    Pros

    Having worked for many years in A&D with a spectrum of companies, BAE Inc. has demonstrated an outstanding level of leadership and vision at all levels.

    Cons

    It is a big company with lots of process but that should be expected with any major A&D.

    Good company overall

    Nov 2, 2022 - Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Company is doing a great job with respect to overall management, diversity, learning opportunities, company culture, and benefits, particularly during the last several, very challenging years.

    Cons

    Average pay, and good benefits, but no significant perks unless you are director or above. Good amount of personal time off, but also pretty thin on employees for the amount of work to do, so people often have to schedule time off around projects and other work, rather than take off when they want. CIO still needs to improve demeanor to truly be accepted by workers.

    Great company to work for

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I have been with BAE for about 6 months now and I will say it has been one of the better opportunities that I have had. The pay seems comparable for the area of work and what you do. The staff at my site are mostly engaged and like their work and the company.

    Cons

    There are issues with all large companies and their shared services as it can detract some of the for the inabilty to have that more personal interaction. As it operates on government contracts there is no certainty that your job will exist if the contract is lost.
