    I worked at CAE USA

    Pros

    1. Pay is marginally higher than their competitors.
    2. Decent benefits package.
    3. Paid week off between Christmas and new years.

    Cons

    1. Good ol' boy network in terms of management.
    2. People are not promoted based on competence. Most of the people who became leads and managers previously had no experience in their respective fields, and were hired because of who they knew, or because they were related to somebody in the military. This in turn set the template for bad decisions throughout time. It was so bad some people who were hired failed the competency exam which should've been grounds for automatic disqualification.
    3. Zero transparency regarding managerial decisions.
    4. Apathetic Management.
    4. Miniscule raises, even with decent performance reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your awful managers who have been there for the past few years. You know who they are, and despite the "overhaul" from the people in Tampa, they are all still there! The fact that certain people still have "VP" attached to their name after being responsible for losing a BIG contract is a sign the rabbit hole is deeper than it appears. CAE USA in Orlando has earned a bad reputation in the defense contract industry locally for good reason. If they are to have any chance in the future in winning big contracts, they must terminate every single upper level manager responsible. Their decisions resulted in the layoff of over 100 people.
