Former Employee - Senior Procurement Specialist

I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 3 years


Team willing to help you with anything you need. Management understanding of issues that pop up and are wanting to find a way to help. Work as advertised and no hidden duties. Flexible hours. Time... off loaded at the beginning of the year so you don't have to wait for holidays after you earn it. Willing to let you go if you find a better position that makes more money or fits your unique situation. They understand you need to grow.


They will low-ball you in salary, but if you stick to your guns, you will get close, if not what you ask for.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what your doing!

Current Employee - Senior Firmware Engineer

I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than 5 years


Flex time to let me work when I want to. A 9/80 (or alternative) work schedule to provide 3 day weekends every other week. Good benefits. Great coworkers. Great furniture. Good hierarchy manager and... lead structure to allow for help from multiple directions. Everyone is for the warfighter and not for BAE, which focuses us on the customer, not management. 1


Over the last 4 years BAE has slowly rolled back some great benefits. Weekly to Bi-weekly pay periods and stating there's no cost difference (what about payroll??). First 10 hours over 80 hours are... free - we get no pay (4 years ago we did! ). They've removed the best Traditional health insurance program. If you are really good at your job, a golden goose, you'll constantly get pulled back to the same program which could be great, but if you don't like that program then that will push you out of BAE.

Advice to Management

Ensure your employees are happy where they are, and if they aren't then move them to somewhere they want to go, don't keep giving them raises or promotions to make them stay.
