I could not agree more. Horrible corporate ethics with one concern--the bottom line. I was given a raise (in writing), told six months later that a miscalculation had occurred and my salary subsequently was reduced by $300/yr. They can throw corporate galas but can't afford $300 or feel no need to honor their written word?? It seemed too petty to challenge.

Next, my business unit had our accumulated sick leave liquidated--as in, please be advised that in 6 weeks your 350 hours of sick leave goes away. No cash buy-out for these grandfathered in benefits, nothing.

Final straw was not being advised of a salary reduction of 6% for a contract I wasn't even part of. So they paid me less all the while continuing to bill the government at the higher rate--apparently not illegal but underscores what a shady blood sucking company BAE is. The real kicker was that although all my 400+ hours of accumulated paid-time-off was earned at the higher rate, they paid out at the lower one when I quit. Apparently this mega corporation needs the difference more than I do. I view it as my freedom price. I pity those forced to implement their HR policies and that these people aren't courageous enough to walk away.

Well it's 2015, still shady, still a sh*t hole. I can't believe they bring customers to the Nashua facility, it's falling apart, smells and has furniture that looks like it's from the 1980s. The managers I had the misfortune of working for were completely incompetent non-technical dopes. Maybe a good place for recent grads who don't know any better, end of career folks looking for a place to retire and NH residents too far from MA to commute to better engineering opportunities there. Worst job I ever had.
