I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible employer with a progressive approach to running the business while keeping up with the latest organizational development tools and a keen interest in recruiting and retaining talent. Frequent reshuffling keeps a fresh internal environment but takes a toll on employees

Cons

Frequent internal reshuffling mentioned above is a two-edge sword that keeps employees in flux and places a certain stress when it comes to job scurity. Also, salary averages are a little lower than inudstry norm and could use a boost

    "By their behavior, BAE management -- with one notable exception -- did not value human capital."

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Probably the best HR operation that I have experienced in twenty years.

    Cons

    The first-line of management was disengaged from the client and the employees.
    There was absolutely no sense of a corporate identity among the 20-30 BAE on site.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the client; talk to the employees; and treat employees with the same regard that you demanded for yourselves.

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time

    Pros

    - Easy to find a quiet corner and half ass your job and pull a steady paycheck till retirement
    - There is a wide variety of work to be had
    - Competitive wages

    Cons

    - Crappy benefits, especially health insurance
    - In a group that does short projects, management fails to plan properly and eventually they run out of luck and you have to find a new group
    - In a group that does long projects, management fails to plan for the needs of the products a year out, so you're always trying to do a year of work in a month of time.

    Advice to Management

    Get some vision and plan for more than tomorrow.
