    Great career job.

    Operations Graduate (Current Employee) Barrow in Furness, England (UK)

    ProsDecent salary for graduate scheme, plenty of extra stuff to get involved in. So much flexibility in terms of where to have placements and how long to have them. Good opportunities for career progression. Good group of friends established. Flexible working hours, half-day Fridays.

    ConsTown location isn't ideal. Work isn't always challenging. Some things promised/implied that seem to have fallen through. Sometimes it seems like having a degree hasn't helped much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage graduates to get involved on shop floor with tradespeople. Make it clear to graduates that they will have advantages to having degrees. Don't just favour tradesmen.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    BAE Systems invest heavily into early careers!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Barrow in Furness, England (UK)

    ProsFantastic opportunities to experience cutting edge engineering locally and corporately. Innovative environment with focus on development on early careers.

    ConsHas an aged workforce which can make it difficult for young people to be recognised. Although the work is satisfactory, salary is not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave more trust in graduates to deliver ; give more responsibility and autonomy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
