I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time (more than 10 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Company culture - employees are valued. Benefits/incentives are competitive. Opportunities are plentiful. All employees have ability to return to school to further their education and company will reimburse tuition.

    BAE Systems, Electronic Systems is a subcontractor for many programs. They do not own the platform their products are used on. Companies such as Lockheed, L-3, Boeing, etc. own the platforms BAE makes products for.
