Pros

Supportive company culture (vice competitive)
Good communications between major groups beyond EI&S
Opportunities throughout US and some overseas sites
Opportunities to transfer between major groups as appropriate (that is, you're not stuck in a particular type of task; if you have appropriate skills you can move to different lines of business)

Cons

Tight focus on Defense and Intelligence contracting
Clearance requirements -- common to many Government and especially DoD/IC contractors
Work dependent on competitive contracts -- procurement and renewal tension

Advice to Management

End-of-contract transitions for employees can be improved -- it makes more sense to keep people with proven skills than to churn

    Pros

    BAE has name recognition and above average salaries. It provides above average perks like stocked kitchens, and fair travel policies.

    Cons

    The management seems to have difficulty in seeing the longterm picture. Perhaps their bonuses are tied to closely to near term goals. In many divisions, non-Brits need not apply. This is a British company through and through - it is certainly not a "global" one.

    Advice to Management

    Look at long term trends in the defense market and take them into account. The US Defense budget has not decreased in 50+ years. The US is the worlds largest exporter of defense goods. Think about that for a minute.

    Pros

    Great workplace, competent employees. The company takes great care of all of its employees and is a very safe work environment.

    Cons

    Stringent procedures make working here one of the major cons. This is the only con that I can see for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a great job. BAE is a great place to work and I absolutely enjoy working here everyday.
