    Pros

    Benefits and dayshift - some good people (that are left)

    Cons

    Feeling of doom and gloom everywhere- micro management hell. PM walks around worrying about cig butts and who clocked out a minute early . Experience is mass exodus. Good ol boy club and finger pointing is favored

    Advice to Management

    Gut the management!!! Not the people carrying the load!!!

    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is amazing with some great medical benefits! Yearly raises and bonuses have been increasing year over year. Good vacation and personal time off!

    Cons

    After drinking managements koolaid for the past 3 years they are essentially getting rid of everyone to do the same job but with a subpar company (a 3PL).

    Advice to Management

    Learn who actually does the work by getting involved with your employees. Until you care more about employees instead of your bottom dollar you will continue to be a sinking ship.

    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to get experience on Bombardier airframes

    Cons

    Don't expect much training, management changes constantly and policies change even more frequently. Not many opportunities to move up in the short term.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some consistency to employees, pay a competitive salary and support employees instead of attempting to rule over them.

    Pros

    The people. The environment is fun. The place is organized.

    Cons

    Salary people are squeezed to the point of tears. They are also the first to be let go.

    Advice to Management

    stop running the company with your head down. Look up and see what's going on. None of the initiatives implemented were from the bottom up as promised. They were top down.
