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

    Pros

    Possible to maintain a good work-life balance.
    Decent salaries.
    A lot of very good customer facing colleagues.
    Meaningful work.
    Potential.
    New MD shows promise.

    Cons

    Very hard to see how this business can ever thrive under the BAE Systems culture which is an entirely wrong fit.
    More of a focus on numbers than people.
    In the difficult middle - too old and too big to be a cool tech start up, too small to make a real dent against the services and tech giants.
    General muddle - inability to sort anything properly out, like internal IT.
    Slow or no career development - the culture has in-built mechanisms such as rigid structures and annual reviews to keep people where they are and there is a lack of provision of L&D generally.

    Advice to Management

    You've got to improve the support and internal service provision to customer facing personnel: Sort out the IT and get the internal functions to understand their job is to help win and deliver not to put barriers in the way.
    You've hired a lot of good people on the customer-facing side - let them have a real say and stake in the company's evolution - they have ideas and energy.
    Real leadership development is needed - senior managers need to engage the people.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence.

    Interview

    Two stage in person interview. First stage was a 1-to-1 with the hiring manager, intro to team members and a technical questionnaire. Second stage was a presentation to the hiring manager and another team lead, followed by technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a requirement for a storage server, how would you implement the physical storage. Talk about RAID levels.   Answer Question
    • Describe a typical network setup for a small business, with a central location and some remote satellite offices.   Answer Question

    Making the most of your next data breach | BAE Systems | Cyber Security & Intelligence

    That was three years ago. Whilst CEOs are undoubtedly more aware of the risks now, how many have employees who still play fast and loose with customers' personal data, and how many senior managers have that sort of control over their employees' practices?
