Approves of CEO

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 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.
