      Pros

      Leadership is phenomenal. Incredible autonomy, and they work HARD to keep (good) employees happy in their position--if they aren't they will do what they can to find a better position; retention is huge with our location specifically. Salary is good; benefits are good Work-life balance is always #1

      Cons

      Not as high paying as other contractors (but the environment is better at BAE) Low time off

      Great Company, Limited Progression

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great company to work for day to day, they have been done a great job managing employees work schedules to balance restrictions with productivity and keep everyone employed, which cannot be overstated. My management team is experienced and is willing to listen to my requests. The interview process went smoothly as well and hiring managers negotiated my requests fairly.

      Cons

      Progression appears limited in my workplace. I have not received a raise or new title despite taking on new responsibilities within the office. The ability to move to new locations seems good however upward movement in the same location seems disjointed.

      Pros

      They have access to great technology that makes them pivotal in the defense industry. They also have great benefits and a good talent pool.

      Cons

      Management can focus a little too much on outdated technology. The review system for promotion seems outdated as well.

      Pros

      Has a unique and friendly environment. Various disciplines work together towards an end product. Content is always unique from one task to another.

      Cons

      Sometimes the environment stunts growth when too many disciplines are together.

      Good company to work for in general

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      very positive work culture, willing to train, good experiences with managers and co-workers

      Cons

      Endicott/Binghamton are not the greatest places to live, they can be a little stingy with compensation and pay raises. This also may not bother you, but regardless of what they might tell you when they hire you, you will definitely work military contracts.

      Pros

      Teams are great to work with Flexible and work from home Great work life balance

      Cons

      Pay is better at competing defense companies like Raytheon It’s best to move to NH because of the “reasonable salary” is for NH standards and doesn’t account for MA residents who have a higher cost of living and state income tax

      Pros

      Excellent management, dedication to the mission is the best.

      Cons

      Pay and promotions for new education qualifications are hard to get - they give you some (not a lot of tuition assistance) and then do not provide compensation, wasting their own investment into their employees.
