Chief Instructor Pilot-Commercial Aircraft (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC23 March 2016
Bombardier is a very large company with multiple opportunities. Although they try the best to make a quality product they sometimes forget the "human" factor.

Worst management team ever
former employee (Former Employee) –  Canada12 June 2013
Great salary and benefits, but the stress of working with this management team is not worth it.
Coworkers were great for the most part but an environment of everybody for himself is definitely being fostered.
Very poor training program.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
inferior training, no guidance

Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 June 2013
Management has hands tied by corporate, difficult for sr. management at this site to make major decisions. Not much help offered to junior management who are promoted. Underperformers are not dealt with (a recurring comment on annual employee survey). Good people leave as not many opportunities for advancement yet high qualifications required for non engineering jobs. Work/life balance talked about but difficult to achieve. At one time I would recommend this employer to friends - but I have not for some time. Much depends on new aircraft program and first flight this year.
Pros
Great colleagues, great products
Cons
Few opportunities available

Senior Consultant - Process Improvement Program (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 March 2015
My typical day at work was very positive due to the nature of my responsibilities, which included the development and delivery of "Change Management" training courses to employees.

Throughout the 5-day training sessions, each class/group of trainees taught me the value of demonstrating and maintaining a positive open-minded approach to change.

Co-workers were very engaged and supportive, which made my job very enjoyable.
Pros
Working in and around the assembly process of builiding an aircraft .
Cons
Long hours.

Methods Agent (Former Employee) –  Mirabel, QC28 September 2015
Working at Bombardier was a wonderful experience. There is much to learn, as it offers many training programs and provides new challenges with every new program it initiates. The co-workers are professionals, who are willing to help each other through the spirit of team work, but also provide a competitive edge with daily challenges. The most enjoyable part of the job is contributing to society by providing state of the art products. Unfortunately, the most difficult part is knowing that such a wonderful company is also subject to a healthy and unhealthy economy.
