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.

    Approves of CEO

    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.
