Great employees and Manager
Operations Superv (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, California18 November 2017
A typical day is 8 hours long. During the day the clerks are constantly working on receiving, entering, and delivering interview files. The best part of the job is everyone including the Manager help each other out and the customer is happy as we deliver above expectations.
Pros
Supportive and very nice Manager
Cons
salary is too low

Aircraft Mechanic III/ Phase Dock Chief (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NV14 November 2017
When I came into work I already had a plan and a backup plan. When working aircraft you have to be flexible because anything can happen. I enjoyed the people I worked with. As the Dock Chief thing can become stressful but the crew I had even with the worst situation I had no worries.

Pays less compared to similar jobs in the same field.
Mechanic II (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CA12 November 2017
The hours are fair, however you don't get paid as much as you should. Sometimes managers will try to pull employees away for something when the emplyee should be taking their break. the company seems to be mismanaged from the senior level.

Average government contract
Flight Line Equipment Shop Lead (Current Employee) –  Bagrām31 October 2017
Nothing spectacular, pay is maybe a little below average for a contractor but still more than most stateside positions. 6-7 days a week. 12 hour days and overtime on occasion.

Nice atmosphere
Site Supervisor (Current Employee) –  New York, NY25 October 2017
Nice small office. Laid back. You can get along with everyone because it is small. Everyone watches out for everyone which is nicer than other places. Because you can't advance much there isn't this constant feeling of competition.

It was a job. No frills. You come to work...work... and go home.
Aviation Mechanic (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CA8 October 2017
The atmosphere was at a flat level. No high, no low. No commaraderie building between workers. A company without a company gel. Felt like just a bunch of contractors doing there own thing.
Pros
working hours
Cons
no overtime.

Lead Analyst, and Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Falls Church, VA3 October 2017
Typical days range from 8-10 hours. Clients and peers/colleagues are a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately, current senior management does not seem to be on the same page with operational employees.

Great Company, Great Direction, Lack of Compensation
Service Desk Analyst (Current Employee) –  Virginia1 October 2017
PAE is a fantastic company that has a fair workload for all, and great management across the board. The issue with this is that with its main location, it is prudent to properly compensate it's employees for not only the hard work they do, but for the skills they have. In comparison with other salaries that Contractors and Government Agencies have, PAE is very well around 15-25% lower than competing employers in the area.
Pros
Good Work Environment, Great Benefits and Coworkers
Cons
Compensation is lacking, advancement is very difficult
