    Pros

    Good pay for the work you do.

    Cons

    Terrible project managers and crew leads that will try to put your license at risk to save time by throwing out paperwork or asking to reuse packings or installing bad parts.
    Not enough tooling and poor condition GSE.
    Never have parts or consumables to finish a job.
    Horrible paperwork and parts ordering system.
    Too much emphasis on time and not quality.
     If you are going to work here stand your ground when people ask you to do something you are not comfortable with, you only have one license.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new paperwork system that protect the worker doing the task. Instead of buying unnecessary things, start buying more basic tooling and consumables. Start to weed out the old school workers and start getting talent. Start teaching new mechanics instead of throwing them into the fire.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    No lack of work for 2017. Compensation is average to above average. Many projects are running concurrently at this point.

    Cons

    Unorganized and inefficient. Prompts people that are perceived to be high quality. Compensation for employees has been continuously reduced, no matching of company stocks, no per diem any more for those that travel.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and accept employee input. Many managers might have been good employees but are inadequately prepared to manage people and or projects. Don't be afraid to reverse decisions that are shown to be bad.

    Pros

    Benefits, big company, nice people

    Cons

    They do not care how long you have been with the company, if they need to make cuts and your the head in that department, you will be let go. There is no effort to utilize your company knowledge in another department. I have never seen them resource their people correctly unless you are at their corporate office in Montreal. Good luck! Bombardier is an unstable company at the moment due to Failure to launch their C-Series by 8 years.

    Advice to Management

    Would not be constructively utilized. The Cons point out the short comings..

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the employees happy and they'll keep the company competitive and well in the black.
