    Former Employee - Project Engineer in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/Life balance fairly good, political (which works good in some ways). Worldwide locations - potential travel and re-location opportunities, Stable environment (dependant on US defence budget.) Good people from all ages who have worked for the company and good opportunity to make lifelong friends. Regular updates on the company, top notch communication on company's financial position, schedule and other updates from leadership. They have improved a lot on this, fine if you want to be in a basic paid job bringing home some extra money if you're the lower earner of the household

    Cons

    Management and supervision have zero technical knowledge, no financial incentives to work hard or exceed, very few promotions from academically capable and well liked individuals (these goes to the wrong people every time) management and leadership out of touch, too much time wasted on pointless behavioural boosting courses, and meetings about meetings, no actions executed quickly enough to be innovative, there are no young people and very little done to train to bring them in, or retain skilled staff eager and keen to do well for the company, managers/supervision who damage morale aren't dealt with properly and keep their jobs managing people for as long as they want, HR are way too business biased as opposed to operating in the interests of the employee and fairness, Ethics and quality only carried out when it suits, skills and knowledge not fully utilized from key staff members, too many people in the wrong job roles, benefits and percs reduced as profits increase year on year, benchmarking only used to justify lack of employee rewarding but promote and advertise themselves as 'innovative' and 'global leading' in the same sentance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house, properly train staff in classroom environments and get young enthusiastic employee's into recognizable college and Uni courses and fully support them via studying time, and engineering/project management time. Retain staff, reward staff, cut some of the red tape, get down with the workers, listen, and please just get rid of people who continually prop up as being troublesome and unprofessional, especially when they're in management positions managing people. Boost morale by any of these means, and allow the lowest of earners a chance to travel overseas and work for experience and perhaps to inspire them to want to do more for the company when they see the size of it. I've found that people who work their way up within a company are very valuable
