    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CAE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    See a plane fly by every now and again...

    Cons

    Long unsociable hours Montreal rules Oxford, tried to make Sales and somehow higher ups in Montreal got involved and told me how to speak to people on the phone when making a sale! No work life balance Backwards mentality in Oxford Unfriendly staff and mean environment - No staff help NO training offered whatsoever High turnover Redundancies happen frequently and often poorly timed Micro management from the top level Terrible morale

    Advice to Management

    Montreal is the HQ but don't forget about Oxford. Sort out the morale and sort out the out of date simulators. Staff refuse to wear CAE branded clothing so the main issue is change management. The simulators are 30+ years old.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at CAE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work environment. Salary. Team Members. Work hours. Holidays

    Cons

    Unrealistic goals. Constant change in territories. Management turnover. No clear plan.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of direction leads to poor performance. Stick to goals for more than 1 quarter at a time. Training new hires more closely, this would alleviate pressures from existing employees. Give value to existing employees.
