Outstanding "worker-bee" people - terrible management

Pros

Engineering and support staff are outstanding - great to work with, go out of their way to help, do whatever is needed. Great people to work with.

Cons

Management is out for themselves - don't care about the staff - only their bonuses. Rarely promote from within. Total lack of inter-division cooperation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a clue - treat your people right and everyone wins.

    Pros

    Raytheon is a very big company so your career can really be what you make of it. Each site and division is different. So you may have to be willing to move around to really grow. As with any big company, some sites are better than others. If you find a site that suits your skill sets and interests you can enjoy a growing career. Benefits are very good and work schedule is fairly flexible

    Cons

    It is easy to get stuck or pigeon holed into a particular program that may have dying technologies.

    Pros

    The company has a good work-life balance and does not have a cut-throat culture. The company is huge and has lots of opportunities. Although the industry is going through rough times, it is still one of the more stable industries for job stability.

    Cons

    The industry and company can be very slow moving in terms career and business. They have a lot of processes and red-tape which can stop movers-and-shakers. The bureaucracy can be too much sometimes and promotions are based mostly on seniority. Although, they have a good culture the company is made up of middle-aged white men.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change culture to better fit young employees. The bureaucracy keeps young employees down and scares potential young talent away. Make promotions more about performance rather than number of years worked.
