Pros

Friendly work environment
Good benefits - 401K w/ matching, health, dental, vision, life insurance, temp disability, etc...
Hours are flexible
Dress code is relaxed - jeans, polo, and sneakers

Cons

Pay-scale is lower than average
Management is unable to balance project workflow - lead to recent layoffs
Product is old and needs revamping - functionality is good but could be made to be better if they would walk away from VB6.

    Pros

    Its a job in a poor economy. The coworkers were truly a blast. Good workers poor managers and poor wage/

    Cons

    hours, pay, management were all a joke. They provide no feedback, or training. They take advantage of employees and the poor economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. Split the shifts. Provide feedback. Allow employees their legal breaks. Work with employees to become better.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Budapest (Hungary)

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

    Pros

    - The new Hungarian office is very beautiful. It was developed according to the wish of the employees
    - Some of the colleagues are exceptionally good at their profession
    - Interesting (in the good sense) events and education possibilities like English Fridays, party every Friday nights, etc.
    - Very friendly local management
    - The local management is open for the new ideas
    - Permanent foreign colleagues in the Hungarian office
    - Interesting work (Civil and Military airplanes/simulations)
    - "Google like things": Inspiration rooms, library, basketball, csocso, etc.
    - Flexible working hours
    - Competitive salary
    - It grows fast with a lot of promotional opportunity
    - A lot of opportunity for traveling worldwide (Canada, Germany, UK, Dubai, Australia etc)

    Cons

    - Most of the employees are young, there are no developers with ~30 years experience: missing accumulated experience in software engineering (you can count it as a Pros too)
    - The management is open and friendly, but not experienced. They learn much but their are overloaded (I think it is just a temporary issue)
    - Not too much girl thus/and some very strange and inappropriate/insulting jokes
    - The mother company cannot see the Pros and sometimes makes the positive change harder than necessary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Try to lower your load, e.g. build an appropriate middle/lower management layer
    - Think in teams, not persons
    - Seriously consider to take something against the "strange and inappropriate/insulting jokes". It comes from the past and some of the employees are following it just by habit. It can hurt feelings and in extreme cases it can hurt the company too.
    - Keep it up! :)
