    Pros

    Understanding and supportive management team that strives to recognize the importance of happy employees.

    Cons

    Corporate processes and procedures are not fully aligned with the infrastructure in place at all of the various locations, which causes significant challenges for teams that do not have the tools they need to meet expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A project focused on determining what the employees actually working at the lowest levels need in order to accomplish goals would greatly assist in reducing the time and effort spent to correct problems later.

    I worked at BAE Systems USA

    Pros

    Hourly pay plus time and a half overtime, and interns are one of the only groups who can easily get permission for overtime. Great people, opportunity to learn about and work with departments outside college major. Every other friday off, and no required start and end time each day since pay is by the hour.

    Cons

    Sometimes the only work available for interns is very dull and tedious, because most projects require a security clearance and BAE does not get clearances for interns. No windows until you've been working there full time for about 10-15 years. The lab has lots of big loud machines in it, bring headache medicine your first week until you get used to it.
    Getting a full time job at BAE is not any easier having successfully gone through the internship program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire your interns! You can save on training costs and you already know we like it there enough to want to stay, so you are less likely to have to find someone to replace us in a year. Interning at one location should be a boost to a resume at any location, not just the department that was originally interned with.
