    I have been working at Raytheon

    Pros

    Relatively stable in a down economy. Great benefits compared to the private sector jobs. Great technology is being used and developed every day. Very good community outreach initiatives. The name Raytheon carries good weight.

    Cons

    Trying to be a system integrator, instead of having control of the hardware. Moving away from designing and developing hardware. Moving towards generic hardware, with custom software. Large age gap with senior engineers is very difficult to overcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the red tape and trim the process. It shouldn’t take 1year+ to get anything done. Empower the junior engineers and trim the middle managers. There is to many approvals needed to get anything accomplished.
