    I have been working at BAE Systems USA (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    None, anymore really. You still get a paycheck, 401k, health benefit package, bad one, but there is one.

    Cons

    Overworked, underpaid, underappreciated, bad upper management, repeat mistakes to save time and money, hurting employees and eventually losing the project. Schedule not flexible at all. Continues to take benefits away, as in pto earned a month, awards, benefits,etc

    Advice to Management

    Believe giving "advice" to the uppers = banging your head against a wall that will never give

    Pros

    Good people to work with, plenty of opportunities to experience different types of work while in the rotation program.

    Cons

    Endicott location is not that great. You could end up being on the same program for 5+ years performing the same tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities to rotate to other facilities in different sectors. Provide more opportunities for experienced employees to try new programs outside of their expertise.

    Pros

    Large organization, advanced technology and great innovation, good location

    Cons

    Too large, slow grow, too many levels or too many managers, change frequency of top management

    Advice to Management

    Truly understand the market we are serving. Production is not the only way to make money/profit.

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people but forced to use old technology. If they made a smart phone it would weigh 25 lbs and need a long extension cord because of the organizational constraints, not because of the engineering talent. Some very smart engineers but working on old tech.

    Cons

    Clueless management Antiquated tools, processes, and mindset. Poor benefits - and always under attack. Bad culture - Employee surveys are ignored or actions taken which do not address issues raised. Seat of the pants get it to work engineering that is driven by ego.

    Advice to Management

    Retire. Commodity driven DoD against a self described engineering company does not bode well for a company who does not believe in its people or in industry standards.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Work is fun and interesting.

    Cons

    Management does not listen to new ideas.Seems like this company is stuck in the 1990s. Benefits are poor. Health care is very expensive. Some managers are brutal and non professional.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and spend the money to get back on track for the future.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with all personnel at BAE System Mayport. Each day had new challenges and it was amazing how it all got done. Pay and benefits were awesome!

    Cons

    Going on base, going through all the security gates was frustrating, but it was needed. Just had to be patient and accept the day to be longer. The other con, work was based on government contracts. When there was work it was a 60-70 hours work week easy. But when its slow you waited for lay off papers.

    Advice to Management

    Miss you all
