I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Over the years the company was a great place and a place where young engineers could learn. Work can be very interesting.

Cons

Over the last 3+ years they have laid off far too many of the most experienced and competent people. Now they plan to do more of the same in order to reduce rates. Our customers are losing confidence in us and our commitment to them. The experience and expertise of employees is no longer respected. Those who have been the most successful and therefore promoted now find their jobs at risk. Those who have not been promoted are safer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think before you loose all of your expertise! It may be close to too late now. You can only manage by the bottom line for a few more years before you destroy all of our capabilities.

    By their behavior, BAE management -- with one notable exception -- did not value human capital.

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Probably the best HR operation that I have experienced in twenty years.

    Cons

    The first-line of management was disengaged from the client and the employees.
    There was absolutely no sense of a corporate identity among the 20-30 BAE on site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the client; talk to the employees; and treat employees with the same regard that you demanded for yourselves.
