    I worked at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    BAE places highly intelligent and motivated people into leadership positions at the contract sites and does not micromanage from the corporate office. When I began working at BAE in 2011 the pay and benefits were great. The 14 hours of PTO was nice too.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge working here came from the disconnect from the corporate office and the employees working at offsite locations. As budgets became tighter and pay and benefits began decreasing the corporate office was holding happy hour meet and greet events. The lack of stability caused me to look for employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to explain to the workforce that you and everyone in the corporate office is taking the same "haircuts" that those working on contracts are

    Pros

    The vacation is good and the hours roll over year to year so you don't lose them if you don't use them. Also, the schedule is generally so flexible!

    Cons

    This is probably the same for most companies, but I feel like I'm underpaid for how hard I've worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The little things matter to your employees. Like buying lunch every once in a while means a lot!

    Pros

    Nice company and people to work with. Also very interactive social events happen to know inter division BAESystems mates and good Financial services product AML,CC and Debit card fraud detection,PEP and sanctions related products and Insurance fraud related products available.

    Now slowing being structured and senior management not upfront to the employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more structure and common platform for various divisions

    Pros

    Very Interesting industry
    Interesting software
    High profile client list
    Great graduate training program

    Cons

    Very little learned from each implementation with repeated mistakes
    difficult to improve process in such a large organisation
    Very England-centric
    Management is continually changing
    Poor internal management communication
    Cliquey
    Poor post implementmentation support unless based in Dublin or Boston

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with staff appropriately and follow up - not merely issuing powerpoint presentations listing the gripes from staff to give the impression of listening.

    Pros

    Great benefits and excellent work environment

    Cons

    Mentoring system is the worst experience and it limits your capabilities. Doesn't count your hard work and only evaluate your work performance. No membership training among the members. Only work, work and work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen each members' opinion. Senior employee might have more experiences than others, but it's not the only opinion you should count on. Always look other sides.

    Bright people, challenging work

    Current Employee - Consultant
    Current Employee - Consultant

    I have been working at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    * The people you work with are generally young, bright and enthusiastic
    * The work is challenging - Detica works on the theory that the people they hire are smart enough to cope and work things out so they tend to throw you in the deep end, fine if you don't mind a challenge
    * Detica is top of their class in the things that they do well

    Cons

    * There are some things that Detica simply don't do well but they'll try them out for a while
    * This is not a management consultancy, it's a technical consultancy. As long as you're technical you'll enjoy it
    * The merger has caused some admin issues in the US offices that didn't really reasonate back to the head office in the UK for a while. Things are definitely improving, but it's still not the slickest beast!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on working on the admin and ops side of the business - we don't much like being left in the dark.

    Satisfied Consultant at Detica (Arlington, VA)

    Current Employee - Consultant in Washington, DC

    I have been working at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence

    Pros

    The location is convenient and opportunities for advancement are great. The workforce is pretty young, and there is positive energy all around. The work is interesting and employees are freely encouraged to contribute their ideas. There are happy hours and the camaraderie among the employees is very good.

    Cons

    The starting salaries are somewhat low. There is also a merger taking place that might affect the work place in the future, though this has not yet happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that they offer better salaries to attract better candidates. I would also suggest that they improve the HR offices; they have lost some candidates through poor performance with HR personnel.
