A good place to work...Interesting projects.
Senior Technical Illustrator Lead (Former Employee) –  Williamstown VIC9 June 2017
Positive: I worked at BAE Williamstown for 10 years...i was the Senior illustrator lead on the Delos Oiler Project.....Protector....LHD and some input into ANZAC......very interesting products to illustrate.....i feel privileged to have worked on these projects.

Negative: The strange mid management culture...it was a shame to see lazy non involved personnel get promoted to prominent positions....mates rates.
very happy to be away from that.
i was 60 when i was re-trenched 2 years ago but i have successfully found illustrating work as a self employed contractor commercial and defence.
Pros
interesting projects
Cons
very difficult place to get on if you are not ex service.

Terrible
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Henderson17 May 2019
Top heavy management
Poor planning
Unrealistic scheduling
Terrible Purchasing and stores support
Management Continually state that you must follow the correct process and procedures but when the schedule doesn't permit it they then want you to cut corners to try and achieve the impossible. Lack of material planning which does not provide for the adequate provision of tooling required to complete the job.
