    unstable senior management with a lot of strategic projects that create unrest and stress at the workplace and does not really help.

    Employer as a large organization gives the benefit of total exposure in its engineering/ manufacturing environment.

    Pros

    Nice projects. People are easily available when needed. They are always available when needed.There is a lot of opportunity for improvements.

    Cons

    Due to the hierarchy of Bombardier, there is a lot of meetings and reviews for each project.The agenda is very quickly fielded. Also, priorities are changing easily. Need to be very flexible.Lot of approval processes that bring delays.

    Advice to Management

    Since there is no Project Management Office, there is no more standard for the project management practice. Biombardier would get a lot of benefit putting in place a new PMO.
