Pros

In general they respect the employees. Everyone that I worked with got along and all worked together to make a success. They encourage employee development and emphasize ethics.

Cons

Reviews only differentiate employees when supervision/management intends to take some kind of action on them in the near future. (Intended promotion or warning to improve performance.) This results in poorly performing employees being retained for many years and good ones being let go.

Advice to Management

Involve supervisors in layoff decisionis.

    Pros

    large company with large company benefits that is pretty much standard across all large aerospace companies.

    Cons

    Mgmt style for EO divisions/centers were based on mgmt style from the parent Radar company back east, Raytheon's HQ, and is quite different than the way business was managed on the West Coast. Before Raytheon took over, business was better run when it was Hughes. Managers come and go rather quickly, based on whether upper mgmt likes them or not...

    Pros

    Great benefits package - paid time off, 401k match, health plans
    Opportunities to advance at different locations across the country/world
    Flexible work week

    Cons

    Very hard to move up if you are not one of the "select" golden children. Minimal raises. Poor management direction. Base pay low unless you leave/come back or are coming from a competitor. Typical male dominated company.
