    I have been working at CAE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Very convenient location. Planes are well kept. Great health benefits. Management at the corporate level are very engaged.

    Cons

    The local management work against each other to try to get ahead at another's expense. This has gone on for some time now and the staff has to suffer for it. Budget cuts, layoffs and replacing experience for cheap labor have been the norms as of late.

    Advice to Management

    Restructuring the corporate ladder by completely separating the repair station and flight school will lay out key groundwork to get this flight school rolling again.

    I worked at CAE full-time

    Pros

    Just a place to get a paycheck.

    Cons

    Management from middle management fears for the jobs from the Dallas based management.
    Treat employees very, very poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Management lives in the dark ages. It's time they moved into the current times.

    They have no respect for their employees and treat their employees like pieces of replaceable machinery. Unless you are a 100% "yes" man, don't bother working here. Instead of providing employees with incentives to perform well, the management at CAE works through fear tactics and intimidation.
    Management should learn that positive motivation works far better than negative.
