    Very Interesting industry
    Interesting software
    High profile client list
    Great graduate training program

    difficult to improve process in such a large organisation

    Poor post implementmentation support unless based in Dublin or Boston

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with staff appropriately and follow up - not merely issuing powerpoint presentations listing the gripes from staff to give the impression of listening.

    Pros

    Great benefits and excellent work environment

    Cons

    Mentoring system is the worst experience and it limits your capabilities. Doesn't count your hard work and only evaluate your work performance. No membership training among the members. Only work, work and work.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen each members' opinion. Senior employee might have more experiences than others, but it's not the only opinion you should count on. Always look other sides.

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

    Pros

    * The people you work with are generally young, bright and enthusiastic
    * The work is challenging - Detica works on the theory that the people they hire are smart enough to cope and work things out so they tend to throw you in the deep end, fine if you don't mind a challenge
    * Detica is top of their class in the things that they do well

    Cons

    * There are some things that Detica simply don't do well but they'll try them out for a while
    * This is not a management consultancy, it's a technical consultancy. As long as you're technical you'll enjoy it
    * The merger has caused some admin issues in the US offices that didn't really reasonate back to the head office in the UK for a while. Things are definitely improving, but it's still not the slickest beast!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on working on the admin and ops side of the business - we don't much like being left in the dark.

    Pros

    The location is convenient and opportunities for advancement are great. The workforce is pretty young, and there is positive energy all around. The work is interesting and employees are freely encouraged to contribute their ideas. There are happy hours and the camaraderie among the employees is very good.

    Cons

    The starting salaries are somewhat low. There is also a merger taking place that might affect the work place in the future, though this has not yet happened.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that they offer better salaries to attract better candidates. I would also suggest that they improve the HR offices; they have lost some candidates through poor performance with HR personnel.

    Pros

    Company is poised to significantly grow in the United States given commitment by senior leadership in the UK. However, the company may shift to be more technology driven vs. policy driven.

    Cons

    Lots of turmoil over the last few years after than transition from DFI. Things have improved and seem to be on the right path but only time will tell.

    Advice to Management

    "Walk the halls" and listen to what the junior staff are doing and you may learn something. Be wary of senior officials coming in who think they know how this business works who have not "grown up" in it. Be patient.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    People in staff position are nice. Used to have a good work environment but not really the case anymore. Good resume builder for Grad school.

    Cons

    Terrible communication, company in the flusher since merger. This has not been a smooth transition. Salaries are low (but to be fair may be getting better although I expect bonuses will tank offsetting that)

    Advice to Management

    Pick a plan, stick to it. Stop jerking company and people around. Stop lying. This is a disaster needing a turnaround. It is no longer the great place to work it may have once been. The sooner you start admitting that the more credibility with remainging staff you will have.
