Pros

Working in the defense research industry provides many interesting problems to solve. However, working at BAE Systems makes it interesting to solve the problems.
Flexible hours are possible. Working strictly 9-5 is unnecessary, maybe arrive as early as 6am or as late as 10am. As long as you can complete your tasks in a timely manner, there is no "clock watching" to ensure that you are present.

Cons

Nearing project deadlines, you may need to work (potentially unpaid) overtime in order to complete the software product.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Generally a good job.

    Pros

    Professional Development, you will learn a lot. The people are very smart.

    Cons

    Working in E&IS is a very narrow area. It's easy to become bored with your work and for things to become monotonous. Managers have a knack for putting younger employees into precise fields rather than letting them explore what they have a passion for and what they do not. If you don't stand up for what you're interested in, you're going to become easily dissatisfied with your work. There's a culture of "not my fault" instead of "How can we make it work?"...not everywhere, but enough that it makes working just that much less fun and productive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rotate your newer employees every year or so to keep them fresh and interested. Extend ELDP methodologies into the rest of the organization.

    Pros

    Engineers are great mentors to younger engineers coming up the ranks. Young engineers get exposed to as many things that they can handle inside the company. This includes advanced topics like advanced communications, imagery, high speed cameras, SOA, enterprise architecture and radar equipment.

    Cons

    Very slow project movement and very wasteful with money. Projects aren't taken very seriously so a lot of time is wasted on bad projects. The leadership needs to shape up or the facility may go away. A majority of the workers are very old and do not like to put any effort into work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If they do not shape up, BAE Systems Greenlawn may dissappear similar to the Yonkers facility.
