    Pros

    The team environment was great as was the systems group. The corporate shuttle for meetings in Canada isn't too bad

    Cons

    Management drove the project into the ground. No trust in engineers nor changes accepted to better the product

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers and trust them. Pay your suppliers so that they don't stop working.

    Pros

    The company has people that are great at their job. Engineers, Project Integrators, Supply Chain, all want to get the job done and do it the right way. Most managers will make efforts to make sure you have what you need to do your job. Managers take the feedback in surveys very seriously and make efforts to improve what they have control over. There is a team atmosphere at the working level across all platforms and job descriptions of genuine caring for one another. The company has great processes, but at the Learjet site, they never staffed accordingly to follow those procedural requirements.

    Cons

    Upper level management dumps many of their issues (especially those that come out of annual surveys) on their managers. Many of those issues are not within the control of those managers. The company made some questionable decisions in the methods of construction of its new business jet. They also over extended financial resources on too many concurrent programs.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of asking people that come to you to solve problems out of their control, take a genuine interest in our employees.

    Pros

    Enjoyed most of the people I worked with. Bobmardier's overall benefits package is pretty good.

    Cons

    Poor management on the Learjet 85 program. Many of the managers lack professional, personal, and communication skills that is typical for the position. Morale was bad, working environment was poor. No clear direction of program, always working under lies and misinformation - terrible environment to work in.

    Pros

    The company has a lot of work to do with the new L85 Program. take the ball and run comes to mind. If you want something you are empowered to go out and get it.

    Cons

    There seems to be no one with their "arms around" the entire program. We ae not all on the same page. There is a lot of extra work beinf done that doesn'e need to be.


  11. Exciting and challenging environment. You will learn a lot.
