    I have been working at PAE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The contract I work on is decent. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    PAE corporate is disorganized. Onboarding was scattered and we are getting screwed compared to our prime contractor employees on site. They do the same job but they (XLA) get much better benefit options and flexibility with use of H&W.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure you are in tune with employee concerns and address them. Current contract I work on leaves much to be desired and the lack of consistency between PAE and the other prime contractor on the HFE is creating issues. PAE is making themselves come across as less desirable by not matching options on H&W and time drops.

    Great supervisor, great schedule, great environment to work in.

    Good pay, great Human Resources department, they really care about they're employees. Good benefits, they try they're best to make sure you as an employee are happy with you job.

    Hard to get hired with them. Management can try too hard sometimes. Management sometimes needs to cut people that aren't working out but they get to stick around.

    Job satisfaction. My area of expertise. 401k is matched 50 percent. Work in close relations with the Navy which keeps a strong brotherhood.

    Pay your management more for cost of living situations.

    I worked at PAE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company was solid and provided much opportunity for expansion and growth It had a foundation that many other like companies were not able to successfully achieve. PAE is a leader in sustainable technical and mechanical support.

    Cons

    As that it is a large entity the HR piece takes a little longer to resolve issues (but they do get resolved). If you are not on a major contract or working on a large scale project, the companies direct involvement with you is limited to annual review and annual visit.

    Advice to Management

    Vest a little more in your people and smaller contracts as they are your one consistent money maker when having a year of expansion and growing the business model by 20% or more.
