Best job I ever had. Shame the politicalWinds shifted and thousands got laid off myself included. Had hoped to retire from there but not my choice. Also was interviewed to return years later and lied to by management no one laid off got hired back. Except pets.

If you are a contractor like me you are up against a job for life culture, very very "Woke" environment, endless pointless meetings, a lot of people really have no function, a lot of "Data Gathering" with no outcome.
Pros
Flexi Time
Cons
More interested in being "Woke" than building Submarines

This job is ok but they are constantly taking something from us. They took away overtime and profit sharing and the pension. They lowered the starting pay wages. They hire babysitters who don't know what to do and they expect us to be grateful. They give out cookies 🍪for appreciation and bonuses. Like really.
Pros
Easy money air conditioning clean decent health care
Cons
Incompetent management issues, lack of listening to the employees who knows the jobs better than management.

Bad management and culture.

A typical day is a 12 hour shift with motivating work. It is difficult but rewarding and you build amazing connections with many people in the intelligence community. Due to their current contract, the pay is not as great compared to other contracting jobs in the area. Its a great foot in the door job but can definitely take a toll on your family and personal life. Personally, I had a great experience with management but others may not say the same.
Pros
Motivating, career-building
Cons
Shift-work, low pay compared to the other averages in the area

BAE Systems is a great place to work, I really enjoyed my projects and team I worked with. However from a corporate culture perspective there was a lot of managing up and little actual problem solving or accountability within the company or management. When there were production problems or other program issues there is a ton of finger pointing and CYA, which is generally a by product of a lack of accountability and years of silo building.
Pros
Great people, meaningful work
Cons
Lack of visionary leadership or a strong central culture.

You can pretty much do whatever you want here if you push often enough. Management is generally hands off but open to talking and can provide whatever resources you need. Promotions and raises are sparse, but it's a fantastic company to start your career.
Pros
Amazing people, endless opportunities
Cons
Hard to progress in your career

Company feels very stifled by its own processes. There’s not much thought given to creative execution of goals, but that doesn’t always matter. Overall, it’s just meh.
Pros
Flexible work hours
Cons
Low PTO, no sick days

Woke liberalism and political correctness are ruining this company.Upper management does not tolerate ANY dissenting opinions.Makes you wonder if BAE is really building military combat vehicle for America's enemies, the Chinese.

Gotta know the right people for advancement , union is on a buddy system clean place to work and clean air. Human Resources is constantly in rotation because they can not keep anyone in the positions. Nobody knows what’s going on except for operators on the floor but salary will not listen. So they implement change after change with no progress. Security stinks more break in’s in the parking lot in the last year then ever. Union has done more about that situation then the security dept. in the building who is clearly employed to do this job.
Pros
Can work independently
Cons
Lack of advancement

BAE is an honorable company as we work for the DoD. They provide a lot of opportunities for anyone who wants to participate in them. They have a good PTO program and with a flexible work schedule, it’s easy to take personal time without having to use too much of your PTO time.
Pros
Programs for volunteers
Cons
Young inexperienced management
