    Pros

    Lot's of intelligent, caring , and innovative people. Assist the Warfighter, we actually save lives and have an impact. Each day our people contribute to keeping our nation safe and secure and that is a great feeling.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected, there is a general attitude that things have always been this way so we must continue despite info to the contrary. They don't use their resources to their advantage and there is a climate of just doing enough to get by since there is no tangible recognition of exemplary performance.( this varies from office to office so it may be very differnt at other locations)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your people effectively and reward them for their accomplishments. Listen when they suggest improvements. Provide the employees with the tools they need to complete their mission. Look at industry best practices and embrace them, work on the team concept in truth don't just pay it homage. Provide training to and give the employees guidance on how to move up the chain. Interact with your folks be a leader not an obscure entiy at the end of the hall who only comes out to chastise people.

    I worked at BAE Systems USA as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Interesting contracts and reliable data resources.
    Ergonomic office, well supplied software and hardware, solid backbone.

    Cons

    Unfriendly and/or incapable personnel.
    Corporate philosophy overrides logic and proven method(s).
    North American division's vision substitutes profitability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do away with attempts to diversify the engineering department and areas of leadership, placing those who are nominal and promoting individuals based upon their sex and conforming to a bad philosophy. It is counterproductive and is not profitable whatsoever. Do away with diversification and other parallel philosophies. Rely on multiple intelligences, character, and proven methods. Concentrate on the strengths of people and enable real team building not politics.
