Good Defense Contractor To Work For

Current Employee - Senior Principal Systems Engineer in Reston, VA
Current Employee - Senior Principal Systems Engineer in Reston, VA

I have been working at BAE Systems USA

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Great place for the production minded

    Pros

    Plenty of work. Ability to capture new business keeps everyone working. Philosophy of 100% honesty with customer. Aggressively trying to broaden technical capabilities.

    Cons

    Everything made centers on in house IR FPA technology. Feels like every program is just repackaging the last one with a slight modification. Everything is high volume production - makes a lot of $$ for company but does not translate into more $$ for employees. High volume makes for less interesting engineering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't argue with the business model. This is capitalism.
