    An OK place to work, but about the best Fort Wayne has to offer

    Pros

    * Work/Life balance is respected. Most people do around 40 hours. Overtime is paid.
    * Company shutdown over Christmas to New Years.

    Cons

    * Review process is not transparent.
    * About 70% of people get a 'meets expectations'
    * Can get stuck working older technologies, like Ada, that aren't marketable elsewhere

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be few carrots and sticks in place for professional advancement. That is, it's not widely known which activities are rewarded and those that are punished. Since nobody knows what people got promoted for (or why one got passed over), it's difficult to gage what's truly valued.

    Overall a good place to get your feet wet for an engineer, but not a place for professional development.

    Pros

    Working for Raytheon will expose you to a number of competent and experienced individuals. There is a lot to be learned from the older peers as long as you can find the right programs to work on where you can interact with these people.

    Cons

    The management team tends to be very disconnected from the people who they lead, often making decisions that run counter to the information they are given. The ability for younger engineers to advance and develop is hindered by the lack of focus by management on the topic.
