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

Pros

Over the years the company was a great place and a place where young engineers could learn. Work can be very interesting.

Cons

Over the last 3+ years they have laid off far too many of the most experienced and competent people. Now they plan to do more of the same in order to reduce rates. Our customers are losing confidence in us and our commitment to them. The experience and expertise of employees is no longer respected. Those who have been the most successful and therefore promoted now find their jobs at risk. Those who have not been promoted are safer.

Advice to Management

Think before you loose all of your expertise! It may be close to too late now. You can only manage by the bottom line for a few more years before you destroy all of our capabilities.

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

    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 (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
