What do you think of BAE Systems?

I've been offered a job defence company BAE Systems but my friends of a more guardian persuasion* think the company are the absolute definition of corruption and capitalist greed. But what defence companies are? i would like your opinions on the company and whether, morally, i shouldn't except ( i have another offer from Rolls Royce. ) * to non-brits, The Guardian is a British liberal left leaning newspaper who don't take kindly to the business practices to the worlds second largest defence company.

Dont listen to the Guardian, they're all up themselves. Its like a Daily Mail for posh people! BAE systems are fine, my dad use to work from them.

My dad has worked there for 25 years. He's been helping build the tanks for Americas defense, not out of corruption or greed.

They are a first class company hugely successful and a world beater in there field, just the sort of company that would get up the nose of Guardian readers

Well Chris it matters not where or for who you work, as we all work for the same Masters, it's just like a pyramid, with the Elite at the top and us at the bottom, and our labour is for the ones above no matter where you work, so go for it.
