Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Portsmouth, South East England, England (UK)

I have been working at BAE Systems UK full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Very good engineering firm
Some very good people to work with/for
Interesting projects to get involved in
Very good graduate scheme

Cons

Rewards seems more tied to length of service than actual performance, leading to many older engineers just coasting by as they collect their remuneration and more junior engineers getting nothing for working hard.
Job grade is not tied to salary, meaning a junior person doing the same job as a senior person will be paid much less.
Internal bun-fighting over things like training and HR as well as a fair amount of confusion over management structure

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure to reward the hard workers and don't be afraid to trim the dead wood.
Engage with the workers further down the chain to find the best practice.
