    Pros

    It's a big company with lots of room to move around and learn. Good benefits package. Luckily I'm on a great team but I imagine the experience could be different on others.

    Cons

    Haven't found much to grumble about so far apart from the nightmare that is parking.

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

    Pros

    Brilliant people, good opportunity to learn new tech. Always so busy dealing with new and interesting tasks. Working from home is handy and flexible hours helps when work loads allow it.

    Cons

    Always so busy, fighting fires with legacy products - the traffic in Guildford is shocking. Work life balance can sometimes be sacrificed - but working from home is an option if your project allows it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing - Its turned around in a few years and results are being seen. Morale is the highest I've seen in years.

    I worked at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Colleagues. In particular some of the more senior staff are fantastic to learn from
    Good Location (For the London Office)
    Lots of faith put in graduates and strong individuals can gain significant responsibility and make promotion cases quickly
    A wide range of projects/products are available at the company (if you are driven enough to battle for rotation)
    Lots of government work and great opportunities for DV clearance
    Good salary at graduate grades
    Are beginning to tackle some of the cons listed below;

    Cons

    Can be very difficult to rotate into a desired job role.
    Quality of some graduates has declined as grad recruitment has increased.
    No 'scheme' to the graduate intake. This often results to new joiners spending large amounts of time on the 'bench'. This is being actively worked on.
    For a tech company - some of the IT hardware is a little dated

    Technical roles like data scientist are paid lower than the average compared to other global companies. Lack of international environment.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good colleagues who supported me throughout my time at AI

    Cons

    Senior managers really seem clueless and don't make any strategic decisions (e.g. divest the failing US business, failing programmes that lose money) and seem happy to break even. So many heads of this and global heads of that, so little actual capability. Business wins are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of everyone with global in their job title. Have a fair promotions and rewards process. Stop charging such extortionate day rates and start winning business. Get rid of the US and make some money.

    Pros

    Exposure to some very good accounts , potential opportunity to develop and gain promotion quickly. You are surrounded by very capable people

    Cons

    Initial career management has not beed good, very hard to get time with my career manager and I was not assigned to a project for almost 10 weeks upon starting.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep in contact with those that have not been assigned to projects straight away. Have a definite roadmap/plan of work for those individuals
