"I worked for BAE Systems and feel it is a tough company to work for due to the constant work stoppage because of engineering issues. They have great pay."
"Worked for BAE since 2006. It is good company to work for. A family environment in the Irving TX facility. Can't speak for other facilities but I enjoyed working there until the lay off."
"BAE Systems is the good company to work for."
"I have worked for Bae Systems for 8 years now and have found that there is always a challenge to be overcome and also enjoyed trying to better the company by improving any process."
"The company itself is great, the management team is not so great."
"Poor compensation always. The Southern Maryland facility hired a bunch of unqualified good-old-boys and this led to poor quality work, poor supervisions, and a hostile workplace for people who wanted to achieve anything to be proud of."
"I have worked for BAE Systems for 14 months, for two different teams. I was first underemployed, doing basic simple tasks that wasted my time. On my second and current team, I have been micromanaged, singled out, and placed in a hostile work environment. Recently, it was explained to me that my managers personal grudge against me was just something I have to work through. This was explained to me by a director of the company. Even though it is evident and has been proven that there is no justification for it."
"It is a great company to move to a new position. They provide resources and training to expedite your advance."
"It's a great place to work and grow as an aspiring engineer."
"I have been working for BAE systems for almost one year. The employees enjoy a family-like culture which allows them to reach out to their colleagues as well as superiors without any hesitation in case of any problem or concerns."
"Great company to work for. Would recommend to everyone who is looking for employment with a skilled trade."
"BAE overall is a good place to work and I really enjoyed my work. I've held 4 positions there and really enjoyed all of them. But BAE is a defense contractor. If the military budget gets cut, folks at BAE get laid off. It's the nature of the business. For the new folks, be prepared for when that time comes. It's not IF the time comes, it's WHEN."
"I've worked at this company for 10 yrs and find that there is great potential if were not for their management."
"BAE Systems was a successful company before it moved from Santa Monica facility (Lear Astronics, Marconi) to Los Angeles. Soon after the move, it struggled to get new contracts and thus closed its site and relocated back to the east coast. Most of the managers were excellent mentors and very helpful. But, unfortunately, most of the time the engineers were working on too many projects, and not enough help. The company had approximately 1000 employees."
"BAE is plagued with a stiff and dry corporate culture that discourages innovation. Projects are driven solely by budget and schedule; quality and customer satisfaction are seldom considered. Management is often draconian, focusing on petty infractions while tolerating mediocre work performance. Business processes are archaic and redundant where paper forms are printed to be retyped and printed again while Excel dominates as the database of choice."
