    Pros

    None that come to mind

    Cons

    Blatant bias pro women. Women are hired/promoted/get signiifcant pay rises. Others get nothing. Job protection for those in the circle despite utter incompetence. Everything done cheap. No interest in quality. Safety not taken seriously. Trainsmash waiting to happen. Staff leaving a sinking ship. Then add the repetive comments of others which are accurate Upper management does not listen" (in 39 reviews) "They are always understaffed leading to poor work life balance" (in 18 reviews) "Work very long hours; underpaid for amount of responsibilities" (in 18 reviews) "Big company, but otherwise none" (in 14 reviews) "Poor management who lacks expertise" (in 13 reviews) High Pressure Environment and Lack of Training Cons The management, a waste of space Advice to Management Some sort of amusing suicidal pastime perhaps? Toxic and non compliant working culture Cons Stay well away. There is no respect from management to their employees. Run by fear with zero consideration for their customers. Customers only return as CAE have a monopoly. Money is terrible and moral is non-existent. Only apply if you have no other choice Heavily centralized operations from Montreal which often has a negative impact on local operations and employee morale Cons If you are in the right click you will be fine if not there is no chance of promotion or getting on Long working hours In general poor management skills Bullying culture
