Talent Acquisition Lead (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – April 26, 2017
I have worked for BAE for 21 years. I've learned a lot during my years with BAE. The hardest part of my job, was the constant restructuring and reorganizing of the business. When I joined the company it was mission oriented and had a clear vision. I enjoyed working with my internal and external managers supporting there programs, and had great success standing up new programs, and supporting surge recruiting efforts.

The front office was less likely to maintain good communications with the folks on contract at the off-site location. Some of their policies were in effect just paper - Corp didn't follow through on what was published.
Operator (Current Employee) – Kingsport, TN – April 21, 2017
Management allows certain employees run the show for a whole department. Worked a variety of schedules to accommodate another employee who was equal to me. HR condones the actions of the employee. They speak as if they want the employee gone but with given information about discrimination they do nothing about it.
Watch Floor Manager / Senior Intelligence Analyst (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – April 21, 2017
Solid company, proud to have worked for. Enough movement through the lower ranks of the company as well as the possibility to move around as needed for a job. Limited again to locations on the east and west coast for most jobs.

Accounting Rep IV / International Payroll (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – April 11, 2017
Overall the company is good to work for. They support a lot of charities and veterans. The atmosphere has definitely changed in the 30 years that I have been with them. It was more of a family feeling company way back in the beginning. Now it is all about the bottom line.
Free soda and juice in our office. Able to telacommute
thinks technology is always the best when sometimes you have to go old school.
A good job, while it lasted. Firm was outbid for the follow-on contract with the military. The actual work was creative and my work on a prototype vehicle was challenging and fulfilling. The hardest part was keeping up with the military's ever-changing requirements. The plant was closed and the entire workforce was laid off.
SIGINT Analyst (Current Employee) – Reston, VA – April 4, 2017
My experience is as an employee in Afghanistan. The project managers are great. There is a great level of professionalism. The only drawback to the whole deployment in Afghanistan is that corporate does not understand the limited condition for network access. The want training done with computer videos. But the internet is slow. We don't have scanners and they want things scanned. the little things that prove corporate is out of touch. But, for the most part this company has people that take care of us out here. A typical work day in Afghanistan is 12 hours a day everyday. We are given 29 days break a year. Transportation to Dubai for international flight is 1000.00 then you pay from there to get home. BAE does not pay for your trip home. The cut cost to win the contract and they passed those cuts on to the employees in Afghanistan. No paid vacation and 401K matching.
Great people, great benefits for Afghanistan
No paid leave and no 401 K matching for this contract
