Typical day, they try and reinvent the wheel. What I learned, is you need to be a good back stabber to progress. Management is way to top heavy and getting heavier. Great guys to work with, actually workers not pencil pushers. Hardest part is finding a brick wall to endlessly bash your head against. Most enjoyable was leaving to work somewhere else.
Pros
its a job
Cons
over managed

With all positions I have held throughout my career, I have had the ability to communicate confidently with the Team Leaders, Business/Client Stakeholders and Senior Executives. I quickly build and unite teams towards common objectives with my enthusiastic personality and communication skills. I have been responsible for planning and implementing work activities according to strict policy and procedures. This has been achieved through careful planning and commitment through the stewardship of my team and drive and enthusiasm for my profession. I actively cultivate my relationships with team leaders and identify and engage mentors to develop my skills (if required). In my private sector experience to date, I have been responsible and accountable for the provision of correct and timely information to all my direct and indirect managers. I have a proven track record in communicating to my team leaders and providing impartial and forthright advice. I critically analyse my own performance and seek feedback from my Manager. In addition, I ensure that the outcomes for which I am responsible have documented processes put in place that are auditable and accountable. The knowledge and experience I have gained by working on various Teams within the BAE Systems has given me a solid foundation in managing expectations of stakeholders, working collaboratively and efficiently with various professionals and harnessing a collegial working environment.
Pros
Exceptional training and learning environment
Cons
Would have like to stay but contract finishes2015

Cons
pulling apart a dirty old machine

I got all of my licences working for Tenix/BAE, I was employed here for 6 years, I was acting Team Leader for a short time and really enjoyed this role as I was classed as 'hard but fair'' & got the job done, I was awarded several awards for my work. Co-workers were all great especially working in a male dominant environment.
Pros
Assigned to courses to encourage work knowleadge
Cons
They keep changing hands.
