    Pros

    Rewards time in service, numerous corporate discounts, company stock free shares.

    Cons

    None that I can think of at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the worker bees that built the hive you sit in. You say you work for them, at least act like it.

    Pros

    Pay was great. Benefits were excellent. Flexible work hours. All around excellent company to work for.

    Cons

    There weren't really any cons. Most of the co-workers were great to be around. Occasionally you have a bad one, but that's with any job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Employees happiness is number 1 at this company and that's why so many stay. Just do more evaluations of the team leaders to make sure their team is happy with them.

    Pros

    I worked there for over 5 years and only left, because the location has been changed to a design center staffed mainly with engineers. The people, including management, were open, honest and straightforward. I never had any personnel issues and if I did I felt I could seek help from Human Resources and it would be provided without retaliation. Pay was competitive and benefits were good. I made numerous friends there with whom I still keep in close touch.

    Cons

    Can't think of a thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Good management that prioritizes looking out for their staff members. Pay is pretty competitive.

    Cons

    Intel analyst opportunities became more limited due to government budget cuts. upward mobility came through progressing on the management track vice analytic, which could be good for some people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking good care of your people!

    Nice working environment with trust and respect for others

  8. Good company

    Pros

    The people were nice, helpful and enjoyable to work with. Great benefits. Clean, well kept environment. Reasonably current equipment. Free soda and coffee.

    Cons

    Biggest con was the lack of IT personnel. My workstation required reimaging and was not functional at all and it would have taken 5 work days to get it complete if I hadn't had my manager step in to escalate.

    Pros

    BAE Systems has some innovative technologies and is willing to invest in keeping those technologies relevant. BAE Systems does provide some good technical solutions to military obsolescence. They are making inroads with winning new contracts on some of the latest aircraft commercially.

    BAE Systems treated their employees with dignity - even in the midst of layoffs caused by government contract termination.

    Cons

    Invest more in government relations resources - politics plays a large role in the decision-maker's minds for large government contracts (how many high-tech jobs will come to a given city/state if BAE Systems wins this government contract?).

    BAE Systems needs to work on branding and name recognition within the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    Act like a prime aerospace integration company. No, BAE Systems isn't an aerospace OEM in the US; however, there are some opportunities to leverage the company's strengths into large scale integrations for avionic system upgrades given reduced defense budgets and the explosion of remote sensing platforms (drones).

    Go beyond building high-quality subsystems, grow to the point where BAE Systems is know for the integration of those subsystems on relevant platforms.

    Pros

    Chance to work with in a big company with opportunities to grow professionally. Great training programs to give you additional skills for move laterally or upward in company. Strong leadership that fosters good working environments.

    Cons

    Pay is fair at best. Some good employees have left for more pay with a competitor.

    Advice to Management

    I am satisfied with overall pros and cons of company and leadership. Possibly stronger offers and bigger bonuses!
