    I have been working at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A great industry to be in. Plentiful cutting edge technology. A lot of high end clients. Global recognition. A good overall vision but lack of implementation.

    Cons

    Leadership or lack there of. From the top down the company makes it sound like things are heading in all the right directions. From the bottom up we see otherwise. We, the workers, have plenty of questions and concerns that simply get shrugged away and told “we don’t have an answer for that at the moment” and we never hear back from there.

    Advice to Management

    Be open. Stand up for your people.

    Pros

    BAE AI has top security analysts and product staff that understand what is key to improve security for a company.

    Cons

    There is a strong bias towards UK based talent and processes, even when there are better options.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on supporting and growing talent in other countries, and take look at streamlining legacy processes that are based on defense contractor heritage.

    Pros

    BAE is a great British Company, with a heritage and experience in the defence and cyber areas.
    Excellent Graduate programs, with full support for your career
    Can solve any customer requirement as long as it falls in to a specialist area and customer has a lot of budget

    Cons

    AI has an identity crisis, not sure what it is as a business
    While this is being figured out the market is passing us by, competitors are getting stronger and what is currently offered as a service or product is outdated

    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
