Senior Contract Co-ordinator (Current Employee) – Portsmouth Naval Base – 8 March 2018
No 2 days the same in the job role I have. My role is very interesting and I enjoy it very much. I deal with people of all ranks and grades and have received support and advice over the years which has been beneficial to the progress of my career in the last 10 years. I enjoy working alongside the customers, the suppliers and work colleagues as part of a Team. I’ve had challenging days, amusing days and very stressful days but that’s what makes my job a joy to go to each day, just never knowing what the day is going to bring.
Production governance coordinator (Current Employee) – Portsmouth, Hampshire – 13 February 2018
BAE systems is an enjoyable place to work with focused individuals who pull together to achieve key targets as a group. The balance between work life and home life is comfortable and I am happy to be a part of this company.
Project Coordinator - Production Engineer (Former Employee) – Portsmouth – 15 January 2018
After 5 years of working here I can honestly say that this environments moral was very low and this caused problems with productivity and output. underlying conflicts between shop floor and management.
Being a large company can make it very interesting for a career in many different skill sets. There's always opportunities for progression. You have also the opportunity to work closely with the various customers & suppliers getting a greater insite to how others see you & how they work, which can improve not only you personally but how you can improve the work ethics & processes.
Integrated Delivery Team Lead (Former Employee) – Portsmouth – 6 December 2017
A Global Company with a very emphatic ethos towards implementation of its Code of Conduct, but that has a drawback in that at times excessive beurocracy has developed amongst the Management which has a counterproductive effect on what the customer wishes the Company to achieve
My present job can be very rewarding. Due to company conduct and its stance within a growing Engineering environment it has the potential to shape a great future for the next generation. My role requires me to draw on my previous experience as a mechanical fitter and deliver course material to apprentices and naval staff. I am also responsible for carrying out regular learning reviews and creating new courses for the changing market. I also have to follow set ou KPIs to meet the companies needs.
I have been working within BAE systems for just shy of 7 years. I have learnt a great deal about not only marine systems but mechanical systems as a whole. The role of mechanical fitter is very diverse and allows you to experience a whole range of systems from sea water systems all the way to gas turbines.
The employees in the dock yard make working there fun and enjoyable and are often very helpful to new employees with limited knowledge.
The management within the dockyard is not very organised which often leads to delays in materials, work permits and other crucial work requirements.
Unorganized, low pay, sometimes stressful environment
The general day to day life where I work is pretty productive and the balance between work and home life is being fulfilled with a flexi-type scheme
Ive learned everything I know today from this place, being through the apprenticeship to signing my contract to join the refrigeration section within the company. expanding my knowledge everyday as you learn something new everyday which will help you down the line if you progress elsewhere.
The most enjoyable part of my job is you get to meet all different type of people as working on naval ships people are from all parts of the United Kingdom or even around the world. most people are easy to get along with within your working sector.
Operating procedure requires overhaul to improve on the companies poor performance. Friendly staff and customer. Reasonable facilities. The working environment is very safe however it can be difficult to achieve progress due to people playing the system.
Wages always correct and on time
Not enough work, poor and unexperienced management
