address the problems highlighted above management needs training, which would extend down to the worker on the floor. this could be done by a short course or even video.

    Pros

    The salary that Bombardier offers is very competitive in the Private Aviation sector. There are also 9 paid holidays. PTO, or paid time off is also available. If you are of certain ethnicities, you will be recruited aggressively. If you are not of those ethnicities, it will take months of persistence, follow-up, and calling to even be considered for a position.

    Cons

    The management at this location is incompetent, spineless, and without a personal morality compass. If anything goes wrong, managers hide in their offices. If employees are disruptive, or create conflict, you can expect that your manager will turn a blind eye to the situation. You are on your own. It is a Hostile work environment with no teamwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a stand. Believe in Something, and work to make it happen. Say Hello to people you work with. Look people in the eye. Have a spine and discipline the employees who create trouble instead of continuing to lose qualified, good employees.

    Pros

    Bombardier Transportation is definitely a good place to work. They are very serious about customer satisfaction , the technicans, and thesafety of their workers. Senior Management and HR open the lines of communication with "All Associate" meetings on a monthly basis.

    During the meetings the leaders of O & M, Quality, Engineering, Supervisors, HR and even the General Manager will participate in this open forum. The meeting is taken very seriously as a employee engagement tool. The management commnicates the busines information and feedback is taken to evaluate best practices.

    Also, there is a vey important shift to shift briefing to assist all in the daily operations of the monorail system. This briefing is very similar to other transportation industries and should be counted as a good benchmark and best practice.

    Cons

    The competition of the similiar industries encourages the technicans to move on. After getting good training from the site; the technicians seek employment at other transportation companies. The turnover of personnel with 1-2 yearsservice must improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the high employee turnover rates some local locations.
