One of the better major defense contractors, but ultimately constrained by its size

Pros

The company was strongly committed to ethical behavior, and had interesting work. Benefits were very average for this size defense contractor.

Cons

Because they use salary bands based on years of experience and aren't eager to make exceptions, compensation for talented individuals will never match what they can make in smaller organizations. Employees in management positions (including low-level management positions such as team leads) were not paid for time spent doing managerial functions such as performance evaluations for subordinates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your employees, be fair and threat them fairly. That's why BAE is such a good company. Everyone is threated like family.
