I worked at BAE Systems USA

Pros

The nature of my position allows for alot of flexibility to be able to spend time with my family. Good pay

Cons

If I want to make more money I am going to have to move into management, but I am not so sure I want to do that until my kids head off for college

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the contracts rolling in, I hope this industry is as stable in 10 years as it is now. No real criticisms

    I worked at BAE Systems USA

    Pros

    The hours were moderate, but they were also flexible and understanding of the work/life balance. Over the more than 10 years I worked there, a lot had changed within the company, so the small group of that had started in our division, slowly dispersed to go on elsewhere.

    But the projects were extremely varied, interesting and challenging. Great science and engineering with a good group of people all really interested in what they were doing. I still miss some of the things I did there and I've kept long lasting friendships with the a few coworkers.

    If the right opportunity came up, I might go back.

    Cons

    Senior management was more worried about themselves than their employees. Bonuses when given were a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and remember that the people actually doing the work keep you employed as well.

    OK Place to Work, poor morale, and major layoffs this year.

    Pros

    Fairly large company with some nice benefites

    Cons

    Salaries can differentiate heavily. Some people skate by by being "favorites". Promotion can be difficult. Getting feedback for your work is hard if your manager is not directly involved in your project. Poor morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your practices. We are laying off some good people, while employing lazy incompetent folks.
