records clerk (Former Employee) – DFW, Dallas – 9 February 2013
This place is very unprofessional and unorganized. The atmosphere is very dry and if you have not been working there for 5 or more years, most likey you won't last long, because the veteran employees will torture you until you quit. Job security is little to none so do not expect to be trained properly due to previous employees having fear of losing their position. Management is not very involved and not trained as well. They leave it up to the veteran employees to train all new hires and implement the rules which makes it very difficult to really feel secure about your job. Also, if you do not participate in work activities or you practice a different religion, you will not be accepted. Overall, I was really impressed at the interview and was very excited to work here, but aftet starting, hearing all the horror stories from coworkers, seeing how unprofessional & unorganized things were, and being discrimanated against because I did not want to participate in the Halloween festivities, I was very hurt and shocked.

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...

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.
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.
