Best company I have worked for, supportive culture of management which drives sustainability & continuation in a genuine attempt to find solutions and better ways of progressing current practices. (Not just a company with a few 'zero' slogans and dot point cardinal company values to recite)
Pros
Fantastic work/life balance & flexibility.
Cons
Can get the odd loose nut in management occasionally and a bit soft on underwhelming employees

Screening process is intense but once you're in it's a very professional environment. On the job training towards advancement available. Safety number one priority.. just a good place to work.

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.

It is a good company to work for & strongly emphasises flexible working arrangements as well as diversity & inclusion at work. Always looking for ways to expand the Australian businesss. They also provide opportunities for Engineer Graduates through their Graduation Scheme which is fabulous & also give options to be able to work overseas as well as interstate. I have enjoyed working for this company.

Cons
Not bidding for the right Defence work

Really enjoyed working with this company. Even though i had to travel two to three hours a day to and from work i didn't have any problems of getting up and going to work. Always looking forward to the new challengers each day brings.
