Pros

I really like working for Raytheon in Tucson. I started as a Hughes employee in 1997, but no one told me about the Hughes retirement plan. There is lots of work. The people are family. The cost of living in Tucson is low. The company, under Bill Swanson, is progressive.

Cons

Tucson. Cow town. Lots of red tape. Slow to accomplish what needs to be done due to being a defense firm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There's a lot of grooming to those who "appear" to fit the mold. It's tiring to see the same (useless) people promoted year after year.

    Pros

    Do exciting work, innovative work
    Good about developing new talent
    Allow lateral movement around the company
    Solid core products

    Cons

    The company is pretty large and at times the bureaucratic processes can be confusing and daunting, this is on top of the huddles one has to jump through working with government consumers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep developing young talent and work to expand our market reach into other countries

    Pros

    One of the few employers in town not in the service industry.

    Cons

    Campaigns to get good ratings for share holders, not the reality of working there. People aren't treated on an equal level based on knowledge, it's all about who likes who.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the micro mangers. Treat people with respect, make that reality and not just a banner.
