SAE Inspector (Former Employee) – Fort Walton Beach, FL----Schofeild Contract – December 21, 2013
All ways busy. Had other assigned work besides a QA Inspector, Safety, Environmental, Special Projects Research, Library (Both Books and digital) updating and checking current standings. Update Employees on new standards, and policies. Hardest part was the unrealistic dead lines that where giving out. Meet the time, but if had more time the work would be more complete when turned over to the upper management. The best part was the lower management and the workers got a long and work together to compete the task and deadlines.

Working BAE for was definitely a positive experience and a great start to beginning a profession career. A typical day for me would consist of an early morning meeting with supervisors, to go over our plans and lay out for the day. Next to safely begin our work until our job is safely completed. What I learned at BAE is how to manage and create from base working with metal,and how to properly handle equipment. The management team is Awesome and consistent in assuring that proper conditions are successfully maintained. The workplace culture is very comfortable and quality,and friendly. The hardest part of the job would be the heat, but the most enjoyable part of the job the pay and being able to work in a success and determined group of accomplished workers.

Highly responsible place of business, which makes you feel that you are worth you weight in gold. Pay and benefits surpass many other companies, and the reputation of the company is considered outstanding by most every customer.

Decent workplace, however, you get stuck with no promotions unless you threaten to leave or you know someone. People who deserve promotions and awards do not receive them. People who do not deserve them always get them.

BAE offers a wide variety of opportunities in a variety of defense projects and your experience will differ widely based on which subsidiary you work for. Overall benefits are getting reduced year after year and the company has been unable to address job retention for young professionals. Pay is slightly above average but other benefits such as college tuition assistance, paid time off, insurance, etc. are below industry average. Work is often challenging and generally rewarding.
Good work life balance, Compensation, Challenging Work Environment
Company benefits decline year after year and are below its peers in the industry

Tier 1 Technician Support (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – May 14, 2017
Typical day consisted of very minimal tech issues. Not as much on the job experience i was expecting as far as learning new tech products and issues. Management was slow to relay procedures and processes. Great atmosphere when it came to immediate co workers
Great work atmosphere, flex schedule
politics, managment needs better communication w/ employees
If you live to work this is the place for you, if you work to live you better think twice.
Administrator (Current Employee) – Michigan – May 13, 2017
The work load is very hectic and the hours are long, too long for many and most work off hours and off days as well. A lot of departments are understaffed. There are never ending meetings. They have a mixed lot of managers from very good to very poor, and many in between, but again they are mostly all in meetings all the time. Communication down to employees is good but upper management does not listen to employees up.The work is interesting and satisfying but you never feel accomplished because there is just so much and the metrics are always mentioned as what hasn't been done yet instead of ever relaying to employees how much HAS been accomplished. Many tools to get the job done efficiently are slow or out dated but processes are constantly addressed and evolving for the better.
Compensation is good, they offer a lot of extras if you could only find time to participate.The staff is very diverse.
Hours are exhausting, you never catch up with assignments, never feel accomplished at the end of any day, week or month.
Technical writer (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – May 11, 2017
Requirements were clearly defined, and leeway provided to produce documentation. References were provided as needed. There was a genuine sense of supporting the troops, and a good team spirit among the writers.
Problem with different computer settings caused firnatting to go awry.
Sr. Field Svc Technician (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – May 11, 2017
I thoroughly enjoy working for BAE Systems. They foster a family atmosphere in each department. They train for most entry level positions and once you become an employee you have many resources for advancement available to you.
Lots of learning new ways of getting the job finish fast
