    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good. The company matches up to 6% on 401k contributions

    Cons

    There are lots of unnecessary people making insane salaries. Communication is not as good as it should be between departments.

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed what I was hired to do, the pay was good and like many have said the benefits were great.

    Cons

    Toxic environment, bullying was acceptable because the ones doing it were the only ones that knew the aircraft!!! When reports were made to HR nothing was done, everyone played nice and after a few weeks back to the same ole good ole boys club. I watch them give one guy such a hard time he spent 8 hours there and never came back. We damaged aircraft after aircraft with no one being punished or removed from there position.

    Advice to Management

    Millions of dollars of aircraft damage, high turn over rate of techs and support personnel can not be just sweep away by ignoring it. People told you, I told you and you did nothing. Most people are there because they need a job not because they love your company!! I am a 30 plus year aviation processional and I always wanted to work for Bombardier. If you would have removed the toxic environment I would have given you 100 percent and than some!! It is sad that aviation is in the hands of high of people that just don't care as long as they are making big bucks!!!

    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Bombardier is a small company when compared to other aircraft corporations, so it is more of a close family feel than any other company that I've worked with.

    Cons

    There is a lack of formal training for new employees. If an individual is arriving from another airframe or computer system, there is no training in place to expedite the learning process for those individuals.
