Pros

My experience at BAE Systems is like belonging to a family. There good managers which actually care about you and your career path.

Cons

They tend to begin a project without fully knowing the actual work scope and required trained staffing. To meet unrealistic schedule deadlines they place the burden on the workers to make up lost time by forcing mandatory overtime.

Advice to Management

Provide adequate staffing to a project prior to program kickoff. Provide adequate training to workers and use overtime only as last resort.

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits, smart technology, critical mission, lightly structured, world-wide presence and name recognition, largely varied market involvement.

    Cons

    BAE operates as a collection of small and medium-sized, independent companies and penalizes working together with other business inside of the company. Internal competition is stronger than company loyalty and commitment to a particular BAE brand, product or service. BAE operates as a conglomerate, not a monolithic corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Build trust with other sectors and lines of business through collaboration and tearing down internal borders.

    Pros

    Large company, more opportunity to move around departments

    Cons

    Large company too many layers of management - department heads restrained from moving personnel around if contract can't handle less bodies in their chair.

    Advice to Management

    Thin out management staff, use working manager's.
