"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."

"If you go into the company as a direct and can walk on water you have a good chance of staying and the work is good, but if you go in as contractor, be prepared to only a 6 month contract and your out the door, but still the work is good if you are good at Combat Vehicles and have a DoD clearance."

"A great company with great employees. Safety if of the utmost concern due to the volatile nature of the products produced. The company is growing and modernizing at a phenomenal rate and should be poised to do even greater things in the near and long term."

"This could be a great company to work for if some changes were made. In my position we are responsible for everything with no authority to make anything happen. It’s difficult to excel and be successful because the SLT have become stuck in their ways of management which are outdated and not in line with the generation at hand. The workforce has to incentives to progress and be great so we receive subpar results at best."
