    Pros

    I met some really good people working here, I also bump into old and current CAE employees often in the city. Many of my friends and acquaintances in the area I met through CAE. The ex-employees have a tight group who stick together.

    Cons

    No job stability or security. People fired every month. Since most everyone is scared of losing their job, they don't think about the long term, and they are miserable. The life really gets sucked out of employees, and fast. Very few people even make it past a year. Turn over seems higher than the people who stay. It's an equal mix of decent and top performers leaving. Even top execs and salespeople making big bucks bail or get pushed out.

    Advice to Management

    You've recruited some talented people. Treat them well, encourage a professional atmosphere, and try not to make everyone so miserable and angry.
