For The Young Only

Senior Manf Engineer (Current Employee)
Forest, MS

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

Pros9/80 Work Schedule (Every other Friday off)

ConsThe "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 Senior ManagementA new CEO with "christian faith" must make major changes to culture.

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