Engineer (Former Employee), Toronto – November 27, 2014
Pros: its a paycheck
-New graduates with little to no experience are "promoted" to lead several projects - essentially because they are "yes" men. -Identifying problems and recommending solutions will lead you to be placed in a stagnant area -Work/Life balance does not exist. Bombardier wants your soul -Salary is not commensurate with the responsibilities given -Job security – more... does not exist anywhere, especially at Bombardier -Management are of the form of yes men or bull in a china shop. Very few quality managers left - they have all moved on to seek better opportunities -Job culture: if you have a knife and know how to stab people in the back - you are golden.
Avoid this place if you can. Look at their track record, assess their stock price, assess what their leadership publicly state versus the actions. Bombardier may have been a great place - it is now a toxic toilet, run by the same leaders that bankrupt GM. Don't forget, it is a family owned firm. – less

CL-415 Avionic Engineer Lead Hand / ACA (Current Employee), North Bay Ontario – November 17, 2014
Pros: every day is something new
Cons: very little organization
Working on the only hand build production aircraft in the world has provided more interesting day to day challenges than I ever expected. After producing 50 airplanes, no two have produced the same problems. The people are good to work with.
Team Lead Methods Technician (Current Employee), Thunder Bay – October 29, 2014
There is no typical day here. There is a new challenge every day. There are some great people in some departments. Management is weakly leading the team and the company is quite top-heavy. There is a lack of communication and trust which leads to low morale. The group of people that I work with is excellent and if we could overcome the barriers that – more... prevent us from doing a good job I would gladly work with them for many years to come. – less

Pros: flexible hours, excellent team work.
Cons: peak winter.
Currently working in In-Service Engineering Structures Dept. My work primarily involves engineering support for repairs for Regional Aircrafts (CRJ 200/700/900/1000). The tasks include Static and Damage tolerance/Fatigue Analysis substantiation for the Urgent and AOG repairs.
The group am currently working are very co-operative and share their valuable – more... experience for a result oriented approach towards the task.
My hardest part of the job is I am trying to keep up with my French language skills as the company is Bi-lingual. I understand most of the French meetings and good in short conversations but would like to improve my fluency in French.
The enjoyable part of the job is, the work includes a high volume of repair calls with varying repair issues and there is a great scope to work on the complete structure of an aircraft. The work is fast paced and gives an opportunity to deliver quality performance under pressure. – less
Engineer (Current Employee), Montréal, QC – September 30, 2014
You are not allowed to ask any questions that might point to a problem. Nepotism is seen at a very large scale; HR is not there for the employees, they seem very lost. If you are friends with the boss, then you will just sail through, even if you are a complete incompetent. People with no technical knowledge are leading engineering projects. No training – more... is permitted due to cost containment. Young engineers are not being guided, very sad that they are not challenged. Too many project leads/section chiefs/managers - who's working anymore? This company does not have any culture, employees are just numbers. – less
