    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

    The work is challenging the equipment is top notch and the support is excelant

    Cons

    There are a lot of clicks in management that will single out and treat employees unfairly especially if you get in the spotlight with outstanding program accomplishments. This should be rewarded and encouraged but at BAE it paints a target on your back.

    Advice to Management

    remove the few bad apples that have huge egos and it will allow all of your employees to excel without fear of retribution

    Pros

    BAE Systems, Inc is a great place to work with great compensation, work-life balance, co-workers, and overall purpose to provide products and services that support our military and other government agencies in the defense of our countries freedoms and technology that naturally bleeds over to the private market as well.

    Cons

    The only con that I see is the current turbulence within the Government markets as budgets are slashed there can be some career risk due to reductions in force and reorganization within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide open communication with your employees...it was a great reliever of stress for employees and their families in a turbulent environment.
