Current Employee - Principal Software Engineer in El Segundo, CA

I have been working at Raytheon full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Recognize talent and willing to help employee continue to develop their career. Great work life balance. Will pay for 1x OT whenever OT is needed. Most .com doesn't pay for OT but work 60 hours a week.

Cons

Some managers use their position as stepping stone and don't watch for the best interest of people under them. Upper manager doesn't realize or maybe not willing to admit that a lot of people take the section manager route just to get their promotion without proofing themselves. Everyone is aware of this which is such for engineer who really contribute to the success of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper Management needs to realize a lot E5 engineers will take the section manager route to get to E6 without ever proofing they dessert the promotion. This really kills the morale of people who work their behind off to help their programs and the company succeed.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting technical work for skilled engineers. Engineering problems are challenging and diverse. Opportunities for professional growth are abundant and there are clearly established career paths to follow

    Cons

    The company is very large - upwards of 70,000 employees. In any organization that size, beauracracy becomes entrenched. Raytheon is a very process driven organization. Knowing how to navigate within the process can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider making performance bonuses a larger part of the entire compensation package

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Varied career paths, engineering, quality, supply chain, operations, finance. Decent on the job training. There is something for everyone, you just need to find it. Benefits are good, but get slightly more expensive every year. Work Life Balance depends on role - as my responsibility & utility to the company has grown, my life balance has eroded.

    Cons

    Huge company, easy to get lost in the bureaucracy. Company tends to be reactive to employee development vs. proactive. Front line management is not empowered for substantial action, decisions tend to be made 2 levels up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a leader, not a follower
