Review summary

BAE Systems Detica is growing quickly. This year 650 people will be added to its global workforce of 2,600 staff – of whom around 130 will be graduates based in the UK. The company says that its growth reflects a huge demand for technologies which defend against cyber attack, combat fraud and help businesses effectively manage the sometimes overwhelming amounts of data available to them and there is no question that the “exposure and expertise to these fast-growing markets” which the company provides are a big reason for the high satisfaction levels of its graduates. The work is “cutting edge” and is regularly described by reviewers in terms such as “phenomenally interesting” and “genuinely enjoyable” and this is reflected in an impressive 4.09/5 Enjoyment score. Graduates praise the extensive variety of their day-to-day role. They say that “it is never boring” due to the “fast-moving field of work” and the fact that projects change regularly. What’s more, reviewers say they are “in control of what they work on”, as one graduate notes “if I didn’t like what I was doing, or found something I really wanted to work on, I could change project”. Responsibility levels are very high. Almost all reviewers say that they are given “responsibility for real work from day 1” and that as a result they “feel very valued here”. The average rating of 4.14/5 for Responsibility is one of the very highest in the sector. Finally reviewers frequently mention the fact that they have “very good internal training”, which is constantly being improved and equips them well for the “steep learning curves” that the work involves. Finally, reviewers are full of praise for “the fantastic Graduate community”. “My colleagues are great – I’ve made a number of incredibly close friends at Detica” explains one graduate and this sentiment is widely shared, with a 4.18/5 overall average score given for ‘Colleagues’.
