No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The salary was fair and the benefits were ok.

Cons

The sole focus of management is money - they do not see employees as valuable assets - only a vehicle to generate money. People a not a long term investment to them.

Advice to Management

If you want to retain good employees, pay a bit more attention to the human aspect of your programs - do not focus solely on how much money hiring this or that person would bring in.

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Supporting the war fighters who protect us. Modified 9/80 work schedule. Broad exposure to various technologies.

    Cons

    Compensation not always inline with responsibilities of position; especially when exceptional performance leads to additional responsibilities without being given additional comp.
    Middle management often fails to follow company values. Expectation (need) to work additional hours beyond scheduled.

    Advice to Management

    Don't portray yourselves as following the ITIL Framework when there is no effective CMDB in place. Review employee workloads.

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is loyal to the customer and does everything it can to abide by government rules and regulations.

    Cons

    This company treats its employees like they are expendable. Any complaint against management is met with threat of removal and subsequent admonitions.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to vet your analyst. Too many of my peers lied on their resumes and are a complete liability while deployed out in the front lines.
