Manager (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 8 January 2019
Ample opportunity to learn multiple elements of the business at the Peterborough location - small, close-knit bunch of "lifers" (most people have been here for 15 years++). Good benefits, pension, paid time off. Salaries are a bit off the mark, even for Peterborough - but they appear to be working towards changing that. A lot of managers, not a lot of leaders. Relaxed culture, but reactionary - not an abundance of forethought/vision. Overall, a decent employer with opportunities to move around within the organization (locally and internationaly).
Excellent Company. Forward-thinking; Committed to its Workforce.
Supplier Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 15 May 2018
Safran has earned its reputation as one of the leading aerospace organizations, through its commitment to core values... primarily: Customer Satisfaction. I very much enjoyed my 23 1/2 years there, and am grateful for the friends I met, the things I learned, and the opportunities I was afforded. (Also... the Stock Purchase Plan available to employees was a great bonus!)
I find my current position fulfilling, but I am open to considering other possible career options
Team Leader/ Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Ajax, ON – 4 May 2018
Safran has been an excellent, very supportive employer. I would recommend Safran to anyone, considering the company as a potential employer. The experience I have had with Safran has been positive and rewarding
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 7 January 2018
Interesting job and industry along with international exposure. Job can be great or average depending of the direct management (mix of local and out of country management) which is often causing competing priorities and change of directions. Limited opportunities locally.
International aspect, complexity, lots to learn, friday pm off
Special Process Quality Engineering Specialist (Current Employee) – Ajax, ON – 26 April 2017
Safran is an interesting place to work. It has opportunity for many people to excel. There are certain areas which improvement is required. As with every place, you will be involved with different personalities and management styles. Standardization is something that is not fully present in the company but they have been working towards it.
Mechanical Volunteering Engineer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 October 2016

Cooperative Education Student (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 2 May 2016
Did a cooperative placement for my program at Durham College.
I was provided the opportunity to work on an inventory improvement project in which I had a large impact, and was able to fully apply much of my knowledge from my Operations Management program.
The people at MBD are friendly and the environment they foster is one of improvement and quality. I was very fortunate to have an absolute pleasure of working with the people I did, and would recommend Messier as an employer without a doubt.
Salary/Benefits and Job Security/Advancement get a 3, as it was unpaid and I am unsure about either of those.

Program Management Coordinator (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 14 February 2016
It was enjoyable working at Messier. I had nice colleagues and a good manager. It felt like it was a bit slow there sometime though; I don't think it's a place where you're constantly being challenged and pushed to grow.
