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.

    Pros

    Good compensation, good benefits, challenging technical work

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, too much regional protection of work, clearing out of senior talent in lieu of junior engineers when RIFs occur.
