From Greenlawn, NY — 01/12/2010

BAE Systems is a great place to work if your main goals in life are: to have a good work/life balance, a long career in the defense industry, and good, but not great pay. As others have mentioned, some areas (including Greenlawn) had recent layoffs. But despite the decrease in workforce, business is still doing decently well given the overall slumping economy.

I truly think that an employee's experience at BAE Systems varies from site to site. In general, most people are nice and will try to help you (even though you may know more than them). But there are incompetent people or people who could careless about the work they do -- it really depends on what group you get staffed in or what projects you're working on.

Opportunities to grow depend on the older generation stepping down; unfortunately, many older employees don't want to retire until 65+ and as a result, opportunities for growth can be limited. But all in all, an above average company to work for.
