    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's all about the people - and at the Endicott facility, most employees - and nearly all management - are wonderful to work with. It's a hard-working, but generally low-stress culture, where making the right decision is rewarded, and short-sighted decisions are rare. Contractors are treated like real people, as well.

    Traffic is zero, and there is a huge variety of outdoor activities within 45 minutes.

    Cons

    Being part of a huge company offers a lot of security and opportunity, but also comes with bureaucracy and inefficiency. Decisions made at the corporate level can make little sense at a local level.

    Endicott/Binghamton is a small city, so don't expect a metropolis.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to maintain a culture where transparent, long-term decisions are made. Avoid attrition by listening to unhappy employees who might not be bold enough to state their desires emphatically. I've seen a few people leave because they weren't heard, but I know they only voiced their opinion while mumbling at their own shoes. Engineers...

    I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Incredibly relaxed place to work, only had to work overtime one week out of 8 months. Managers truly care about you and your growth. I was on a really cool project using cutting edge front end technologies and frameworks. The deadlines were relaxed and the code quality requirements were very high, which made me grow as a developer at a very quick rate.

    Cons

    There was little to no office culture. The cubicle walls are over 6 ft tall, which eliminates any sort of spontaneous conversation between coworkers. It was nice to have privacy, but collaboration with multiple people was very difficult.
