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

    Pros

    Work-life balance was good, decent wages, good benefits and awesome people (you won't find better co-workers)

    Cons

    Promotions aren't so much based on skill (in the area I worked in anyway), but solely by how long you've been at the company so going above and beyond takes a long time to be recognized unfortunately. Leadership, in the area I worked in, was non-existent from the supervisor level up to the director level. Fortunately, that is not in every area though.

    Advice to Management

    I can only speak for the leadership I had during my time there. Ongoing leadership training and guidance could help the leadership at all levels at Bombardier. They should also re-think their promotion structure. It doesn't help productivity.
