Manage team budget, timekeeping. Meets client expectation weekly meeting to discuss progress and DE conflict issue. Gain respect from working colleagues & co-workers The hardest part is when drawing revision change & meeting very tight schedules. The most enjoying part of the job is coordinating with all department meeting budget,schedules.& team work.

I worked for BAE for four and a half years. I spent over 2 years there as a Leading hand so I got a good feel of how management works there. A lot of the time I found it very challenging due to poor management I had to take allot of other peoples jobs on that they would not do. I enjoyed the people there and made some good friends however I did not enjoy working there after four years.
Pros
Wages and benifits
Cons

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

To acchieve what tasks were to be completed for the day. Being part of the heavy lift team there was always something new to be learnt, ect dual lifts, transportation of heavy loads. Management and co-workers,very good. The hardest part of the job was wondering when we were going to be finished up. The most enjoyable part of the job was the conditions we worked in.
Pros
Good Conditions
Cons
Never knowing when we would be finishing up.

Day to Day The day to day tasking very quickly became monotonous and very repetitive, even with job rotation there was a level of stagnation with each role. Learned Get everything, and I mean EVERYTHING in writing before you begin. Almost everyone is willing to throw you under the bus to save themselves. Management Quite dysfunctional. Co-workers Ran around in cliques and would not lift a finger to help even when ordered. Hardest part Dealing with all the egos running round the site, with everyone working toward their own goals. Most enjoyable Satisfaction of a job well done running my own stores
Pros
Close to the snow
Cons
Close to the snow
