Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at BAE SYSTEMS?

Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers?

What is a typical day in the life of an employee at BAE SYSTEMS?

No suits. Business casual. Culture: You have to remember that every BAE Systems location used to be another company. Each has an atmosphere of its own, primarily from the company it was. The managers in the other locations that are "over" the acquired company managers have a good laissez-faire attitude, but as time goes by, it seems harder to get people to respect the new, profit center atmosphere. Stays status quo a little too long. They work hard to break down barriers such as levels of management and territorial ownership of job function. A person with energy and drive can do well. I am looking forward to the future working for BAE Systems. - Danny Hindes

The EOUSA contract with BAE in Columbia S.C. is very unprofessional. There is an atmosphere of chaos, loud cursing, lack of knowledge, uncaring attitudes, and a "good ol' boy" club exists. Some individuals are allowed to take off whenever they want, or arrive whenever they want, and if you are not in that club you will not have those privileges. Management will throw you under the bus to cover for their mistakes. But hey, at least its business casual... For those not in the club anyway. If you are lucky enough to be in the club, you can dress however you want, even like a biker.

Basically if your face fits you will be fine. Bad behaviours are encouraged and as for D&I, if you are pale, male & stale you will do well.

Only if you have friends in high places. Talent alone will get you no where, as most people are afraid of you. If your face fits you will do well, if not get out quick before they frustrate you out.
