    Came across this: One of the biggest reasons for our unhappiness is our expectations. Sometimes we expect from others. Sometimes we expect from ourselves. Although the fulfillment of expectations from others is beyond our control, the expectations we have from ourselves are under our control. When our actions fail to match the level of our expectations, it leads us towards unhappiness. So, the next time make sure your actions are enough to fulfill your expectations!

      Great place to work

      Pros

      Culture is fantastic, people are brilliant and the projects that you can get involved in at BAE are genuinely fascinating. A great reputation across the security and defence industry for consulting and working on the most challenging project and programmes out there. Decent work life balance for consulting.

      Cons

      Limited ability to work outside of defence and security type work. 90% of the work is focussed in south east England. Pays below industry standards but I think you get more back in terms of culture, support and interesting work.

      Company still living in the last decade

      Oct 5, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good work life balance available.

      Cons

      Feels like they are still working from a decade ago. Slow bureaucratic processes. Engineering machines running windows 7 which is baffling. Huge lack of investment in IT and infrastructure. Developers aren't given the tools that they require to ensure they do the best job possible. Complete lack of culture. Disjointed middle management. Cost-cutting on every possible corner.

      Not a good engineering company

      Sep 12, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Colleagues are really smart and generally there is a good work culture (work-life balance etc) - Work in some consultancy spaces (e.g. areas of gov) can be really interesting and rewarding in terms of the value you bring - Opportunity to get involved in wider areas of the dev lifecycle early - Consultancy work allows you to work on a variety of projects, which generally keeps things interesting (although tech stack rarely changes)

      Cons

      - Company values management over engineering, it's hard to progress past T4 (mid developer) without direct management experience, and even with this it's twice as hard for engineers to get promoted over general consultant roles like PMs - Salaries are quite low, especially given how expensive our charge out rates are. - Poor distribution of senior to junior members. Because of the high charge out rate the company generally throws loads of grads on things making it hard to maintain good standards, which I think they're starting to see strain over recent years - Company infrastructure is TERRIBLE, it lags nearly daily to the point you can't work, it's hard to get any permissions and generally a terrible experience to develop on - Very bureaucratic, hard to get promoted unless you know the right people (and pay rises are generally pretty poor without a promotion) - Hardly any opportunity to do anything that isn't paid by a client, so you're restricted on self-improvement and improving internal issues - Fix the terrible and largely undefined interview process for experience hires (I've seen so many experienced devs leave and hardly any be hired)
