Pros

Good job opportunities
Excellent pay packages and year pay increase (2006-2010)
Good benefits packages (2006-2010)
Good year-end Xmas party
Some promotion opportunities

Cons

As an employee management does not have your six
Management looks out for itself in order to maintain metrics
Improper training for people on the management track
No extra pay for people on management track

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None really since do not present state of company environment. So many DoD contractor companies out there now that no need to recommend anyone to BAE, however.

    I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of work to do. No micro management.

    Cons

    They are looking for any reason to lay people off or get rid of them. Yet they are so top heavy with so many directors and VPs that have no clue about the actual work that needs to be done. They continue to delegate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of excess directors and VPs. Need more people who do the actual work.

    Pros

    It's a big firm with lots of different types of opportunities - but taking advantage of those may involve relocation. Focus is mostly on hardware (e.g., building radios, refurbishing vehicles) rather than software (developing or integrating applications).

    Cons

    Middle and upper management do not understand that managing software development and contracts is different than hardware.
    Increasing pressure to cut overhead lead to significant outflow of technical capabilities and knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Software engineering needs a different business model than IT O&M support
