    Star Star Star Star Star Former Employee in Nashua, New Hampshire

    Company manages the Cigna insurance which makes very difficult to get good coverage.

    Wide variety of benefits offered, but the most costly ones, like healthcare, are limited and poor. To make insurance worth it, you should consider taking out a supplemental policy, using the exchange, or be prepared to never see a doctor. The benefits are allegedly industry standard.

    9-80 work schedule provides flesibility

    Paid leave could be better. As a new employee with 5+ years of prior experience, it's difficult to start from scratch. They have incorporated changes for paid vacation and sick time, but it still could be better. Plus, working in an office that may shut down for weather or Government holidays affects my hours. I have to take personal leave if my office closes on a Government holiday not recognized by BAE Systems (family days for the military). Being in New England, the weather also affects whether or not I can work. I would like alternative options if my office is closed because of weather. Maybe offer training from home and not have to take personal leave.

    There is not enough sick time.

    401k match is 6%, health benefits are on par with most companies. Though many old timers say it is bad in comparison to past benefits. 3 weeks vacation with more time the longer you work at the company. Plenty of employees have been there decades so this is a good benefit if you plan on staying put.

  • Dec 21, 2016
    Star Star Star Star Star Current Senior Principal Engineer in Lompoc, California

    401k matching up to 6% of salary (12% total).

  • Dec 29, 2016
    Star Star Star Star Star Former Employee in York, Pennsylvania

    Heathcare had gone up significantly. Poor vacation time. New hires get 80 hours a year and accumulate days per pay period about 6 hours a month. Personal days cut from 5 to 2. Very little holidays, is not comparable to other defense contractors.

  • Dec 07, 2016
    Star Star Star Star Star Current Employee in York Haven, Pennsylvania

    Benefits significantly cut in 2016. 6k yearly health deductible, profit sharing cut completely, no clear bonus structure to reward employees, personal days went from 5 to 3, holidays do not include 4th of July or day after thanksgiving, 2 weeks PTO that is accrued by pay period roughly you get 6.7 hours a month of PTO. Must work ten extra hours a week for free until you qualify for overtime (50 hours) till overtime pay starts. Benefits do not compare to industry standards. 401k matching 6% I'm sure they will change that soon too.
