Good job security. Poor pay

Rated 4 out of 5

Good job security, basically a job for life. Poor pay. No real progression unless you move teams or backfill someone. Interesting and diverse projects to work on. A lot of smart people to learn from, but also a lot of sycophancy.

Slow paced and a bit boring

Rated 3 out of 5

Not a great place to work. More of a case that your face fits, rather than aptitude.

Management style is very ad hoc. And no real direction.

Day to day management is lax you can just drift along .


Bonus, share scheme


Long hours

Average company that dont provide adequate support

Rated 3 out of 5

The company barely provided me any training in the 2 years I was there and expected me to get on with things that I had no clue about. This was really stressful at times especially with a pandemic and everyone being busy on phones.


salary (decent), work life balance


poor management, poor training .

Helpful company with a focus on their employees

Rated 5 out of 5

BAE look after their employees, provide a good collaborative environment. The only negative is the HR system is slow and unhelpful. Good benefits and relaxed environment make it a good place to work.

Hard Place to work in

Rated 2 out of 5

Management can tell you what to do at anytime and you are supposed to jump hoops for them when asked terrible people and terrible place and feels like the whole place is stuck in the past
