    I have been working at CAE as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great mood, low average age so it is really dynamic and projects are really interesting and different from one another.

    Cons

    There is a lot to learn. Not complicated things, but a lot of systems with a lot of variables and differences over their iterations.

    Advice to Management

    I'd say to keep it that way! The business/project structure seems to be well studied and feels really efficient. The backlog seems to be overloaded though, maybe hire more to be sure not to lose contracts.
