    Large, stable company that makes you feel appreciated and cares about employee wellness.

    I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is based on location There are multiple ways to communicate Colleagues and senior employees are always willing to help when they have spare time You're not expected to know everything on Day 1

    Cons

    Everyone is busy, so it can be hard to set meetings Tracking down information can be difficult because BAE is a large company, and only certain people know certain answers There's a lot to learn and your first few months will feel like you're drinking from a fire

    Pros

    Large company so there is room to move around if you are proactive In general there is good work/life-balance without a lot of pressure to build the business - unless you are in business development Wide differences among business units so you can have a variety of experiences within one company.

    Cons

    Large company can be very difficult to navigate unless you have the right sponsorship Functional offices are often understaffed/over-worked.
