Pros

Coming out of school, working for a big corporation like Raytheon helps you get your feet wet in the work force. There are a lot of processes to adhere to.

Cons

Outdated technology, proprietary in-house technology, promotion is based on years of experience rather than performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to attract more seasoned engineers and establish a culture where employees would want to stay for the long haul. Salary is below industry standards. There are too many managers and not enough workers for any given project.

    Pros

    The benefits, salary, vacation, security clearance.
    The relocation package offered to employees to get them to the door, I think 35k was a pretty decent amount.

    Cons

    Constantly being bullied, not cool. I wish work was easier but it was pretty dull. Constant curve balls, and change of direction that if you didn't duck or ran with the current you can get swallowed real easy.

    The team I managed was mediocre at best. Engineers were young and didn't have the smarts.

    Everyone's attitude is to do whatever benefits themselves. The company and products come third, fourth, or fifth. Recruiting was hard, almost impossible to hire people to come to Forest given the low wages, vacation, and benefits offered.

    Hard to climb the ladder in a manufacturing facility. There is very little design work, therefore if you want to work on projects where you do the same things over and over this might be the place. If you want a dynamic place with different projects etc. look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to treat employees, you need training on how to inspire people in such a dull environment. Hard to have fun at work given how people get treated.
