    I worked at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work variety, looks good on CV, international work opportunities, work with cool clients, decent benefits of on assignment away from home

    Cons

    Only way up is networking, soft skills will get you further than your technical skills, workforce is an upside down pyramid, there are more managers than anyone else, something of an old boys club. Most of the top talent left years ago leaving a void of technical knowledge. Dont forget to do your weekly time sheets or management will lose their minds. Better of finding out who there clients are and applying there. Too much corporate spiel and propaganda from the top, short term outlook with revolving door CEOs and too many non technical managers. Dont expect to be included in decision making. Pathetic hardware for developers. Expect to spend half your time working through hr processes and sat in unnecessary meetings. Under pay their technical staff, particularly developers. Easier to get promoted by leaving and rejoining.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit a review to Glassdoor. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us, it certainly is a great place to start your career. During the course of the past year or so, we have seen an increased trend of previous employees re-joining the company and hope you will consider doing so, later in your career.
