    I have been working at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    BAE provides so many incredible opportunities, I have learned more during my time here than with any other company previously.
    I work with extremely bright and friendly teams in Gloucester, London and Guildford who work together solving the most challenging problems delivering impressive solutions to our clients.
    Every day there is an opportunity to add value, solve a challenge, make improvements and do something positive. Our core values are Trusted, Innovative and Bold; no matter your level or the role that you’re doing, ideas are always welcomed.
    There has been a great deal of change recently but the MD provided regular communications, transparency, listened and was happy to answer all questions asked.
    In addition, as a single working parent there have been times when I’ve needed flexibility and BAE without hesitation has been more than supportive, I really couldn’t ask for more.

    Cons

    KitKats can be a little too tempting, even if you're not that fond of them

    Advice to Management

    Please bring IT back in house

    I worked at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence full-time

    Pros

    There is a lot to learn. Stepping stone for possibly going elsewhere.

    Cons

    They only train you on what you need to know for the job. They don't promote internal or external growth. They don't pay market average nor attempt to remain competitive. We worked severely understaffed for over a year until they ultimately closed the office. No transparency with management and employees. Constantly expecting more and assigning additional work without extra compensation. Extremely demotivating to work for this company. All intelligence went elsewhere and left the team full of warm bodies to fill seats. Unless you're unemployed, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Management wouldn't even do anything even if I tried to help improve. They were told of their error and, how to correct them. Yet, nothing was done over the course of 3+ years.

    Pros

    cant think of any...was just a bad decision to work for them.

    Cons

    to summarize it in few words...

    "They'll kick you, then they beat you,
    Then they'll tell you it's fair
    So beat it,"

    This is true for a whole lot of people who left.
    This place was a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    you have to pick out the bad apples high in the chain or they are going to continue ruining the place
