    I worked at CAE full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance is what you make of it. A small core of very committed people try their best to make it a good place to work. The business has great potential in the market.

    Cons

    This is a monarchy. The king issues his decrees from a far-off castle in Montreal and the lords, ladies and peasants must obey. If you can't, it's off with your head. Instead of listing all the problems, I will simply say, people here either escape as soon as they find another opportunity or have been here so long that they just keep their heads down and dream of their not-too-distant retirement--that or they are still hoping that a white knight will someday come and free them.

    Advice to Management

    Broaden yourselves and your experience. Find managers and executives with new perspectives and stronger leadership who can elaborate a strategy and stick with it for longer than a month. Support and empower your people rather than starve and belittle them. Update your systems, the right way. Make plans, real plans that are based on real data and real opportunities. And show a little backbone in front of the Wall Street analysts.

    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.
