    I worked at CAE Simuflite full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cae has some nice managers that make the employees feel better. That does not fix the systematic organisational problems and the corporate culture of only looking at the bottom line.

    Cons

    All instructors are on call 5 days a week (24/5). Do not plan anything during those days as your schedule might change several times a day! Be prepared to work on your off days in addition being forced to work "double days". That means working close to 16 hour shifts if they are short on Instructors... That is the problem. they are always short on Instructors. The new work rule states they will not force Instructors to work more than a 16hr day! Nice rule! They pay far less than Flight Safety and the benefits are below industry standards. This is as low and disorganized as you will find. Dont be fooled by the contract they show you. You will very hard for your salary. Actually you will not have time for anything else! work/sleep. Be aware and do not sign a lock in contract if you are smart. Most employees leave as soon as the contract is completed.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your instructors the way Flight Safety and other Aviation Training Centers do. Stop the always setting the bar as low as possible when it comes to pay, benefits and quality of life.

    Pros

    Tenured and passionate workforce; believes in delivering best customer training experience.

    Cons

    Little to no leadership development; penny wise and pound foolish - decisions are made quarter to quarter without regard to what is best in the long term.

    Advice to Management

    Develop supervisors and above continuously; do not delay key decisions just to make the quarterly financial goals.
