Accountant (Current Employee) – Nashua, NH – February 26, 2017
The people who work here and the mission are amazing, however the middle management of this company will be it's demise. Career underachievers are promoted into low-level supervision jobs and stifle any innovative and original thought.
Ever been incarcerated? This is the closest thing to it, except you're free to go home after you pull your 12 hours for the government. Maybe get 4 to 5 hours of sleep (if you're one of those guys with other responsibilities at home.) Get in a department with the right sheriff in town.
Finance Manager (Former Employee) – York, PA – February 17, 2017
BAE recently cutting employee vacation and benefits. Lack of holidays.
Long hours typically 80 hour weeks. Uneducated leadership in finance only promote FDLPs that do not have the basic qualifications to be a level 1 analyst let alone high level manager. Constant scrutiny from customer and audit failures. Tools super outdated creating manual processes. High stress and lack of educated leadership creates hostile work environment constant arguing over path forwards. Typically choosing the wrong path.
Low raises. Do not work here.
Long hours, no profit sharing, accured PTO, terrible tools and processes
I worked there as a contractor for about 2 months after the 3rd week management was demanding we increase our work productivity when there was not enough training to complete the work. If you're not who they like they will make you out to be the worst employee. They will only "train" you if you keep making the same errors when it could have been explained correctly the first time. And permanent employees are not willing to help you.

Operating Tech/Mechanic (Former Employee) – Lemont Furnace, PA – February 1, 2017
I would still be at this job if they didn't move operations to another area to save money. Great atmosphere with hard working employees and management was fair and interacted very much with employees. Good money and great schedule.
Welding Supervisor (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – January 30, 2017
I came here right after high school and started as a welding apprentice. I have been given opportunities to earn money that allowed me to buy my home. This job has also allowed me to travel to California, Hawaii, and Florida for work. But with every rose that has its thorns, this shipyard has a few of its own.
Good pay, friendly employees
Union has spoiled people, hard working people still work hard while laziness has no repercussion
Very productive on any task. Work well with others. Never had a problem with any other personel on any tasks.
SCA Engineering Tech II (Current Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – January 29, 2017
Been with BAE for 6 years and have not advanced and several others there have maxxed out their advancement due to company doesnt look at skilled work. Rather see a person with a degree and no background in what ever it maybe in have a management position.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Filton – January 28, 2017
As a US ex-pat I was well respected and was able to easily integrate with my colleagues at British Aerospace. Management was very supportive. The workplace culture was all business, as expected but, the team also knew how to have fun. Everyone took ownership of their assigned workload and delivered on time.
Travel allowance for ex-pats
Post-contract support was not delivered as promised
Full-Motion Video Analyst (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – January 27, 2017
The position was in the middle of the Metro-DC area. There was a ton of traffic (daily), rude drivers, daily accidents, parking lots are nightmares and you always get some kind of ding on your car no matter what you do. The positions was a fulfilling one, fast paced, and exciting but the schedule was so bad that the employees had to print out the schedule for the entire yearly just to know when to show up to work and the schedule flipped from days to nights every other month.
