Featured Review

I worked at BAE Systems USA for more than 10 years

Pros

Great location, friendly staff, plenty of training opportunities. The Lead-in-Fighter facility is modern and well equipped. They are always looking for opportunities to expand the business which... provides many employment opportunities.

Cons

Due to them being a defence contractor, wages can be at the lower end of the scale for certain roles. They will load you up with work and not reward your efforts.

Advice to Management

Salary reviews need to actually mean something. The current system does not work. When you give people additional responsibilities outside their PD, the remuneration needs to increase inline with the... additional work, otherwise people don't feel valued and leave (like I did.
