    A very impersonal place to work

    Engineer (Former Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsThe work is interesting, peers are helpful, everyone is proud of the simulator products, and balance of personal time to overtime.

    ConsManagers don't talk to subordinates. In one experience, the manager of a group of 20 did not even know the names of the people that were reporting to him/her. The managers were in a world of their own, summarizing the work of the staff, and rarely leaving their office. except to report to their own manager.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDump the attitude problems. Equipment does not make a great company, but the people, the engineering staff, and the workers. Many employees were excluded from meetings because of not having a university degree, and the day after the employee graduated, he was admitted to meetings.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Absolutely best as a best job!

    Integration Specialist (Current Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsGreat Travel opportunities with deployment department, you can see the world! Paid overtime and great coworkers!

    ConsWell, you can burn out, 12 hours shifts in field is a norm. Recent hold backs in Engineering hiring are worrisome. It is very hard to grow, very flat org structure does not provide a lot of ways up. Lots of ways to move laterally though.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGuys, get your hiring right, people are overloaded.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Very good experience!

    Simulation Software Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsYoung spirit with young people who want thing (project) to move.
    On the edge of the technologie.
    Not very structure but the company can turn on a dime.

    ConsSince the pyramid of management is a maximum of three levels: You, your boss and the president of the company. Don't think to move high in the hierarchic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare and promote strategy with employee base. Motivate by offering incetives in return for hard work and contributions to bottom line.

    Challenges

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsCAE is a great place to be technically challenged, learn a lot in a very short time and to be given high responsibilities.

    ConsCAE is often trying to do to many things for the resources they have. This lead to engineers being assigned to too many projects at the same time which is not always very efficient.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore engineers should be hired to sustain the work load and ensure a better future without burning out the current team.

    Aerospace Industry

    Customer Service Administrator (Former Employee) Saint-Laurent, QC (Canada)

    Prosgood people / satisfactory working environment / flexable working hours / flexable vacation periods / time off when necessary / location

    ConsEmployee must be in the bosses pocket if there is any room for advancement within the department. Also, the employer is notorious for rumors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should be more honest when revealing their quarterly stats. Back in Nov 08, after receiving grants from the Federal government, management stated that the work will definately increase for 2009. In May 09, there were layoffs.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
