    They have a great training program, and match 401k

    The Benefits are why I love my job. They match 401(k)s at 100% up to 6% of your salary. Starting out you get 15 days of paid time off as well as 10 additional paid holiday (8 or 9 are scheduled, which the remaining being floating holidays that you can use whenever). The insurance is pretty cheap to my understanding (I haven't personally paid for it as I use my husband's insurance). I think I pay about $7 total a month for my long/short term disability coverage and varying life insurance policies.

    What Benefits package? They have those?

    Best 401K, and the worst is lack of transparency.

    401K match was good, better than lots of small businesses in the market

    Pretty good 401K. Healthcare is focused on preventative care which can make it tricky when something serious comes up. Vacation time starts at 2 weeks. No maternity leave.

    The very best benefit for working at BAE Systems is the 9/80 work schedule (Note: only certain business units operate on a 9/80 schedule--not all). Also, their tuition assistance is better than most companies; certain business units will pay up to $15,000/yr. in tuition reimbursements. The worst thing is their health insurance plans, which are all 80/20 co-insurance rather than co-payments.

    50% Company match up to 8% on 401k
