Was responsible for all employee's facilities needs, conference rooms set up, ordering coffee and supplies and any problems or emergencies that may occur on the premises . Was also responsible for all inside facility issues dealing with building management and outside venders. learned how to adapt in stressful situations, deal with all different types of personalities. And have great working relationship with my coworkers. Management outstanding, my managers supported me my entire career, and gave me every tool I needed to be successful. The hardest part of the job was staying loyal to a company for so long, that later through the years made changes that benefited them instead of the employee! Most enjoyable part. The People I worked beside, did odd things for, and help me through out my career. They were my second family!
HR Operations Administrator (Former Employee) – Kuala Lumpur – 16 April 2017
It is a valuable experience for me to have been working in a big multinational company. I also had fun during my working at the company as my team leader and teammates are supportive and cool, but we all were committed and focused to our tasks. The company gives importance to work life balance. Hence, we were all seem to have a good stress management and time management. We also manage to maintain good relationships among the employees in the company as we have social events once a month or once in two months.
Professional Services, Security Consultant (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – 28 March 2017
I learned a lot from this company and the environment, especially in managing projects. It was a great team with lots of support. Although the business was beginning to get less and less busy during new technology transitions, it was still full of opportunities to learn.
Administrative Assistant, Receptionist (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – 15 March 2017
I am currently working at BAE Systems. The company culture is great. We have perks. Each week we get fresh fruit and soda. The people are very friendly. The hardest part of my job is that there is a lot of down time. That is the main reason that I am looking for a new position.
Everyone's experience of a company is different. I had a rocky start where I was supposed to start in Gloucester but due to clearances or lack of as a graduate I found myself sent to Guildford. I spent a gruelling year and a half travelling there but what kept me going was the work and the team I was working with. I would not change it for the world and eventually moved there to retain the role I found.
That start may have out put people off but you have to remember that it is a consultancy, it's part of the job description (not to mention written into the contract that you may be made to travel).
The culture I have always found to be friendly and considerate of abilities and levels. There are plenty of good quality corporate events and opportunities to socialise.
All round it was a great place to start my career and I have (and currently continue to) thoroughly enjoy my time there.
The product in itself was a great concept. They tried to take to a commercial market and it was not ready. The installations floundered but they kept moving ahead. You had to use your own credit card for travel and it would take three months for reimbursement.
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – London and Guildford – 14 October 2016
I have learnt an incredible amount in the last six years. Having started as a fairly junior developer, I am now leading an international team. The environment is challenging and you are surrounded by people that you can learn from.
Great company to work with. Great working environment.
Network Infrastructure Engineer (Current Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – 20 September 2016
Reviews have become a regular part of our online search routine. Similar to how people use reviews to make a purchase, plan a trip or choose a restaurant, job seekers also reference them as they research potential employers. A career change is one of the biggest decisions we can make, which is why 83% of people say employer reviews impact where they apply.
JAVA Developer (Former Employee) – Leeds – 20 July 2016
Taken on as a Java Developer and learnt lots of good procedures such as formal code reviews, Agile and unittesting.
Following that many developers got moved through into a new support department. The training on what we were supporting was not really sufficient to do the role effectively, it was difficult to find effective help within the company, making the role hard.
If you like challenges and working harder than is probably good, you may like this place.
Procurement Manager (Current Employee) – London England – 16 June 2016
At BAE, my colleagues are amongst the most intelligent people I have worked with throughout my career in consulting. BAE is a dynamic company and having the flexibility to work from home, at times, is a good benefit.
IT Auditor (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – 17 May 2016
My department in Internal Audit was a revolving door of unknowing applicants that quickly find opportunities anywhere else that is hiring. Audits are disorganized with the goal of finding issues, not at bettering the company's processes or security posture, and the department has a bad reputation among others in the company. This is something you might expect within Internal Audit, but this disdain you receive at this company is exponentially worse. Aside from the problems of this department, the company is generally still very fragmented from the larger BAE Systems as a whole, so you feel very much that you are working at the 400-employee SilverSky with no room for advancement or cross-channel opportunities within the larger company. Management tends to only be concerned with their own management responsibilities and no one is concerned with the problems within IT Audit, nor the larger problems or outlook of the company as a whole.
Regular work hours with no overtime expected, Industry standard benefits, Accessible office location to both Raleigh and Durham
Departments function independently, Management is not transparent, No remediation of problems, Half-baked acquisition with parent company ready to dissect and sell you off to the highest bidder
Service Delivery Manager (Former Employee) – London – 22 March 2016
My time at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence was good during the early years when it was Detica, however over time it has become more bureaucratic and penny pinching.
Strict rules have been enforced to cheat people out of bonuses even if they are performing very well (just not exceeding expectations) and you cannot trust anything a senior manager tells you unless it is in writing.
Also you cannot be promoted unless you brown nose the required individuals, it's not enough to just do your job well and carry out tasks required of the level above.
Good salary and usually good social life
Bureaucratic, distrustful senior management, brown nosing required for promotion
