Pros

The workforce is very dedicated and technically strong. Training is highly empasized. They are known for their strength in Program Management. Engineering work is done in a very comprehensive manner.

Cons

Business process systems were antiquated. (Still processed paper purchase reqs.) Management decision making was very slow. Some of the facilities were quite old. IT systems are old and unreliable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a former employee of the Santa Clara / San Jose site I find it very disappointing to see so many technically brilliant people let go. This loss of human capital was enormous and significantly impacts the company's ability to design combat ground vehicles.

    Pros

    There are a lot of talented people working at bae and great opportunities to learn and to network with governement agencies.

    Cons

    The executive management does not have a clue on how to run the business. They are ruining the company much like the governement is rining our country. BAE views it employees as cost rather then assets ad now that they have been laying people off for more then three years now, if they did win a proposal, they can't support it.
