    I have been working at CAE

    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.
