Disorganized and lack of leadership
Methods engineer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 January 2017
Bombardier is a disorganized company with a huge lack of leadership and management. Employees expend 75% of the day in meanginless meetings with no clarity on goals and objectives. The lack of strategical busniness vision is also present. Middle and high level managers do not even provide their team with the right support, guidance, and resources. I would never work in Bombardier again. Frustrating experience!

Productive et agréable à travailler
Analyste de processus et besoins d'affaires(PLMBP) (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC28 December 2016
Très bonne entreprise ou les opportunitées d'ajouter des cordes à son arc et de développer son plein potentiel étaient présentes. Très respectueuse de ses employés. Bonne culture d'entreprise. L'ambiance de travail avec ses colègues est très agréable. N'hésite pas à donner de la formation. Beaucoup d'opportunités pour appliquer sur d'autres postes à l'interne.
Pros
Beaucoup d'opportunités

Not a good company to work for
Project Management (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 December 2016
- Lots of disorganization. No clarity of job responsibilities
- Executives are action oriented, they don't take time to assess solution options and to assess risk. They make spontaneous decisions with unrealistic deadlines or logic and stress all workers out!
-No on-job training upon hiring
- Very bad culture. Lots of finger pointing, screaming, rudeness
- Lots of stress and pressure
- Most people are demotivated
- Advice: Think a lot before deciding to to work for Bombardier, especially Global 7000/8000 program since its development and is full of bad management practices.
Pros
good salary, good benefits
Cons
no training upon hiring, no clear responsibility, lots of process overlap between departments, lots of rudeness and unprofessional manners, negative culture

Over all good place to work
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON24 October 2016
All days went by quite fast, always trouble in work pace somewhere that needed help . You need a lot of patience when dealing with hundreds of different personalities My co-workers became good friends. hardest part of job was tying not to get upset with other employees who just did not care if job was not right as long as they got a paycheck . satisfaction of see my ideas put to use and saving time and money was a bonus. This also gave me the ability and knowledge that I build my own home
Pros
allways something new to do job was never boring
Cons
managment did not seem to want to listion to people with years of experance

Large global company with growth opportunities
SR Financial Analyst, Controlling (Current Employee) –  Dorval, QC15 January 2017
Bombardier has a very fast paced, constantly changing work environment. Sometimes, it can feel like it's changing faster than the culture is ready for. There is no shortage of work to go around for employees able to autonomously lead and face challenges head on.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
high turnover of employees

Not many work pressure
Operateur de machine (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC19 September 2016
You start with a briefing about the company news/work. You will learn how to take your time when doing your job. The management is, mostly, based on procedure. your co-worker will help you when you need or they will ask you for assistance. The hardest part can't perform other task even when you have the skill for. You will enjoy the mostly stress-free environment.
Pros
No stress at all
Cons
Long time for waiting

Ambitious company thats currently too thin
SENIOR ANALYST (Aftermarket Sales) (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC14 November 2016
Great company certainly moving in the right direction however the work life balance just isn't in the company mindset. Depending on the department, working late is an expectation, not an exception.
Pros
Great benefits & pay, international experience
Cons

Bombardier is a phenominal place to work.
Stress Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 August 2016
Bombardier I rate at the same level as Boeing. I love the company and the people. Bombardier really cares about their products quality and their customers. It is a shame that lately they have had financial issues due to they delays in their latest models. Like Boeing, Bombardier knows how to build a great airplane and how long it should take. The people at Bombardier welcome you and are very kind. Management is just first rate. I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to work for Bombardier. I sincerely hope that they can put their financial troubles behind them so I can one day go back and work for them.
Pros
To many to list.
Cons
I honestly can't think of any.

Terrible management
Program Manager - Contract Management - NetJets (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC27 September 2016
With very good talent having departed the company in the past 3-5 years, many management roles and been filled by managers and directors with little to no vision and who are in no way qualified to lead large scale teams.
Pros
Company reputation
Cons
Middle management, politics, lack of HR support, cash constraints.

Unstable workplace
Analyste Sr, Business Système, IT (Current Employee) –  Ville Ste. Laurent, QC7 September 2016
The day to day is unstable as Bombardier is going through a rought time. Work environment is good. Working with Change Management and Gouvernance of multiple accounts + in charge of the Telecom Finance budget for IT Infrastructure.

The Change Mnagement is the most enjoyable part of my work. The finance portion is the hardest but learning every day.

Big challenges with great rewards
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC2 August 2016
Great company with great leaders even under difficult times.
Many challenges to accomplish especially since the CSeries and new Global Line were to be put into production.
Synergy is felt trough team members and is the principal reason why people come to work every morning!
I've learned that without keeping an eye on the big picture, failure can quickly knock on your door.
In such a big company, the hardest thing was to bring quick amelioration and progress due to heavy bureaucracy resulting in lenthy decisions time frames.
Pros
Great benefits

great employees to work with
Senior Systems Analyst (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC14 August 2016
The best part of the job has been the great people I work with.
However bad strategic decisions and market conditions have caused extensive cost cutting measures to be put in force which are jeopardizing the retention of knowledgeable and loyal employees to leave or be let go.
