Logistics Coordinator / Program Support Unit Chief (Former Employee) – Velāyat-e Kābol – 17 July 2017
Due to the time difference between Kabul and Washington DC, it could be challenging but I think the field kept up with any requests.
There were some great managers and a couple of really poor managers - like they really scraped the bottom of the bucket. But overall, I think the good ones out weighted the bad while I was there.
The hardest part of the job was attempting to stay on top of everything during a bad manager phase. It was quite a challenge. Finally though, headquarters caught on to what was going on and put a stop to it. I have a lot of respect for our Program Manager in Headquarters.
I enjoyed all the challenges that came with my position.
The people are great, the experience is increditable, enviornment is extreme but the pay could be better.
Heavy Equipment Mechanic (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO 80112 – 8 July 2017
Repairing all sorts of heavy equipment including things I've never seen or heard of. I learn new things everyday and enjoy it. Management could be better and the chance for advancement depends on heather or not you kiss some butt. This position is located in the McMurdo Station, Antarctica so the environment is awesome and the people come from all over the country and the world, yes it's very cool. The hardest part of the job is the extreme cold weather and windy conditions that can occur. The best part is the people and cool science we as Americans do there.
Free travel, room and board, food and the opportunity to go to the seventth continent.
Some extreme cold weather conditions, long time away from home, long hours and the pay could be better.
GC1 (Current Employee) – Lees Summit, MO – 8 July 2017
FCi Federal recently became a part of PAE so I guess you could say that this review is more of FCi. I have not worked here long but I really do believe that this is a good long term career although it seems to take a long time to move up and be promoted. There is great job security as long as you can maintain your clearance and follow all of the protocol and procedures. I can tell that PAE will make great changed to the company and they seem very dedicated to what they are doing and where they are going.
Second shift is a very funny schedule and would high recommend to transfer to first shift if you ever get the chance.
Homemade Explosives Instructor (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – 3 July 2017
Currently a contractor assigned to ATF Homemade Explosives Program (training). The ATF and PAE management are active and enthusiastic in providing high quality HME training and advancing the program. A typical work day may includes providing training to military and civilian bomb technicians on identifying, processing and disposing of homemade explosive materials(i.e. running practical exercises). There is no down side to this current work environment.
Custodian (Current Employee) – North Las Vegas, NV – 3 July 2017
PAE has is a good company too work for. Not the job it's the people that work there. It has been a hostile working environment there are when i hate going too work. Some management are alright the only good thing is the money. But money not everything.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Lakeville, MN – 17 June 2017
A typical day at work would be starting at 6am and busting my butt to move product to inspectors. I did not have a rate to maintain but I did have to keep the inspectors lines with product. The job itself was not that bad besides the fact that if you were not moving fast enough managers would come and threaten you with your job. People who had a rate had their incentive bonuses revoked while their rates were raised. Every morning we were yelled at that rate must be made and that they had no problem firing people who couldn't make it, even employees who had been there for 10+ years. I ended up walking off due to a consistent lack of respect and lack of professionalism from my manager and warehouse manager.
20$ an hour from temp agency
short breaks, rude managers, little appreciation for employees
good work schedule nice employees there is not a lot of Drama everyone helps each other there is a lot of things that you can learn working for this company you get benefits as soon as you walk in the door
Accountant Assistant (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – 7 June 2017
I have preserved the core business and supported the organic growth of the business. I have achieve all goals being presented for the company/government. I have embraced diversity, and created a culture of inclusiveness and maintained a global perspective about the company.
I've learned how to deliver financial commitments, maintain customer relationships to ensure effective two way feedback to meet and exceed customers expectations. I've establish an accounting document control schedule for eased and efficient ways in locating accounting documentations when they were required.
Built a world class support organization and sought a continuous improvement to support and excel at providing exceptional services.
PAE is a good company to work for but has poor leadership.
Construction Superintendent (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – 1 June 2017
The construction department was a very stressful area to work in, you are always under the gun to make a profit with a poor design and inaccurate estimate. The crafts personnel produce quality work but are often doing things twice to correct mistakes made during construction. The program manager was always trying to make his personnel look bad in front of his NASA customers and he would make decisions that would effect the outcome of several projects.
