      Pros

      - We were given the whole year's vacation at the beginning of the year rather than waiting for it to accrue - Nice referral bonus if you get someone to come and stay a little while - Get to use up to 12 floating holidays and a few freebies

      Cons

      Boy are there a lot of these: - No room to move up, at all - Boss has told us we do not get promotions period - Pays much less than the average for the field ex: I work with several people that make more than me and don't have a degree, I have an engineering degree - Will not negotiate offered pay at hiring, it's take it or leave it - More or less ignored by HQ because of the isolation at NM site - No training offered

      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.

      Awful Place to Work

      Pros

      Benefits were very good. Pay rate was decent.

      Cons

      I don't normally have any issues with employers. However, working at this employer was almost like a Dr. Jekyll/Mr Hyde situation. Throughout the interview process, this employer seemed like a dream-employer. It was almost like the new Google or the new Facebook. However, once you started there, they were not very welcoming of new employees. There was absolutely no orientation, no training, and no building mechanisms. New employees were left to their own defenses. The HR team was disengaged, uninvolved, and overall rude. The production team had unqualified managers. There were favorites who got away with things while others were held to more strict standards. Temporary workers were promised the world and then dismissed one or two days before their 90 day term for any small imperfection.

      Little pros. To many Cons. Keep looking.

      Pros

      Some of the most brilliant people I have ever worked with. With all the things wrong these people really know how to work well together and keep pushing on. Almost always guaranteed 40 +hours a week. Insurance and benefits are ok There is a shift differential. The skills you learn here is wide range and looks great on a resume. Great extra holiday time off.

      Cons

      Promotions is a joke. Raises and promotions needs to be overhauled. Continued loss of skilled employees because of this. Be prepared to have your work/life taken off balance. Every year's benefits cost more and company continues to contribute less. Any promotion or raises from the previous year basically counter balances this. Even if you work your butt off and out perform on their non-sense metrics that you are held to. Reviews are based on just non-sense. Things that are out of your control will always haunt you when they do them. Cut back on 401k contributions. No training. All on the job and learn as you go. No bonus of any kind beside over time. The most skilled and valuable employees continue to leave or get fired, which makes it hard to gain proper knowledge of the devices. Be prepared to spend time on your own to learn. Management have no interest in personal growth. Constant favoritism and blatant ignorance of employee's struggle had almost killed the morale and started to become a toxic environment to work in. You will be pushed to work outside of your job description in all kinds of ways. Not in a good way. Human Resources had worked so many people over that everyone has no trust in them. Company finally did a company wide survey for the first time only to find how truly dissatisfied most employees are. Complains will fall on management's deaf ears and can even get you fired. No direction. Everything the company has done is only reactive. When the company actually tries to compensate they always miss the mark. If you want to work in another area and somehow do get the position. Be prepared to do both jobs. The previous job and the one you got moved to. This is for the fact that there aren't enough people to do the jobs individually.

      Worst place I have ever worked

      Pros

      Interesting industry, pay is what you would expect

      Cons

      No training given whatsoever. General ‘blame’ mentality by management. Management don’t have time for staff so major issues are not addressed. Very unprofessional as private and confidential information is shared widely. A lot of preferential treatment is given to particular manners of staff whilst others are completely neglected. No care from HR is the slightest, they will find any reason to get rid of you should you put a toe out of line.

      Bad experience, but I needed the pay check

      Aug 13, 2014 - Systems Software Specialist in Montreal, QC

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pay check. Travel (if you're selected or suck up to the right person) Some easy posiitons like Test Engineer. Unfortunately, I was not one of them.

      Cons

      I was employed with the company for 3.5 years, relocated to Montreal from outside the province. In those 3.5 years, I can say the only good thing that came from that time and effort was the compensation. Most of the people working there are nasty. Backstabbing based on your origin, ethnicity or abilities is very common. The group leaders are completely useless, providing no training or any kind of leadership despite the title, they seem to have a practised deflection technique when you ask for help. Engineering managers do not care about either the product or problems attached. The only time I heard from one was when a problem (read: hurting the budget) was dumped on me. And then it was only to put pressure to resolve the issue, not help. The guy who dumped it on me was getting rid of it because he was feeling that pressure previously. This type of scenario is very common, leading to fighting/stress among staff. As long as simulators are sold, I doubt the above issues will be fixed. I recommend to anyone hard working and competent who is considering joining the workforce to do so only if you require the pay check. This is not a place for a long term career.

      Pros

      - If you plan on working at CAE, you better be prepared to travel - which, if you're not in charge of people, is a good thing. You will get to explore some amazing countries during your downtime! - When the final products start taking shape, it really is gratifying to see - the devices are pretty cool.

      Cons

      - This is no longer a company on the leading edge: they are slow to adapt new technologies and are always playing catch-up. Don't expect to be working on the latest and greatest platforms. - On-the-job training: better get used to it, because there is essentially no training or helping hands provided. Choose your cliché: Sink or Swim, Baptism by Fire... - The downside to travel: you'll need to leave at the last-minute, and you could be in the field for weeks on end, doing 60, 70, and 80 hours a week - burnout is a distinct possibility. - Constant re-orgs - Twice-yearly rounds of layoffs offer no stability - Management is often the problem: too much management, and all of them looking to advance to their next position.
