BAE Systems sucks! It has become a shit hole place to work for.
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, those in 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 (probably to bank-roll the next gala). I view it as my freedom price. I also pity those forced to implement their HR policies and that these people aren't courageous enough to walk away.
