Great old engineering company with great history of achievement - the government gets its money's worth

I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Interesting work, hard working and great people and good pay. The challenges are many but worth the tremendous effort the employees put forth.

Cons

The company is sometimes overloaded by government demanded programs (such as six sigma, total quality management TQM) that have nothing to do with real engineering and science. Understandably the management should be involved with this, but the government forces everyone to be involved with it and it takes valuable time away from solving engineering problems.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Since I was not in management, I have no advice to give. Management at Raytheon was fine.

    Pros

    stability, 401k contributin, work-life balance

    Cons

    lots of old-timers just waiting to retire. they are not productive and slow. while they are there, the rest of us can't get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    move the unproductive people out so the ambitious youth can get promoted and decide not to quit.
