Made to feel surplus to requirements
Never felt my job was secure for many years before I was made redundant. The mangement don't care about their employees they are just a number. Good wages.

Submarines is very different
If you want a slow and stressful place to work with a attitude that is silo working than this is the place.Most.of the staff are from barrow and hate working there, but don't have the confidence to leave.My favourite sayings areOne day closer to death and there are only 2 place like this, here and prison.I worked there until I could not take anymore and after suffering with depression for several years I managed to pluck up the courage to leave.

Functional and business silos
If you are confused about the differing opinions across the other reviews an important thing to know is that the culture, workload and attitudes vary greatly depending on what function you work in, and what bit of the business you are sat in. Truly different sections of a single building floor can have a very different culture.I've worked in finance at Warton in a variety of roles across a number of programmes over the last 15 years or so and you can pretty much toss a coin each time you move to decide whether it's going to be great or unrelenting misery - this is usually determined by the chain of management you will fall under.Some management are great, will try and shield you from all the internal politics and let you do your job. Some will throw you under a bus. Or take kudos from how much work they can squeeze out of the smallest number of people. Bad managers get reassigned, not pushed out the door so one teams rescue is another teams downfall.To work here in the finance function and survive you need to be very sure of yourself, very emotionally robust and able to cope with middle management firmly entrenched in internal politics. The weak or sensitive struggle to survive. If you can cope with all that it can be great.Staff quote: "we achieve great results despite everything the company does to try and stop us".
Supply Chain in Coningsby, Lincolnshire
Great Company but Terrible Top Heavy Management
The Company & Product is impressive and looks good and interesting to outsiders; the pay and benefits also very good especially the Shares Scheme. Having come from an employment world of redundancies I worked hard in higher education to qualify myself for a career in this blue chip multi corporation. Alas once in I haven't got anywhere despite hard work and successful efforts to improvements; zero appreciation, zero recognition, zero support to improve one’s self worth, in fact the total opposite feeling deliberately held back. Same level colleagues are fantastic, some very clever hardworking and kind people within the business; we pull together very well, having to due to terribly poor middle management up to executive level who have no experience, knowledge and worse still, drive and ability to learn; often career hopping from one position to another with no loyalty to the job they took on. A real shame to know what really goes on behind closed doors. Ideal to coast and ride the gravy train to retirement whether you want to or not. Personal opinion to ultimate management failure - Project Managers, the latest fashion of the decade that could quite possibly eventually run the multinational aerospace into the ground.
