    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Bombardier full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people who can and will pull together in times of need and peaks of projects Great work life balance if you have the right manager Products to be proud of Last local manufacturer of e2e vehicles in australia Some highly capable people across the organisation Pockets of greatness Slight improvement in the concept of IS - poor execution

    Cons

    substandard systems and ridiculous levels of administration that services no purpose but to waste productivity hours Procurement and AP process is utterly ridiculous Burning out high performers and driving them away Not using internal employees to do continuous improvement leads to lost ideas and creativity Lack of clear strategic direction that is burning up any brand power that was once a positive Far too hierarchical and dictatorial Always cutting costs in free cash flow which isn’t actually saving any money or becoming sustainable Too much “dead wood”, turn over target aimed at total population and not performance No benefits for high performing employees and constantly moving the rem goal posts Stop reducing headcount before you have improved your systems and processes Leaders need to manage up more instead of down

    I have been working at Bombardier full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot to learn, nice colleagues

    Cons

    Not organised, bad management (not doing their work or arrogant) No technical training AT ALL No career plan Horrible HR Poor salary and conditions, no recognition I did a mistake when coming to BT. I don't recommend anyone to come here. I'm just waiting to get enough experience then run away to a better place to grow.
