What Employees Say
I worked at BAE Systems USA for less than a year
* Pay: Competitive for an intern. It will vary based upon what year you are at school, but not your major. * Experience: Looking back at it, the projects were a bit simplistic, but they probably had... to be in order to work with a internship time line (only two months) * People: The people I worked with were phenomenal! Very personable, and I genuinely enjoyed spending time with them. This was the type of internship where you got hugs and genuine well wishes when you left. * Overall: I learned a lot from some very knowledgeable professionals, and I enjoyed my time here.
* You can't really have qualms with working for defense. This company definitely has pride in what they do, and if you feel a little weird about working for defense, you may not love it here.
I have been working at Revature full-time for more than a year
Worth it. Honestly, I owe it to Revature for getting my foot in the door in this field. They have big clients, great exposure, and amazing training and staff. Granted the pay is no where near the... national average but that’s something you have to make peace with before signing the contract. They tell you what your pay will be, and once you’re on a project you will be working with people (non-revature) who do the same thing as you, and get paid way more but that’s part of the deal. Another thing you need to make peace with is that they can send you literally anywhere within the US so if you’re stuck in a state you don’t like, oh well. But remember why you did this, to build your career and get your foot in the door so if you keep that in mind, it won’t feel as terrible. If you can afford to invest 2 years of your time (possibly less, depending on if client buys you out or not) then it will be so so worth it.
I would say the unknowns (who’s the client, when’s my start date, where’s the location) but there’s nothing revature can really do about that because most of the time you’ll be working for the... clients client so it’s up to them to decide where your project will be.
Advice to Management
Add more states to the “high cost of living” areas. The list that’s active now 100% needs some major cities added to it.
