      Pros

      My coworkers make work more enjoyable, and I really enjoy doing the work itself, its a fun job and gets more interesting every day.

      Cons

      Low pay for as much work as you're expected to do. PAE likes to bid low so they win contracts but then they can't pay their employees what they're worth. Their contracts are jammed with all of these expectations, which is fine, but for the low pay it doesn't seem worth it.

      Pros

      NONE. There is nothing positive about this company. They don' t care about their employees. Very bad benefits. They don't pay employees a living wage.

      Cons

      I have been working as an government contractor for over 2 years. PAE bought out the former company FCI. It has been a challenge every since. Very low pay. They lured us in with a PPO healthplan that had a $35. 00 co-pay. When it came time to pick our new plans they used the fact that we are not union to stick us with a High Option plan that has a $2500 deductible. Do they not know what they pay us? They do not provide their employees with sick time either. I have never talk to or even met one person from Upper Management at PAE. They don' t respond to emails either. They don't care about their employees concerns. They just care about having someone in a seat so they can bill the government.

      Horrible company with bad management

      Pros

      Nice new building in Seattle but they're moving from the top floor to the bottom floor in the new building. Casual dress code.

      Cons

      Essentially, bad management. I work primarily with Microsoft and Nike. In addition to low pay, PAE expects you to work way beyond a 50-hour work week. Very cutthroat environment. Other reviews about HR being not present are true too.
