    I worked at BAE Systems USA

    Pros

    Worklife and family balance is great. i had a very good manager who looked out for his people.

    Cons

    More managers need to look out for their employee by making sure they are rewarded for the outstanding efforts they put forth all year long. The annual compensation if any...needs to be more realistic...they consider at a minimum a cost of living adjustment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop dishing out warehouse level increases to professional people that make the company billions!!

    I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, excellent training opportunities to keep employees on the cutting edge, incentives for high performance from employees. Salary averages were consistent with average norms.

    Cons

    Shuffling of upper management lead to inconsistencies in direction of department. This also lead to inconsistent policies leading to a stressful working environment. Advancement opportunities were limited in my department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistent leadership

    Good people doing important work. All depends on where you are located and which contract you are on. My management is flexible with time off and the ability to work from home if needed.

    My business unit is not big on training unless it is on your own time.

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay, little managment supervision, many job functions to move around, friendly people, offers small bonus like $300 at year end for pretty much everybody.

    Cons

    Very little advancement or promotion from within, must move out to move ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Different departmentd are too divided and do not integrate well with each other. Everybody seems to protect their own interest and does not cooperate for greater efficiency; thus, resulting in lots of waste in labor, process due to lack of integration, systems engineering and coherence.

    I worked at BAE Systems USA as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Large company with a lot of resources

    Cons

    The size of the company is relative, as although each group may wear the name "BAE", they actually function as independent organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of taking care of your people. I've worked for BAE on two separate occasions and each time, they lose contracts (the government looking to focus more on small businesses) with no viable alternatives for people working for years with the company.
