Pros

BAE WAS a good company that cared for it's employees about 10 years ago. It has good Engineers and employees that do a good job and always keep the soldier in mind.

Cons

The downside to this company is that they have laid off their knowledge base by letting go employees that had years of experience. They have hired new employees which are paid significantly less and don't have loyalty towards the company. Layoffs are done on a day's notice with no consideration to the employees. They keep the layoffs under 50; therefore, not having to abide by the WARN notice to employees. Not a fun place to work anymore as you never know when will be your last day. If you have more than 20 years as an employee, you can count on being on the layoff list.

Advice to Management

You have lost many of your contracts including STS and A3. The government questions your ability to build new products. You need to remember that it was your employees that made you successful at one time. Stop chipping away at your knowledge base and show more consideration towards your employees.

    Good working environment but a rigid structure is being put in place...for the worst.

    Pros

    The engineers are smart and dedicated but management quality is unequal. Without being overly generous with employees salaries are good but benefits in kind are close to non-existent and health benefits is getting worst.

    Cons

    The movement in the industry is rationalisation. BAE systems took the massive cost cutting and increased structural rigidity route forgetting about investment and R&D a.k.a the core of the business.
    Benefits were slashed from 2010 to 2012.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility is good for business! Remember it!!
