BAE Systems was my main job for 35 years, they set me up for life with a great pension plan and shares within the company from when I first started in 1980. Even after 35 years of working there they still provided great benefits and was treated like a member of a big family.

Finance Intern (Former Employee) – Glasgow – 29 June 2016
The average day was very fulfilling. Everyone was friendly even while working under pressure. I learned how to use many new accounting and filing systems while also learning new organisational skills. Management was good for me as i was in daily talks with them because i was managing a project myself..Hardest part of the job was finding files in the outdated filing systems. Easiest part of the job was setting up meetings and talking to people about my project.
Flexible hours system and friendly workers.
Was unable to accomadate me as a part time worker when i had to start back at university
An excellent company to work for with good opportunities for advancement

Excellent management and co workers, good team work. Always looking for improvements and increased governance and cost control. Most enjoyable parts are dealing with other functions outside of finance and team working within Finance. Hardest part is dealing with the impact of political implications on the business.

get your task for the day ahead and left to get on with it. how to communicate with all levels of authority and respect for others,how to work as a individual or part of a team,the management could be firm but fair,the co workers were the ones that made the company a place you enjoyed going to work,the hardest part of the job was managing times for deliveries between runs,the most enjoyable part was knowing that you had done your best and a lot of gratitude from co workers
Caulker/Burner (Former Employee) – Glasgow, SCT – 17 February 2015
Fair managers and foremen who listen to workers on various issues. Highly skilled workforce. Colleagues friendly and helpful. Can on occasion be physically demanding, however a good workforce makes work enjoyable.
Job satisfaction. , The management worked together with us as a team and ensured everybody was well versed on the tasks of the day and the running of the department.
What make your working life easier, is when you can get on with your co workers, which we aimed to do in the engineering department where I worked, we all still got on with our work but had laugh:s and banter through the day,
I would say the hardest part of the job was the boys being made redundant myself include, as it's sad to see the engineering trade disappearing.
Just being an engineer have loved it with a passion all my working days but it's time to move onto pastures new.
Typical days work includes been given daily targets to meet and excel to your best ability. The management could be done better, seems to be a 'us against them' approach at times, like to make things difficult, creating a divide. co-workers are all very helpful with one another. The job however is very enjoyable and satisfying as its good to see your hard work pay off.
