    I worked at BAE Systems USA for less than a year

    Pros

    Merrimack location has cool research and projects going on if you can get involved. The 9-80 work schedule was nice for having every other Friday off. Work with a lot of smart people. Employees are great to work with

    Cons

    Sometimes slow finding work without a security clearance. It really depends a lot on who you are working with. All the interns were packed together in the same room. It was sometimes hard to focus around so many other interns that spent half the day talking with each other. I don't feel like most interns were very productive due to the lack of work and environment. I frequently asked full time employees for small projects or things to work on. The amount of activities and presentations for interns didn't help. I feel like a lot of people went because it was a change from the monotony of not having much work to do or spinning their wheels without clear direction. I know some interns that had a lot of rewarding work to do, but that didn't seem to be the norm.

    I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, 401k match, 9/80 schedule, and great programs to work on.

    Cons

    Lack of culture in the support functions (engineering is great). Management seems inexperienced in human interaction (belittling is a form of constructive criticism). Unclear goals for promotion attainment. Nepotism.

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flex time to let me work when I want to. A 9/80 (or alternative) work schedule to provide 3 day weekends every other week. Good benefits. Great coworkers. Great furniture. Good hierarchy manager and lead structure to allow for help from multiple directions. Everyone is for the warfighter and not for BAE, which focuses us on the customer, not management. 1

    Cons

    Over the last 4 years BAE has slowly rolled back some great benefits. Weekly to Bi-weekly pay periods and stating there's no cost difference (what about payroll??). First 10 hours over 80 hours are free - we get no pay (4 years ago we did! ). They've removed the best Traditional health insurance program. If you are really good at your job, a golden goose, you'll constantly get pulled back to the same program which could be great, but if you don't like that program then that will push you out of BAE.
