Mixed Feelings about my time at BAE

Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Diego, CA

I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

This was my first job out of college, and I had a lot of co-workers go above and beyond to get me up to speed and show me the ropes. The 9/80 work schedule is fantastic. Full 401k match. I enjoyed working in Liberty Station.

Cons

Uninspiring work that rarely required any innovation. The 1990's called and want their technology back. Over the 5 years I worked there, a significant amount of work was scrapped or put on hold due to contract losses or failure to acquire a contract. Would often go long stretches without writing code. Poor medical benefits.

    Pros

    Committed to ethical behavior and doing the right thing. They treat their employees well and do not exclude or alienate them from keeping them informed

    Cons

    Capture managers are having a tough time finding more business. Pet programs get way too much attention and siphon money from others. For Land and Armaments, why transfer employees from Santa Clara all the way to Michigan, then lay them off?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember where your subject-matter experts are. Don't fixate or prioritize on geographical locations, expecting them to generate a successful base immediately. We know the challenges you are having at Sterling Heights.
