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

    Pros

    Great contact with the recruitment staff. Secure positions. Very reasonable and high pay.

    Cons

    Some jobs are OCONUS meaning you'd be required or asked to go overseas. For some like myself, this is not exactly a con.

    I have been working at PAE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Its close to home, pays good for the area. This could easily be the best job in the city but its toxic environment makes it one of the worst.

    Cons

    Unbelievably toxic work environment. No matter how many times or how many employees bring the toxic nature of this hangar never gets addressed by the people that xan change it for the better. Leave your common sense at home its not welcomed at PAE.
