Approves of CEO

I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Career progression. They really take good care of their deployers. They're there for you when you need them but not so much that it's a distraction.

Cons

It's a tough environment now with government contracting no matter where you are.

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

    Pros

    Huge company that has diverse employment opportunities and allows for growth and promotions. There are government contracts, but most are stable and pre-9/11. Education and other benefits are outstanding! Top-ten companies that hire veterans.

    Cons

    Some gov't contracts are contingency operations based, so there is a level of unknown longevity.

    Advice to Management

    Performance-based & education-based reviews, so your chance for management promotions is available. I've seen this occur first-hand, so work hard and get the right degree/certificates and you will be noticed.

    "One of the better major defense contractors, but ultimately constrained by its size"

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

    Pros

    The company was strongly committed to ethical behavior, and had interesting work. Benefits were very average for this size defense contractor.

    Cons

    Because they use salary bands based on years of experience and aren't eager to make exceptions, compensation for talented individuals will never match what they can make in smaller organizations. Employees in management positions (including low-level management positions such as team leads) were not paid for time spent doing managerial functions such as performance evaluations for subordinates.
