Hi everyone! My name is Angie Baker and I am a second year in the full-time MBA program studying consulting. Before Smith, I graduated from St. Mary’s College of Maryland (the gorgeous school on the river in Southern Maryland) and have worked in IT with Booz Allen Hamilton and in R&D at H.J. Heinz.
Currently, I am an intern in Rockville, MD at BAE Systems Inc., which is one of the largest defense contractors for the US government. While BAE Systems plc is headquartered in London, the North American subsidiary, BAE Systems, Inc is headquartered in Arlington. At BAE, I work with the price-to-win team performing industry and competitive analyses to figure out at what price our competitors will bid and what price we need to bid in order to win contracts. Since I started with BAE a month and a half ago, there has not been a day that I have not been challenged, which is truly amazing.
I created this blog to share with you some of my experiences at my internship and start an open and informal dialogue with you. Feel free to ask me questions about how I got my internship or what kind of fun things I have learned so far.
Thanks for checking out my blog!
