Pros

Salary structure is very competitive. You can make things happen despite red tape.

Cons

Big company with big company politics and approval processes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide goals and allow the many competent people to do their job. There are multiple levels of approval each justifying their existence thereby setting up redundant and less specific contributions of management.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are comparable or better than industry standard. Highly diverse employee base. Work is of high value to society and the country.

    Cons

    No training and incompetent functional management result in poor performance on contracts. Management is very biased and bases promotions and raises on how well they like an employee instead of skills or performance. Most contracts are of a classified nature, which adds additional hinderance to career growth. There is no job stability and engineers are treated with very little respect. They're considered "labor" and "expense items" instead of the professionals behind successful capture and execution of programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Functional management needs a complete overhaul. Business base is eroding and Raytheon is not competitive because of incompetence and lack of emphasis on technical quality.
