Great compensation and benefits; volatile work environment
Customer Service Representative / Buyer (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSJanuary 7, 2012
Bombardier is a great place to work for a person who can handle the stress of a volatile work environment. While employed at Bombardier, I several lay-offs in many different departments. However, the compensation and benefits were what made it difficult to leave the company.
Pros
great compensation and benefits
Cons
volatile work environment

STAFF ASSISTANT / INVOICE ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMay 22, 2013
This is a great company to work for. Job security is great and benefits are out of this world. If you have an opportunity to work for them, keep it. Although, the pay is not so great, but the benefits talks for itself and time off you can accrue.

Not a good place to work
A & P Mechanic / Delegate Inspector (Former Employee) –  Bridgeport, WVJuly 20, 2015
Management is no good, HR department won't listen to your problems about the management and they go right back to management to tell on you. Training Dept. is worthless, you go to a class that supposed to take 4 - 6 hours to complete and the Lead Instructor has it done in 30-40 minutes and you still have not learned nothing. Bombardier is not a very good place to work for in my opinion.
Pros
none
