    I have been working at PAE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent (Medical, Dental, Vision, Life Insurance, Etc..). Yet each year you seem to have to pay more..

    Cons

    Advancement feels impossible especially after going through 10 interviews. Never get raises. Have to wait at least 6 months to move to different shifts. No appreciation for hard work. Most management have no idea what they're doing. No sick time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire those who actually know how to run a business, show more appreciation towards employees since they're already never getting a raise. Be more honest when it comes to not promoting after interviews for higher positions.
