Good potential to learn, but has management issues

Materials and Processes Engineer (Current Employee)
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIntegrated team environment helps employees to interact between various functions and learn a lot more. Benefits are good compared to the local marketplace. Good work-life balance.

ConsLack of fairness in management. Dedicated and delivering employees are not appreciated unless you're "friend" with the management. Lots of office politics which is frustrating at times. Difficult to grow even if the performance is beyond expectations. There is always an excuse when it comes to promotion. HR is working for managers only.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair to your employees and appreciate and nurture the good work of those who are dedicated.

Great company - many great people

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLarge variety of projects from small business jets to mainline commercial aircraft. Engineering team is qualified and motivated. If (but only if) you take your career in your own hands you can progress quickly.

ConsLack of good communication between business units/departments. Budget constraints prevents many much needed software and hardware upgrades. Company that sometimes is forced to respond to the market rather than leading it so technical innovation is not always put first.

Learjet is part of the Bombardier family of aircraft, which means at learjet you have the security of a large company.

Instrumentation (Former Employee)
Wichita, KS (US)

I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time for less than a year

ProsThe knowledge that you are building the finest aircraft in the world. Good benefits. Has great job advancement opportunities.

ConsAs a direct employee, it is a pretty good employer. As a contractor they treat you as though they own you. As your always on the verge of loosing your job.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet your people do their jobs. I was very disapponited in the management. I was not impressed with how my working hours changed almost every day. They were constantly changing people to different shifts for no apparent reason.

Great place to intern and get involved in aerospace industry.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Bombardier Aerospace as an intern for less than a year

Pros- Fast learning experience and great colleagues
- CSeries gives big picture overview of starting a new aircraft program - allows you to absorb a lot of information very quickly about a large, complex industry
- Routine meetings to keep team cohesive and aware
- Very understanding manager

Cons- Summer interns do not always have work, and not given much attention when everyone else has work; managers seemed overloaded with work
- Could be given more defined tasks
- Cash containment measure in place makes it hard for interns to transition to full-time

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
