    Pros

    The administration knew how to motivate it's employees. Advancement was very much a possibility.

    Cons

    Cost of flying is inflated due to Bombardier's near monopoly of heavy maintenance on jet aircraft.

    The pay is good and the people are friendly to work with. This company will make sure you have the tools succeed and the environment to thrive professionally.

    Cons

    Outsourcing has been the major downfall of this industry with layoffs of many people in their later years of their careers. Future projections are shaky due to the unpredictable enconomy.

    Advice to Management

    The methodology of downsizing should be reviewed to ensure that experience is retained in critical areas.

    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people that I worked with in the hangers to build the planes were the best co-workers in the world.

    Cons

    Management forget sometimes who the ones are who really make the company work, the workers on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    I worked in Toronto but I worked with people from all of your plants. I think you should look at the people on the floor, I mean really look at them and realize that they are the reason your company is where it is. And that your product is as good as it is. Remember one thing those people are the reason you are making the money you do. If those people decide to put their tools down and slow down production you will lose money. It is not the people who work in the office or have the fancy titles on the door to their office, it's those people who work really hard to build the best that product.
