I have been working at CAE full-time (more than an year)

Pros

You get to work on full flight simulators which is very cool. Learn a lot. Casual work culture, friendly/helpful coworkers. Good benefits.

Cons

Not encouraged to work on different systems. They want you to become an expert at one thing and never give you a chance to see more. Management is not the best.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Worry less about budget, get your engineers what they need.

    I worked at CAE full-time

    Pros

    Many interesting projects, great place for new grads. Overtime is paid, flexible time schedules, possibilities to go on business trips.

    Cons

    Employees talk constantly against each other, management encourages this by hailing heroes, who are mostly patchers of code. Very little structure about how the work should proceed. Business trips may become a curse for some workers, who may ended up spending more than 50% of their time abroad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start thinking about improving the work atmosphere. There should be ways to organize projects so that their progress can be monitored. It would be important to have a structured series of tests to validate all interfaces. Stop thinking that juniors can do everything and that past experience accounts for nothing.
