    I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Good team atmosphere.

    Cons

    The top tier chain of command had clear favoritism. Pay was not competitive with the region. Once you're hired very hard to get a raise unless you apply for a different position(can't move on from current position for a year even if its just a pay band increase).

    Lab managers just want to move up, so they don't care as much as they should about their employees, just making numbers, no matter the cost. HR is a joke, especially if all the managers are good friends with them, you have NO say in anything

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule as long as you get your work done.

    Cons

    Absolutely no meritocracy instilled. You are told to do your work quickly and to sacrifice accuracy . Guidance documents are not helpful and very confusing to navigate. Training is rushed and doesn't apply to actual tasks. Even during the interview, they state that most technicians don't stay at the company more than 3 years. No leadership and career development. Absolute waste of time and the pay is abysmal.
