    Pros

    Company with a very strong pedigree and some very impressive products within the military domain. Getting to work on some very interesting areas and think about potential scenarios with the latest military hardware available.

    Cons

    A company that doesn't reward it's employees well enough in terms of remuneration and promotion prospects. There is the view that you need to have grey hair and decades of experience to be credible so the principles of a meritocracy are not executed well in practice.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your top performers by actively supporting their career and providing competitive salaries.

    Pros

    It was okay. Atleast I had a short commute to the location and my boss was understanding if I was late some days.

    Cons

    It could have been better.

    Advice to Management

    More pay would be nice but I think BAE could offer more for us employees and then the place would be good to work for.
