    Pros

    BAE Systems is a strong company to work for. The company support seems to be strong with an emphasis on employee communication.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, they've decided to go the route of downsizing job positions in favor of saving money, in hopes to turn more favorable profits.

    Advice to Management

    Stop juggling upper management positions and show some favor to the employees that are keeping the lights on. Good luck retaining talent when everyone feels expendable.

    Pros

    Some great people still left there

    Cons

    Constant change of sales management and staff
    Lack of understanding of markets and how to implement a go-to-market strategy
    Lack of product investment or validation of strategy
    Still struggling to transition from project to product business
    Tends to view other markets through a UK lens - expects market to adapt to them and not the reverse
    Process over people culture; does not see the forest for the trees

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who do, the customers who buy, the prospects who shop other solutions and the sales/service teams who interact with the market every day
    Make sure any leader who makes a decision impacting peoples lives shows you the data behind the solution - and then validate that data with others several layers down.
    Be up front, honest with each other

    Pros

    401k matching, free snacks, drinks

    Cons

    BAE Systems Applied Intelligence is the epitome of dysfunction. The lack of accountability is astonishing. People are put in leadership roles who want the titles, but who aren't leaders, make bad decisions, and then attempt to hold other people accountable for when their poor decisions have negative consequences that they didn’t have the critical thinking or experience to anticipate. Bad decisions and lack of strategy are also why the company is struggling financially and going through "re-orgs" (the diplomatic term for lay-offs). Some of the most critical functions have been impacted due to lack of strategy and the "leaders" being so far removed from the customers that they are so out of touch with the market. This company is so large that they make it impossible to do business within the commercial space. BAE Systems may be good at defence type work, but they haven't a clue on how to operate in the commercial sector.

    The arrogance, lack of real leadership in management, and upper management who haven't earned their titles have put the company in grave danger. The uncontrolled, narcissistic personalities in management results in unethical behavior and have jeopardised the interests of BAE Systems and its employees. The talent that made the company what it once was have jumped ship. The constant "re-orgs" only re-affirm the lack of strategy/direction and the ineptness of the upper management team.

    Advice to Management

    The execs have to be completely embarrassed by how so many peoples' careers and lives have been affected by their lack of experience, lack of integrity, and an overwhelming lack of self-reflection to realize that they are the problem.
