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.
Supply Chain Specialist and Inventory Expeditor (Current Employee) – Coningsby, Lincolnshire – 23 May 2017
As I currently work in the Forces Operations Centre here at Coningsby and also on shift, every day`s work is different and interesting. You never know what problems are handed over from the previous shift and you don't know what the day will bring you. The best part is if you master all challenges during your shift and provide a clear handover to the next shift. That's a very good feeling
Supervisor (Current Employee) – East Riding of Yorkshire – 22 May 2017
The workplace culture is very friendly as there are different types of hierarchy from site directors to catering staff who are all willing and very helpful with new members and also new contractors. Everyone is very polite and willing to go that extra mile with customers.
LandUK Business Systems Training Lead (Current Employee) – Telford, Shropshire – 17 May 2017
I would not recommend this company. I was bullied by director level to the point of having to leave my job. The senior mgt team lead with little direction, with a do as I say not as I do attitude. At working level the people and teamwork is great, the product could be fantastic with the right leadership and vision. Morale is low.
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.
Naval Ships - Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – London – 13 May 2017
Day timings are flexible. The office atmosphere is relaxed. Colleagues are helpful and approachable. Training arrangements are lacking for people not on the graduate scheme. Career progression is unclear for those not on the graduate scheme. Compensation is average, particularly for the London area. Hardest part of the job is the variable workload. Most enjoyable part of the job is the work/life balance.
I know us oldens go on about the good old days, But once Chelmsford joined the bigger group all fun and enjoyment left, with other sites taking the bigger share of jobs/project work. There's alot of jobs out there if your willing to travel. A good flexable system. Management varies alot from site to site.
Good Holiday allowences and a scheme called lifestyles.
very site oriantayed, if you dont shout you overlooked
Work Experience (Former Employee) – Preston – 23 April 2017
BAE Systems are a great employer of huge numbers of staff needed to maintain its productivity as a leading Aerospace contractor supplying to Air Forces and Navies of the World. It is a great place for working for future advancement in engineering or other roles. They are good at training, have a great record of compliance with health and safety regulations and for looking after staff with things like a social club and lots of activities and opportunities such as flying and charity support of events. They are a superb employer for rates of pay and for achieving skills in a job that you can be proud of. They have a great reputation as a fair employer and one that many thousands aspire to work for, they have a good name as an employer and people respect those who work or have worked here.
Site Safety Case Engineer (Current Employee) – Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria – 20 April 2017
The flexibility and the responsibility afforded from the very start make this a good place to begin a career. The main negative is that the job is based in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria. Whilst this will appeal to some applicants, it is not for everyone.
Working at BAE Systems is an experience in itself, with the broad range of Products & Services they have to offer, you will learn a lot in such a short space of time. The breadth of this Company allows exposure to senior stakeholders and big FTSE 100 companies.
The culture at BAE Systems, is one which promotes Diversity & Inclusion, there is always scope for growth and development of their employees is at the forefront of their strategic objectives.
Working in the Internal Audit department, has given me an in=depth understanding of the company and the projects/programmes BAE Systems are involved in.

ASSISTING FINALIZATION OF SHIPS (Former Employee) – Glasgow, Scotstoun – 30 March 2017
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.
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
