Pros

BAE Systems offers a great work life balance, good benefits, competitive compensation, and great peers. Most work a 9/80 schedule so you get every other friday off, I find this schedule very appealing. Experiences seems to vary widely but I have quite enjoyed my time at BAE systems.

Cons

While most have an extremely flexible schedule, you are required to log your work down to 6 minute intervals. Also due to the 9/80 schedule the 40 hour work week ends in the middle of the day on Friday. This proves rather annoying and entirely pointless. This is however common place in the defense industry.

    Pros

    The benefits package is comparable or better than those offered at companies nowadays. Who offers a pension anymore? They do! They care about their employees and try to grow them from within. They offer many opportunities for growth, if you take them. The work schedule is very flexible. The type of work can be interesting if you find the right projects. There is very little overtime.

    Cons

    People need to be a little more motivated to try new things at BAE Systems. They are pretty much set on the technologies they know and love, but are resistant to try newer things. Some of the engineers could use some supplemental training on new technologies (which the company offers). The management (especially newly recruited or promoted) need better training on how to be an effective manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide much better training for those entering management (especially first time managers).

    Pros

    Plent of resources available. Interesting work. Most people friendly.

    Cons

    Can be "Clicky", many layers of management, but thery're working on that. I think senior management sees it and is having difficulty dealing with it. Many "Old Timers" are running the place and can't see new ideas coming in, but not in every case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch you middle managers, many don't know whats really happening in program areas.
