Pros

Good working hours, unless your a shift work employee. Pay is satisfactory and benefits are quite good.

Cons

Typical union type environment, seniority always trumps ability. Old fashioned when it comes to working hours, no flexability and you'd better not be even a minute late.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Flexable hours and more opportunity for union employees would go a long way. Review pay scales, why does a non-skilled/educated employee make near the same wage as educated/skilled ones. Pay skilled people more and they will stay with the company.

    Pros

    You do get to work on aircraft.
    If you put in a lot of personal effort, you can learn some neat stuff.

    Cons

    The company pretends that it is in the big leagues, but in reality it is barely making it into the sandbox.
    Most of the work is tedious and boring.
    Internal procedures are set up to make efficiency impossible.
    Instead of concentrating on quality repair design, management would rather copy old designs and complete the bare minimum documentation to get by.
    It could be an interesting job, but unfortunately the company manages to suck all of the fun out of it.
    The benefits are terrible. Pay is not great.
    No feedback is provided in regards to performance.
    No opportunities for training or professional development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making a flaky, feel-good newsletter does not count as real communication.
    Some actual leadership and direction within the company would do a world of good!
    Try treating your employees like real people - show them some respect.

    Pros

    You are working on aerospace equipment - helicopters and aircraft.
    Some of it is older military stuff with full drawing sets which is a wonderful thing to have when solving problems and doing mods.
    Great customers - DND.
    It provides a good supplement to your military pension.
    Stable employment if you smile a lot and don't upset anybody.

    Cons

    It is a cost plus environment so most schedules are pretend and job skills are not that necessary.
    Employees often times have to break the rules in order to do their jobs right or get something done. Very nerve wracking. People spend too much energy avoiding decisions and covering their butts.
    Elaborate QA system is not effective and extremely unresponsive to change.
    As a taxpayer it is disheartening to see so much of our money being spent in so many useless ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually start striving for the organizational excellence that is written about in the promotional literature.Focus on developing the worldclass knowledge that will win contracts without having to depend on the regional offsets card.
    At the more nuts and bolts level, switch to having managers and their reports agreeing on SMART goals as the basis for personal evaluations. Both will have a clearer understanding of what it means to do a good job. A job that would end up supporting the aforementioned big picture goals.
    And don't do anything you wouldn't want published in the Globe and Mail.
