Pros

Large company, major business unit of Raytheon Company which is a major defense contractor. Starting 4/1/2013, RTSC combined with Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems to become Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services business unit. Numerous avenues for career growth, good benefits, solid business model and potential.

Cons

Frequent reorganization. Tends to be high-priced on contracts which limits the number of contracts they win in this competitive environment. Cross functional team management structure causes a lot of cost and schedule overhead, slow to make business decisions, slow to change.

Advice to Management

Need to streamline decision making and lower overheads by trimming the organization.

    Pros

    Many opportunites to grow, learn, and move if you choose. Generally very well managed and smart leaders.

    Cons

    Easy to get caught up as just a number. If people want to do the bare minimum, they can get away with it and it's very difficult to get rid of bad employees.
