Pros

Large company with many talented people and friendly work environment.
Numerous programs to keep work diverse and interesting.
Leadership development program is great for young fresh out of undergraduate engineers.
Good work life balance depending on the program you are on.

Cons

Limited career development and growth, this is relative depending on which department and/or area of the company you work in.
Roller coaster work schedules due to tight schedule deadlines.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to focus more on the career development as well as job retention of younger generations, especially the ones that have worked in the company for 5+ years. Those who are familiar with the company and its programs and who are young and quick to learn will provide the most benefit for the company.

    Pros

    Training provided for employees who need it for their jobs free by BAE.

    Cons

    Hard to get training provided for employees who need it for their jobs. They tell you you get free training during orientation, but when you ask for it, they say no. Why? So the PM can pocket the training budget as a end-of-year bonus. They also cut benefits across the board (changed HMO to crappier HMO, cut PTO, cut annual trip to Kings Dominion, etc). Kept the annual Xmas party at the Air and Space museum, though; wouldn't want to look less cool now, would we? Also, pay WELL below average ($35k salary for Break/Fix Tech? You can make more in a customer service call center!) Oh, and the cherry on the top: expected hourly employees to work overtime without getting paid! Illegal much? If we're that busy, HIRE MORE PEOPLE! One more thing, don't try to move within the company; the second you apply for another position within, your PM will post your job on Dice, Monster, etc, so you'll probably get fired before you get moved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to employees about benefits you never plan on providing them, stop providing useless benefits no one cares about, and stop denying overtime to hourly employees.
