Anonymous (Current Employee) – Saint-Laurent, QC – December 21, 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.
