Some good, some bad. Come in as an early career HRG, and you'll be okay.

Principal Human Resources Generalist (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

ProsPay seems to be at or above market. Raytheon is a big player in the defense industry, so you'll get to know it well. If you're an early career HR professional, this may be a great place to stay for a few years to get some experience.

ConsAntiquated performance management philosophy, no real HR innovation. You're graded against your peers in order to get a raise, so no real incentive to collaborate with other HR people. Incredibly tactical, administrative HR function focused only on deadlines, not on process improvements.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow up as leaders, not just managers. Reward those willing to innovate and find better ways to do to things. Figure out how to make the HR Services Model actually work so that every HR role isn't just a tactical / admin role.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
