    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 have been working at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Opportunities on some really interesting projects. Member of the BAE share scheme. Easy to move between projects. Really lovely people

    Cons

    Limited career progression opportunities. Has been through several re-orgs over the past few years. Opaque performance scoring process. Minimal opportunities for gaining qualifications. Low numbers on the bench make it hard to maximise won opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Make the performance moderation process more transparent. The organisation has a really nice culture, but should look at more ways of providing further opportunities for those who wish to progress their careers.
