BAE Systems offers a great work-life balance and attracts some tremendous talent. If you find yourself in a role that suits you well at a salary you're comfortable with, you'll be well set up. However, mobility through the company and pay increments can come very slowly. If you wind up in a role you're not happy with, it can be difficult to branch outwards. Salary increments for those who are not being directly promoted come slowly and infrequently.
