    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is competitive. However they you donot become vested in your 401k until your 3 year mark with the company. Which can be hard to do with contract work.

    Cons

    Only 4% match 3 year vesting 401k. Slow promotion. Hours can be ridiculous!! Every weekend with a day off during the week...sucks

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people to compete the current mission before taking on more work.

    Rewarding work Salary typically higher than other similar defense companies. Proficient workforce

    Cons

    Aggressively tight schedules Cannot obtain enough time with Subject Matter Experts

    Advice to Management

    Reward the Subject Matter Experts in the company to retain their services. I am aware of several situations in which Subject Matter Experts have left BAE Systems because he/she was constantly called upon to work long hours, as no one else could perform the work. This is a major issue.

    Pros

    Harassment free workplace. Hostile work environment is taken very seriously. Ethical behavior is also taken very seriously. 401K match is really good.

    Health insurance is available but expensive. If you're really healthy and never get sick you're probably fine. Cost cutting is the number one priority in every department.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the employees more, they might stick around longer.
