BAE : Inevitably sterile & institutionalised

A classic example of a quasi Public Sector organisation: extraordinarily weak management: unions far too powerful: expectations - very low.Bottom line - a culture that is broken.

Pros

None

Cons

Far too many to mention !

Good people, awesome schedule options

Great schedule options, decent variety of projects to work on, good people overall. The pay was below what I've seen others in the industry offer but it was a good experience.

What is the best part of working at the company?The pay was the only good part of the job.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Trying to follow the company guidelines while the plant was ran by the union president. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?The company was scared of the union and did not have a backbone, so it was very stressful. What is a typical day like for you at the company?I would go in to everything being done the wrong way. The company wouldn't do anything to make it better.

No Supervision-Changing of managers made everyone stressed .Mangers never on the floor to say hello or take the time to talk with employees

Culture and environment is very poor. No management ever around when needed. Staffing is extremely short working long hours and not enough help. No training self sufficient. Very unorganized and team leaders do not take any responsibility for assigned tasks or offer any training. Everyone is underpaid and all new employees make more than the people that been there for years.

Pros

Flexible schedule

Cons

Sick time and Wellness incentives taken away.No Christmas party, No bonuses or any type of incentives.

Excellent Employer

It was a fabulous experience to be the part of this wonderful organization. The management has excellent care about the employees and work life balance is always preferred.

None productive work place

I don’t recommend that company at all.The managers have no idea what’s going on.But they believe they are the best managers ever.The managers don’t know what work you will get next week.They don’t bother to tell you if you are dismissed next week too.

Pros

Work from home

Cons

Blame game all the time, none productive atmosphere

What is the best part of working at the company?Pay and benefits were slightly above average.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Management environment was convoluted and a tad toxicWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?Poor corporate culture and not in-tune with employees needs. No apparent care for employees long term goals and tenure.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Somewhat stressful as communication between local customers and upper management was 180 degrees out of phase!

Mostly hands off management. Lots of Autonomy

I appreciate my manager personally. I have a lot of flexibility as far as time goes. Downside is that BAE does not want to pay for anything and all work needs to get charged to a contract. So it’s not a true Salary position at all. Also if you are older and a woman, you won’t get many opportunities. They cater to the kids coming out of school and are making them Directors like crazy. When the older folks had to put in tenure and effort to become a big title, the kids just have to show up.

Pros

Flexible schedule

Cons

Lack of opportunities for certain groups

Flexible but poor management

The people I work with are great and the work I do is fairly enjoyable. On the other hand, I was never given any training and managers keep springing policies on me that I was never informed of.

Pros

Gym on site and flexible hours

Cons

Management solves all their problems by throwing employee overtime at it

Relaxed atmosphere, interesting projects.

Great company to build a career. Work done depends on what project you're assigned to. Plenty of flexible / hybrid working options available. Opportunities for international travel and further education.

Pros

Good pay and benefits

Cons

Slow progression
