Working for Learjet
Materials and Processes Engineer for L85 (Former Employee), Wichita, KSJanuary 16, 2015
Pros: benefits, compensation, enjoyed working with my colleagues in m&p
Cons: some deadlines imposed are borderline unrealistic.
With just 2-1/5 years working for the company, I found Learjet to be the best from amongst my previous jobs in terms of compensation, benefits and the potential for learning. Amazing customer experience both internal and external is heavily promoted and it's one aspect that I often hear a lot from my interactions with other departments. As an observer, I could tell that the leadership within this company is trying their best to make the most out the resources available. Although I find some decisions to be a bit questionable, overall I rate this company as a good place to work for.

Great people but poor leadership in BFTC

I worked in the Bombardier Flight Test Center and found the people were awesome to work with. The leadership was more concerned about their personal advancement and egos and less about building a team.
