Work you into the ground - no concern for the employees, bad management
Administration (Current Employee) – Tampa Fl – 26 March 2014
Poor contractor for government services due to lack of overseeing of the local management. Could be a better company if they not promote bad decisions. Inability to produce the requirements of the contract.
good benefits, good pay
Unreasonable deadlines, unorganized and poor leadership. Unable to provide the government requirements/demands.
Software Developer for aircraft systems (Former Employee) – Montreal, Canada – 6 May 2017
At the beginning, I applied at CAE for an internship of 4 months, and I decided to extend it to 8 months. As an intern, I had a bunch of very interesting responsibilities during this internship and I learned a lot about coding software and about the aircrafts behaviors. Really interesting to play a bit with the flight simulators.
Flexible hours, interesting task, lot of challenges
Stagiaire conception et fabrication 3D (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 27 September 2016
Ce stage est un stage permettant de découvrir l'univers de l'aviation sous un autre angle. Le domaine de la simulation est un domaine très riche en apprentissage. Ce stage m'a également permis d'approfondir mes connaissances dans le domaine de la conception 3D par ordinateur.

Planner (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 18 February 2016
Unfortunately the good times have passed. Understandably difficult economic times has led the company to make many changes in order to remain ahead of the curve, but to what cost? Only time will tell...
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Saint-Laurent, QC – 21 December 2015
Company culture is changing, leaning towards training instead of production. Company is looking into moving engineering development in Hungary and India. Latest software technology used is extremely overloaded and much bureaucracy has been added to the software production. Overall message from management is that it is not necessary to be efficient, most important is too follow the lead from management without questioning. Mid to long term overview looks bleak. as debt and competition increase. After Bombardier's collapse on the market, will CAE be next in the aeronautical field? CAE might just be too specialized in today's market.
Salary and benefits can be good, but expect to get the boot if you last too long in this company.
Management is arrogant and complacent, Decisions are never second-guessed and always a success, True teamwork is lacking, Company managed following a taylorism thought, Extremely high rotation level of employees
Working environment and local working culture are friendly and encouraging most of the time. However it feels disconnected with upper management especially when at work place crisis. I didn't like the micromanagement of the company.
