    Pros

    I love that we support the miliary war fighter. As a prior military spouse this is a large sense of accomplishment.

    Cons

    Overall I have not really found any downsides. I love the people and the challenging work. I just wish career advancement was easier in my department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lets keep being the most admired defense and aero space company. Our next couple of years will be tough with miliary spending decreases but we always find new and different products and uses making us very able to withstand the changing economy.

    Pros

    Absolutely cutting edge technology
    World class programs and project engineering management
    Good collaboration with team mates as long as they are not at your level
    Decent Pay

    Cons

    Peer Team mates on your own level will stab you in the back
    Friend/ Enemies describes the work environment their is no safe ground
    Senior Management will blind side you with out good communication and then blame it on you
    Do not report a problem as it was your fault you found the problem an then you are not a team mate
    You can absolutely forget work life and family 87 hour weeks and with travel and management is still not happy demanding more hours when you have not been home in 3 months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very bad communication skills, Horrible back stabbing, blame shifting environment, mid level management and first level management rocking for some one to stab in the back to move up in the corporate structure.
    Clicks in this environments rule the universe of Raytheon and it needs to end.
    You need to value outsiders to you organization when you bring them on
    Clairvoyance to how your organization expectations to how the organization runs by expectation and not education with out training is absolutely nuts to expect and demand.
