Wonderful people, but disappointingly little reward and recognition for good performance

I worked at BAE Systems UK

Pros

A very friendly and supportive working environment

Cons

Virtually no budget for formal promotions. The company were only too happy to "reward" good performance with extra roles and responsibilities, however associated pay and grade rises were rarely forthcoming.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sort out the company's attitude to FINANCIAL reward and recognition or you will continue to lose your best talent who have no option but to leave.

    Political and bureaucratic with poor leadership

    I worked at BAE Systems UK

    Pros

    Good pay and pension, holidays flexible working with some some very motivational staff which I really enjoyed working with. A good starting place for a career

    Cons

    Political bullying culture is still evident. Process over common sense Health & Safety made. Bureaucracy gone mad underpinned by unnecessarily complex processes which results in process being adhered to but little of value delivered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage with all your staff, stop swearing and shouting be act like a senior manager and not a night club bouncer! Have a plan which is credible and that you can deliver - accept that you just might be wrong for once!
    Also accept that luckily not everyone is like you and that other people have knowledge and good ideas too.
