        I am approaching my third anniversary with the company and continue to be favorably impressed with the quality of work, the extremely high quality of the employees, corporate integrity, and mission-focused culture. When I was hired I learned of the "customer-first" mindset and "we protect those who protect us" moniker. I have continued to see that this is more than just a 'bumper sticker' but that the company really does focus on the warfighter, sometimes at the expense of lower margins, etc. That makes me very proud to be part of this company. Most of my coworkers have been here for YEARS, many for DECADES. That was a key factor in my choosing to work for BAE Systems, Inc., instead of a couple of other defense major companies that were actively recruiting me. At those other companies, the folks I spoke with were 1-5 year employees--at BAE Systems, the folks I spoke with were 10-30 year employees!


        It is a HUGE company with three distinct sectors. As a result, the three sectors almost behave as independent companies. We work together, but because of the way the performance incentives are designed for the P&L leaders in each sector, it actually works against the potential for cross-company cooperation.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      Good morning! I had a final interview the other day where I was tasked with presenting a project I was to work on. I presented and was told that my project was refreshing, I anticipated questions, explained my assumptions and there were no questions. In your experiences, is this a good sign? They said they were interested in how I speak and think. Good? Bad? Indifferent? I know everything is a 50/50 shot, but this was the first time I've been in this position, so I'm kind of anxious. Thanks



      I recently completed a 3 round interview. As I didn’t get the job I asked for feedback from the hiring managers. One responded and told me they think I great job during the interview. I was friendly, personable & professional. Provided an depth look into your experience, explained how I can be an asset to the organization/team, and shared my desire to grow and develop along the way. But the main advice was that I didn’t fully or better explain why I left my last company. Any thoughts on this?

      I had a felony 20yrs ago and recently released. It would have nothing to do with these jobs. My history was stellar as industrial sales with engineering background, Now I want sales support positions which I have experience. I interview really well. I wait until an in person interview to bring this up so they have a better feel for me as a person. I am still navigating how and when to discuss this topic. I feel it needs to be brief and then pivot to how my skills can help the company.
