Peace it is! You've convinced me that BAE systems isn't the best example.
We'll have to see if we can find a better one
No offence was intended by the way.
Out of interest, I know it's quite common to find employees who are all too keen to dump on their employer - I've done it myself.
And I'm sure BAE Systems has its warts like all other major companies.
But I stand in awe of the way our board have delivered their stated strategy, reduced their dependency on the UK MOD
, re-engineered their relationship with the UK Government after JW
screwed it up, managed the integration of Marconi, British Aerospace, UTC
and a whole host of other companies into a single entity, with shared values, shared beliefs, and a "team" spirit the like of which I've never come across before in big organisations.
Doesn't matter which country, or what the company sign used to say over the door, walking into a BAE Systems facility anywhere in the world feels like coming home. I truly take my hat off to the guys at the top who have managed to do this. It is no small feat.
