I enjoy working for BAF but I'm interested in seeing what other opportunities are out there. It can be a fun and exciting workplace but if you're looking for stability, you may want to focus your job search on more established companies.

Young inexperienced managers

Energetic Fast Moving Company-- that can be too unpredictable at times
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYAugust 20, 2015
It is without doubt one of the best employers in the geographic area. There are many talented and wonderful people working there and the possibility for advancement is really great. However, the company can seem to lack structure and direction at times with projects changing direction or being canceled last minute.

Overall a great employer.
Pros
PEOPLE and PERKS
Cons
Uncertainty about your role

Military Sales/Vertical Market Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYAugust 14, 2012
No two days are alike at BAF, aside from the set of daily tasks you perform (qualifying and developing leads, converting leads into sales, CRM database management, etc.). The lessons to be learned are innumerable and invaluable, especially when the majority of the workforce is comprised of recent college grads with no "real world" experience. Management is experiencing some growing pains and organizational confusion along with the rest of the company, but the reason they've been rated one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky year after year, is in fact the people; the word "co-worker" is practically synonymous with "friend". The most enjoyable part of the job was learning the products inside and out, and translating that pride in craftsmanship to customers, ultimately beating out the competition for sales. The hardest part of the job (which I also found enjoyable) was keeping up with the DoD contracts and making sure we met all regulations and requirements.
Pros
special events, employee appreciate lunches, 401-k match
Cons
health insurance

They pay you to work there
Employee (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYMarch 12, 2012
If you have a fair job right now, my advice would be to stay at it. If you desperately need work, it's better than job-hunting.
Pros
they give you money for your services
Cons
the health benefits, should be researched thoroughly, before you accept the position
