    Pros

    The professional and technical services business unit works with very good clients. The work was satisfying and employees have a reasonable degree of latitude and autonomy.

    Cons

    This business unit had weak leaders with questionable ethics. They were concerned about the short term, which often led to hiring/layoff cycles.

    Advice to Management

    At the time of my employment, there was no employee morale survey. Management should consider implementing employee feedback and 360 reviews to understand employee morale and to assess leadership.

    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 Management

    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.
