    Pros

    Definitely employee focused, Continuous learning opportunities, excellent performance appraisal process. BAE ethics and business practices are the best I've seen and that's why I stay with them.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a CON as the current contract environment has a vast amount of new small companies bidding on contracts with low overhead. This at times does affect the number of contracts BAE wins however, BAE talent is where these small companies fall short.

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of responsibility early in your career with a great chance of advancement as the business expands.

    Cons

    More work available than there are people to do it. Leadership is so focused on expanding the business at such a blistering pace without a proportional increase in hiring that a negative impact on quality is inevitable unless things change soon.

    Advice to Management

    Learn when to tell the customer "no."

    Worked in different roles for over 16 yrs. Company is good to work for though some of its business structure needs some work

    To be a software engineer it is required to get a security clearance which affects all those positions. It wasn't like that previously which can hamper some people.
