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

    Pros

    Keeping in mind this is a big company, I would say that this company both preaches and practices a culture of tolerance and fairness like no other. Racism, sexism, other "isms" and general bad behavior are simply not tolerated. This makes for a refreshing work environment where everyone is professional and respectful, at least in my experience. Significant amounts of money are spent on employee training and education and PTO is generous. Raises are small but steady, and seem to at least keep pace with inflation.

    Cons

    Health insurance gets more expensive every year, but what else is new? 401k benefits are average for a big company, but the employer contribution is every pay period, not annual like some big companies have gone to.

    Advice to Management

    None right now.

    I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time

    Pros

    - very entry-level employee friendly
    - large amount of tasks assigned upfront, keeps employees very busy
    - 401K matching
    - ideal for a fresh out of college young professional

    Cons

    They do like to pigeon-hole you into a role. Once I learned all of my assignments, they wasn't too much room for growth. After a while you do get a little bored of the lack of challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for new employees to get involved with the company. Perhaps a job rotation, visits to different facilities, opportunities to learn from mentors of the company.
