I have been working at Raytheon

Pros

Compensation is very good. Job security at Raytheon Missile Systems is also very good. Talent and hard work are acknowledged fairly through raises and promotions.

Cons

Some tools used by Raytheon are very old, which can be quite frustrating to have to work with 20+ year old equipment. Unnecessary process can get in the way of engineering.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on removing obstacles for the engineers to get work done. Lots of time can be wasted dealing with unnecessary process and poor equipment.

    Pros

    The company has good people who have a mix of talent and promotes diversity and great work life balance. Very good training programs and for the most part everyone is well compensated.

    Cons

    If you are young, (depending on the department) might not be aggresive enough towards your career and professional growth. Again, depends on the department and management's recognition or room for growth that may turn you off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the multiple layers of structure in the org. chart. Talented people can be lost easily (by management) and turn away.

    Too much red tape and bureaucracy, must be self-motivated to succeed here.

    Pros

    Many different programs to choose from, good work-life balance, good compensation and benefits for work.

    Cons

    Though there are a lot of programs, your ability to work on them depends solely on your relationship with your manager and your networking skills. If you are at all passive, you lose. You will not get approved for training opportunities, you will not be short-listed for interesting projects, you will not get promoted. The only one looking out for you is you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a merit-based mentoring program together so that more senior engineers have an incentive to help new hires. This program should make it so that when new hires succeed so do senior engineers. For example, mentors to get a small reward/bonus if their mentees reach certain milestones (like 1, 3, and 5 year anniversaries or promotions). This would motivate the employees to be aligned towards improvement of the community as a whole, not to mention promoting employee retention for new hires. Right now senior level people have no reason not to blow off the new, young talent. They have incentive to protect their own job security. This attitude hurts the company as a whole.
