    Pros

    Opportunity to become an important contributor if you show initiative. Flexible work hours and work from home. If you don't show initiative you won't be handed fun work.

    Salary structure doesn't make a lot of sense

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Compensation, industry standard benefits, good 401K Match.

      Cons

      If you aren't a Global Grade 15 or above your opinions really don't matter. I raised ethical violations to Human Resources, and internal ethics committee with evidence and senior management not only covered it up, during the investigation I was retaliated and my agreed on compensation for my new position was changed. BAE allows certain technical experts literally belittle subordinates especially in the FastLabs business...

      Advice to Management

      The culture in Fastlabs is a huge issue. Allowing unethical behavior is not in line with your corporate message. BAE is not a place where young, and highly talented professionals want to work.

      Pros

      Good benefits are definitely a plus and who doesn’t like the 9/80 work schedule!

      Cons

      Because we’re growing so fast managers are constantly being added. Many of them promoted simply to fill positions. They have no experience in managing or mentoring people nor do they have the leadership skills that are needed to build strong teams. Training is non existent for new employees and even employees that move from one function to another. We do very poorly at this.

      Advice to Management

      Review growth strategy for new managers that include how to communicate with people that work for you and how to actually be genuine about it. If you have to force a smile or speak kind word it’s not genuine and we know it. Teaching them to use the word “team” in every other sentence is not what is meant by this either. Work harder on training plans for employees and ease up a little on metrics that are unattainable.

      Pros

      Your job is secured and the people that work there are a pleasure to be around

      Cons

      Offer low salaries when switching jobs. Onboarding is nonexistent

      Advice to Management

      Issue a business wide onboarding improvement. You're hiring at record high levels, your onboarding needs to make new hires feel like they understand their responsibilities

      Pros

      9/80 Work Week, Exercise Facility, good cafeteria.

      Cons

      Typical big company thing where performance reviews are a bunch of fluff that does not apply to your position, yet you still need to somehow put words to it. Earned vacation accruals, can't take full vacation near beginning of year, end up losing vacation time at end unless your gonna take the final 2.6 hrs or whatever it is on week 52. There is purchase vacation but doesn't come until march. Generally the whole...
