    An amazing learning experience

    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace as an intern

    Pros

    Thoroughly enjoyed working with the In-Service Engineering Structures team. Great place to work with a very supportive and co-operative team.

    Cons

    IT issues. Computers are not always the best and IT response is slow.
    No civic holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a very fast paced working environment at Bombardier. Be ready to experience a steep learning curve and put in a lot of hard work.

    Pros

    Interesting field. Always busy. Depending on the management career growth can happen fast or never happen at all.

    Cons

    Company grinds people. Huge company = inconsistent management practices. Lots of under performers are constantly overlooked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start applying 21 century management practices (flexibility, wok/life balance etc.)

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salaries and working conditions are pretty good. Amazing products to work on. The company talks a good game about employee engagement, but doesn't necessarily deliver on it when it matters most. There are many talented people at Bombardier, it is a great place to meet friends and contacts for the rest of your working life (if you choose not to stay forever - which some do).

    Cons

    The company is good when it could have been great, and rising in the company is not always based on merit. But then where is it, really? The senior management is mixed, however some recent leadership decisions at the top (view share price for evidence) have been terrible, indicating lack of planning and strategy. Using politics to get ahead is common.

    Pros

    The company makes great products and relocating to different states or countries is definitely an option after the first year.

    Cons

    Human resources department seems to be getting more and more corrupt throughout the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring people based on ability not based on them being your friend or not.

    Pros

    Interesting experience, I've learned a lot during my job. Good salary, great benefits. Vacation time and sick time are to be appreciated.

    Cons

    Overtime not allowed anymore, not always a stable job, your are not allowed to say what you think in too many occasions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening to the employees more often and try to follow their ideas from time to time. Communication and transparency should be improved.
