Great work life balance but could be more of a challenge
Commercial Officer (Current Employee) – Samlesbury, Lancashire – 3 January 2017
Typically, my day-to-day work includes managing general correspondence; liaising with internal and external stakeholders; and drafting various documentation both for internal approvals and proposals.
From my three years working for BAE Systems, I have become proficient in drafting bid proposal documentation for US and UK Customers; negotiations for Terms and Conditions; and contract management.
I have met all different tiers of management, some of which are very friendly and approachable whilst some are goal-driven rather than people-driven.
BAE Systems has a good work life balance with a great benefit package and flexi time. However, the work that I have undertaken is not as challenging as I thought it would be.
