    Unrealistic goals. Constant change in territories. Management turnover. No clear plan.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of direction leads to poor performance. Stick to goals for more than 1 quarter at a time. Training new hires more closely, this would alleviate pressures from existing employees. Give value to existing employees.

    I worked at CAE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They tell you great things in the beginning...... but just wait.

    Cons

    As soon as you get the job done (even in excellence) they lay-off and hire someone that has no clue what they are doing for half the money.

    Advice to Management

    Get real, credit people for their knowledge and hang on to good people; they will actually help you make money and raise your horrible reputation.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at CAE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great travel opportunities and compensation package. You are provided with everything you need if you work from home.

    Cons

    Mid-level management are lukewarm at best; many have no supervisory experience at all. Company tends to push product to market before beta testing, or market surveying and spends a lot of time trying to fix engineering issues that could have been identified had product not been pushed to market.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to make a silk purse out of sow's ear. A return to METI's core values would serve the company well.
