    Former Employee - Engineering Manager in Forest, MS

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitve salary, good benefits, capable co-workers.

    Cons

    Unethical, bullying upper management. Staffing decisions are made based on personal bias, not competency. The company has identifed Values and Behaviors that employees are supposed to adhere to when dealing with one another. Unfortunately the Values and Behaviors are not worth the cards or posters they are written on. There is a lot of duplication of work by multiple organizations. Corporate structure is too stove-piped. Upper management has a number of pet employees that they allow to "work from home" and charge to contracts while "working from home." Unfortunately these pet employees typically do not perform any real work and just cause more rework for everyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately they are not open to the advice of employees.
