    I worked at CAE

    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.

    I have been working at CAE full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some R&D project are fun. Some Snags(Debugging Work) & Project are rewarding and great opporutinity to learn. Open Space, Flexible Hours, Lunch & learn!!!!

    Cons

    --Onboarding & Training is lacking. Losing good new talents. It's more of a trial by Fire. --No STD .The Application Stack is very large and not well documented. It's a transitioning company, it's doing better day by day. ---Parking is hell.

    Advice to Management

    --Pair programming. Mob Programming. Rubber Duck Debugging. To supplement Code review. Basically, more ''team work'' at start to create a good footing for new assignee. --Review tasks and make a formal procedure for some of them. People need some footing. Not every task should be a new research subject. --Parking problem could be fixed by offcampus sites. -- More than 1 SME/ Ressource.
