    I have been working at CAE full-time

    Pros

    The company as a whole is a good company to work for. They do reward you for a Job well done. I like to work, it is a fast paced environment, but they treat you fairly well.

    Cons

    some managers are put into positions simply because of the education. They dont have any real exp in managing people. Some people are hard to work with. The turnover is high, mainly because out of all of the employers in the defense industry, they are lagging behind in the Salary Category.

    Advice to Management

    Hold on to the good ones, and get rid of the ones who are not doing their jobs. They have a habit of repeating the same mistakes over and over again. That is why the High Turnover rate exist. A lot of managers are in the job they are for the wrong reason.

    Pros

    The attitude is extremely relaxed. Very flexible hours and working requirements. Easy to excel if you are a decent employee. Good people.

    Cons

    No training. No R&D budget. Budgets get cut all the time. Unrealistic scheduled. Some incompetence will cause everyone to miss schedule it go over budget. Constantly get forced into adhering to policies that work in parent company, but make no sense in Tampa office. If you do one thing well, you will likely be assigned to all projects that need help in that area.
