This company did not addapt to the new market and is struggling to re-organise. The people that work there are great and most customers seems to be happy with the product, but there is major project delays, and lot of quality issues that need to be adressed. It is however a good place to learn and will forge your caracter.

Largest Aerospace employer
Materials & Processes Engineer (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC14 April 2017
Being a large company, Bombardier offers jobs and experiences in a large variety of fields and specialties.
Ever since the economic downturn and restructuring, employee engagement and enablement became much less important.
There is some bullying in workplace.
The job pays well and the benefits are also good.

Company culture not followed by management
Airworthiness Specialist CSeries (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC11 April 2017
Bombardier provides good benefits but the management does not "walk the talk" when it comes to company culture. Many departments especially on development programs are very high stress with little recognition or compensation for your efforts. All of my direct managers have been very good but this is not the case across the board.
Pros
Good benefits, many locations in Montreal (depending on your department)
Cons
High expectations to do more and stay long hours.
