    Pros

    PAE hires the best.Great benefits.

    Cons

    Safety at PAE has no say so. The department has no teeth. Our department is very weak and we are at times not kept in the loop. Pay is below industry average

    Pros

    Fairly small company. Not too many layers of management, so easier to get things done. Usually easy to find the right point of contact when you need something.

    Cons

    They are growing a lot - buying out a lot of other companies right now, but don't really have the employee transition processes worked out completely.

    Pros

    Easy to get time off. Good hours. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    PAE is geared toward military retirees more so than a veteran who didn't stick it out until retirement. Because they are so lenient in allowing time off, those with other income, like military retirement pay or military disability income, tend to take advantage of the system and all others pull the work load.

    Advice to Management

    It should not be so easy to not show up for work.

    Pros

    Able to gain experience from a active training base.

    Cons

    This site has a high turn over rate.. Thats why you are looking here.Don't work here if you value your career at all. Small company buys big company thinking it can turn things around. The contract is only for 3 years. Good luck saving with at $27.00hr salary in CA..You will have to commute(expect $500 plus in monthly fuel cost.)

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your contract while you can...Someone else will take over soon.

    Pros

    Assisted with claim review for September 11th Victims Compensation Fund.
    The work actually helped really sick and disabled people. That is the only reason for the two stars.

    Cons

    Idiots are the first promoted. Then, the power goes to their head and they're allowed to berate everyone beneath them.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the supervisors! Start over immediately.
