I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There was a lot to learn there. If you were in the right department, your supervisor will help you along the way. You will travel a little or a lot, and get to see a lot of neat things! Pay was great! You can be almost whatever you want to in this company.

Cons

They have these things called PDRs (Performance Development Review) which do not help you advance in the company at all. Management just has you do it so they can check it off the list. There will always be someone talking behind your back, so keep account of your activities and be prepared to recount them.

Advice to Management

Training manuals for each job employee is given.
