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

    Pros

    You can pretty much make your own schedule and there are lots of opportunities for overtime

    Cons

    Office is terrible, the pay is worse. Benefits are decent but raises are negligible and salary is barely livable. Upper management is bloated and useless. Nearly all our projects and contracts run in the red

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

    Pros

    Some interesting work, knowledgeable and friendly employees

    Cons

    Company hired many people while current employees sit without work or doing work outside of their scope. Big turnovers every time new VP or director is hired, which don't really help employees. Limited opportunities to move within the company. A lot of minor things are wrong which add up: buildings are kept pretty cold during winter; poor cafeteria quality in terms of options and in some places even food quality; lack of HR help during complex situations, many programs don't have budget or tools to prepare new hires to take on new roles; a lot of it seems to be caused by lack of good communications between the upper management and lower management/ employees.
