I worked at BAE Systems USA (More than 10 years)
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.
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.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA.
Phone interview; called in to a room with around 5 engineers. Mostly behavioral questions, a few technical. The questions weren't very difficult, but it was stressful to be on the phone with that many people. Didn't leave with the impression that it went extremely well or extremely poorly.
