    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wages are union negotiated and top notch. Benefits continue to slid at every contract

    Cons

    Management uses good ol boy system when selecting supervisors. New Supervisions attitude is the "beatings will continue until morale improves". The future looks dark due to poor sales of Learjet which is spiralling down and the end is certain. Right to work state "Kansas" takes away the strength of having a union. That's why myself and other inspectors don't join.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the Discrimination against and unfair treatment of workers for poor sales and failure to meet unrealistic goals.

    Pros

    Very Professional team, high energy, skilled teammates.

    Cons

    When the 2.6 B failed program shut down, The production workers that are part of the good old boys club infiltrated the Flight test organization and brought their lackadaisical unprofessional attitude with them. I fully expect major delays in the Global 7&8 thousand flight test program.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    It's the best/biggest aviation company in Tucson. The hangar is climate control and for the most part, you get your allotted hours every week

    Cons

    The 12 hour shifts working on the commercial side. Quality control is lacking with actual experience on the aircraft and it really shows

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive and less reactive when it comes to employee safety and satisfaction. It could be a great place to work if the focus was actually its people

    Pros

    Great people
    Competitive Salary
    Great place to learn about aircraft.
    Good stepping stone in a career path.

    Cons

    Old school mentality & pressure...
    Threats of loosing job, if targets aren't met
    Lack of backing from higher level management
    The company always seems to be in a state of flux and layoffs are often.
    Expectation to work weekends and holidays, including around Christmas on top of regular weekday shift.

    Advice to Management

    Back line managers & unit managers, rather than move a manager for doing his job, because the union workers get upset. The inmates shouldn't be running the place!
