    Pros

    CAE has excellent growth opportunities in numerous areas. They are well positioned to weather difficult economic times as the blend of civil aviation, military and professional services allows strong sectors to compensate for weakness in others.
    Upper levels actively work to keep employees informed about the state of the company. Management displays sincere regard for the well-being of employees, and career growth is frequently discussed. Performance reviews are annual and personalized, with relatively concrete and attainable targets.
    Global, innovative and well-managed, there's a reason CAE was awarded one of Canada's top 100 employers for the last two years straight.

    Cons

    Some departments may experience a lot of (fully compensated) overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    Overtime is paid. Travel time is paid. Bank Overtime to convert to vacation. Medical is covered [flexible plans to suit single/married]. Travel is the best part about the job, everything from air ticket, to food to stay is taken care of.

    Cons

    Like every big company, it will take you time to get noticed and move up the ladder. A great start to career but wise to move out later.

    Advice to Management

    Instabilities.
