Was responsible for all employee's facilities needs, conference rooms set up, ordering coffee and supplies and any problems or emergencies that may occur on the premises . Was also responsible for all inside facility issues dealing with building management and outside venders. learned how to adapt in stressful situations, deal with all different types of personalities. And have great working relationship with my coworkers. Management outstanding, my managers supported me my entire career, and gave me every tool I needed to be successful. The hardest part of the job was staying loyal to a company for so long, that later through the years made changes that benefited them instead of the employee! Most enjoyable part. The People I worked beside, did odd things for, and help me through out my career. They were my second family!
Professional Services, Security Consultant (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – March 28, 2017
I learned a lot from this company and the environment, especially in managing projects. It was a great team with lots of support. Although the business was beginning to get less and less busy during new technology transitions, it was still full of opportunities to learn.
Administrative Assistant, Receptionist (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – March 15, 2017
I am currently working at BAE Systems. The company culture is great. We have perks. Each week we get fresh fruit and soda. The people are very friendly. The hardest part of my job is that there is a lot of down time. That is the main reason that I am looking for a new position.
The product in itself was a great concept. They tried to take to a commercial market and it was not ready. The installations floundered but they kept moving ahead. You had to use your own credit card for travel and it would take three months for reimbursement.
Great company to work with. Great working environment.

Reviews have become a regular part of our online search routine. Similar to how people use reviews to make a purchase, plan a trip or choose a restaurant, job seekers also reference them as they research potential employers. A career change is one of the biggest decisions we can make, which is why 83% of people say employer reviews impact where they apply.
IT Auditor (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – May 17, 2016
My department in Internal Audit was a revolving door of unknowing applicants that quickly find opportunities anywhere else that is hiring. Audits are disorganized with the goal of finding issues, not at bettering the company's processes or security posture, and the department has a bad reputation among others in the company. This is something you might expect within Internal Audit, but this disdain you receive at this company is exponentially worse. Aside from the problems of this department, the company is generally still very fragmented from the larger BAE Systems as a whole, so you feel very much that you are working at the 400-employee SilverSky with no room for advancement or cross-channel opportunities within the larger company. Management tends to only be concerned with their own management responsibilities and no one is concerned with the problems within IT Audit, nor the larger problems or outlook of the company as a whole.

Desktop Support Engineer (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – March 19, 2015
this is an excellent company to work for. working here makes you feel like you are a part of something bigger than yourself. we are part of projects that help prevent cyber crime, as well as child abuse. although it may not feel like it at times, as the big picture is often a hard thing to keep in the forefront of one's mind. the atmosphere in the office is a relaxed one, and company morale is high. constant innovation, and expansion is something you will get used to if you are here for an extended amount of time, especially in the americas. BAE systems, as well as being a player in the cyber market, is also a weapons manufacturer. The company's roots are that of Britain, hence British Aerospace Industries. The company was formed as a merger in 1999, but has more recently been expanding in the american cyber market, as well as globally.
