Sr Network Engineer (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 16 March 2017
A good place to work for. Not many opportunities for advancement or promotion makes it challenging to stick around. They do offer ample time for family and after 14 years of service, 4 weeks of annual vacation is very nice.
Company is more focused on keeping the State Dept happy than employee satisfaction. There is not a lot of worker confidence in the company. Working in Moscow Russia give you the opportunity to see Europe.
Typical Army Base construction and maintenance job
Carpenter (Former Employee) – Fort Carson, CO – 10 March 2017
I have worked here for several years. I am looking to maybe seek employment a little closer to home. I don't have any problems with the job, or my supervisors, We do everything from replacing blinds to building new buildings. . I have never been wriiten up, or late to my job, and work wherever I am needed.
Fire Fighter (Former Employee) – McMurdo, Antarctica – 22 February 2017
I learned a lot about the contracting world. Many of my direct supervisors worked with me wanting to see me grow in the company and wanting me to come back or pick up other contracts that might better fit me.
My direct supervisors were among the best I've worked with in the fire fighting world. But the two main managers were way out of touch with the needs of the department and just played the political game with town management and the Denver home office.
Pay was decent for what I'd be doing back home but way underpaid compared to most all other contracts in the same job field.
Upper management is out of touch, the pay could be better and the equipment was fairly old or cheap
Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 22 February 2017
Moved ½ way across the country to work for PAE. A timeline was set that is completely impossible to achieve and once the deadline gets close you are threatened constantly of being fired. No tools, no programs set up for the teams to be successful. Don't waste your time, go somewhere else.
Front Office employee (Current Employee) – Stennis Space Center, MS – 15 February 2017
A joint venture (S3) in which PAE is the majority partner took over facility and test operations contracts for NASA at both the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, LA and Stennis Space Center, MS. PAE corporate personnel are incompetent at best as they routinely come on site to help and over a year later nothing is better, if anything it's worse. Complete lack of leadership from the top down. PAE management destroyed the moral and productivity that was in existence under the previous three contracts. They have "laid off" some of the best most caring employees that we the workforce could turn to when we needed help. PAE's financial systems are lacking and they cannot provide good numbers to the NASA customer. The senior management team is untruthful and plays favoritism. If you are in with one particular person in management then you don't have to worry about your job as this person hires, promotes, terminates and demotes strictly based on her personal opinion not based on the needs of the business. This contract has continued to hire people instead of putting into place systems and processes that work. Now we were just notified by senior management in an email that there is going to be a layoff due to this overstaffing. Sad thing is, the favorites who don't perform will get to stay while some of the good ones go home. I would not recommend PAE to anyone looking for employment. Go dig ditches somewhere if you can find a job doing that as it will be more rewarding!
Lack of leadership, no tools and/or process for employees to do their jobs effectively, corporate office support
Electrician and Avionics Tech (Current Employee) – Fort Lewis, WA – 19 January 2017
Very different then other operations, but nevertheless, safety is always the number one factor, aside of that, you must be self driven to accomplish your work, since there is no one to guide you thru it.
