"As far as direct management goes, I feel that BAE shines with communication and directness with employees. My supervisor cares about my happiness and career development, and I work on a highly capable team of intelligent individuals. Upper management has some work to do with transparency and willingness to inform employees when major company changes are to happen."

"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."

"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."

"BAE has gone through a lot of positive and negative changes in its IT division and continues to struggle with leadership and stable direction depending on the tower you are in. If you are fortunate enough to get connected with the right people, getting problems resolved is much easier."

"I have been with BAE Systems for 3 years. The work environment is very relaxed and the projects are very much on the cutting edge of technology. Depending on your role you get to do a lot of interesting algorithm development. The environment is somewhat anti social but the work ethic is great."

"Our company didn't really know all of our capabilities and didn't use our area very well. We had good employees, but we were always having downsizing at the beginning of the year, but now we were shut down."
