    Pros

    The company is a good place to work with competative salaries for the local area and generous benefits. At the flight test center you get to work on the actual aircraft and not just a small part or a computer model, which is very exciting. We also work on numerous aircraft types throughout the year, so there is always something new to learn.

    Cons

    Wichita is a small mid-west town, so while house prices are low the options for entertainment and eating out can be limited. Having said that, there is limited access to music and theater and the city is still expanding slowly.

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

    Pros

    Operators were well trained, hard working and eager to improve. Workmanship and skill of operators were excellent. Support groups and mid level leaders and/or supervisors were extremely cooperative and goal oriented.

    Cons

    Systems & processes are outdated. Organization is extremely reactive in all aspects. Vision and mission are not clearly communicated from the top level managers. Senior leadership from Canada not engaged enough to understand actual situation in Wichita. Seems to be lack of support from Canadian leadership due to focus on C-Series and Global Series aircraft.

    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow and advance. Variety of different aircraft to work on. I would recommend the commercial dept because of the opportunity for overtime

    Cons

    There are lots of non-certified technicians on the floor that need someone to sign behind them. Even through they are the manufacturer of the aircraft, there is little expertise on the floor regarding the maintenance.
