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

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

    The salary is fair relative to the cost of living in the area. Some of the work I have done has been reasonably interesting. The benefits are pretty good. Overtime is rarely expected but sometimes available if desired.

    Cons

    Salary compression is a problem. Promotions can take a while depending on the department. Most of the work areas are dreary and depressing. No part of the outdoor areas on campus are picturesque. Most of the work available requires spending all day in a dreary, windowless environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix up the facilities and make the campus more beautiful.
