    Current Employee - Imagery Analyst in Fort Gordon, GA

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Better benefits than previous subcontractors, including shift bonus pay for undesirable hours - Great leadership, actually met and began working with me on circumstances special to me that may affect my ability to work certain hours/days. - Much better pay than my previous employer in the same field, actually made an effort to retain my experience. - Ability to progress within the company based on desire and performance, and actually promotions and raises along with it. Previous salaries seemed to be established on a whim, and took little influence from performance. - Large company with expansive relocation opportunities.

    Cons

    - No part-time positions available, at least in my office. But this is not unique to BAE and is how the contract works. - Little flexibility with shift scheduling and rotations, no significant ability to define your own hours. Again, not unique to BAE but to the contract.
