Current Employee - Senior Manf Engineer in Forest, MS

I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

9/80 Work Schedule (Every other Friday off)

Cons

The "Forced Rating System" is used not allowing actual deserved performance ratings by supervisors (i.e. most great performers told they are doing fair only or unacceptable).
there is forced employment reductions of employees over 50 years of age (their form of the movie "Logan;s Run"). Most managers are managers only with no experience about what their staff does (non-technical).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A new CEO with "christian faith" must make major changes to culture.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Challenging work, bright people, competitive salary, generous benefits with opportunties across many organizations throughout the US.

    Cons

    Managment is resistant to change, does not always respect opinions of employees and may stifle the career otherwise ambitious and talented employees to look elsewhere. Large programs may ramp down quickly leaving little choice but to downsize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to respect opinions of new employees and allow them to choose thier career path. Provide sufficient resources for people to perform at thier best.

    Pros

    Was a great company with innovation as it's core. Not so the case today.

    Cons

    Lot's of employees are sitting around waiting to collect their pension with no regards for their fellow employees or future of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of young talent leaving the company; pay attention and do something about it!
