Good Company and Great People

Senior Electrical Engineer (Current Employee)
Tucson, AZ

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

ProsI 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementThere'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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
