    Pros

    BAE Systems is a good place to work with a good atmosphere. My experience with the managers has been positive.

    Cons

    This company has had some issues with me in the past and some subcontractors. Sometimes they don't give subcontractors enough notice when not renewing their services.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people

    Pros

    Great industry, paid overtime, non-confrontational culture, smart people who don't mind explaining something to you, managers are flexible with working hours, great company if you're raising a family in the area.

    Cons

    Binghamton is a small city that has improved a lot over the years but is nothing like a major metro area. Software projects inevitably hit crunch time towards the end with lots of overtime necessary, process improvement initiatives are half-baked and constantly take the back burner for project needs.

    Advice to Management

    Year after year we have the same conversations about retaining young talent, with very little perceived action. I don't believe opening a satellite office in some city is the solution, but presenting good engineers with the option of telecommuting would cover the issue of the area not being attractive to young people while not adding the overhead of a new site.
