Pros

Large company with good financial record, which will look good on CV. The work is there if you look for it, and you can take a large responsibility from an early stage.
They won't fire anyone.

Cons

Ancient site, ancient staff. It really is stuck in the old times with most employees sitting waiting for retirement. THis leaves so many jobsworths it's hardly worth attempting anything. Most work is spent fighting employees and is completely unproductive. Opportunities are not as advertised; transfer between sites or business units is almost impossible (unlike advertised) and the salary is far less than other BAE business units.
They won't fire anyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Close the gap between 'them' and 'us'. Whilst we're working in terrible conditions with poor salaries they're wining and dining any Saudi in sight. It's a degrading business.
