    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at CAE

    Pros

    Stock plan matches 3% which is nice. Wellness reimbursement and corporate events.

    Cons

    Management has no sense of organization or leadership skills. They hire people into roles to keep them in the company even if they aren’t remotely qualified which leads to teams failing. They also cut everyone’s salaries and require a no work for three months for a large amount of employees due to the poor ability to plan for the potential of a disaster. Leadership goes out on long lunches and takes vendor tickets to events.
