    Supports the government so work can be stopped at any time

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    BAE Systems for the past few years has consistently tried to make the Forbes list for "A Great Place To Work" and there attempts have not gone unnoticed. BAE Systems has hired the services from a Great to Work Place institute to access and transform the company to being recognized as a Great Place to Work. BAE Systems goes above and beyond on a multitude of benefits for employees in the United States from Wellness and Health Care, Employee recognition, Competitive salary's and a number of different avenues for awards for excellent achievement. BAE Systems is also very active in Diversity and Inclusion and has set up a number of great Employee Resource Groups to help other employees identify with each other in order to benefit themselves, there peers and the community.

    Cons

    With any company or organization, it's all about the people. On some rare occasions, when there is a large population of employees, you are bound to run into a rotten apples.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pressing, don't give up. BAE Systems is very close to being put on the list of a Great Work Place, and I feel just a few more tweaks, and 1 or 2 years. Everyone will see how Great BAE Systems truly is.

    Pros

    Beautiful facility, great environment, new tools, clean and organized. One of the best places I have ever had to the chance to work

    Cons

    I can't really think of any cons except the fact the most of the work is contract based so you have a job one month and next month you don't.

    Pros

    Great internship program. Lots of opportunities to learn more about the industry and what the company does in both the program you're in and in other sectors of the company.

    Cons

    higher level of self-directed work (depending on supervisor), you will excel if you are disciplined and take initiative, otherwise you won't take much away from the experience.

    Advice to Management

    Great program, lots of activities in the summer months to engage interns and give them the opportunity to learn about the company and engage with industry professionals.
