    I worked at CAE

    Pros

    was a great ambiance, open, friendly work environment up until the last 5-8 years. Given lots of responsibility early in career. Plenty of opportunity for travel, sometimes at cost of personal life.

    Cons

    Gone down hill. Nothing but cost cutting, and reorganizing. Atmosphere is certainly not the same as it use to be when it was one of the top 100 companies to work for in Canada. Some shift work which is not ideal, especially when travel is also involved.
