Good, but not great

Systems Engineer II (Former Employee)
Tucson, AZ

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

ProsCompetitive salary and benefits, interesting work, flexible work schedule, ample resources, consistent hours

Consover-constrained working environment, convoluted promotion structure, contradictory timecard standards and practices, lack of support for innovation

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your salaries employees to work as such and stop treating them like hourly employees! The current structure asks them to log exactly 40 hours, encouraging inflation of logged hours on slower weeks and deflation on busy weeks. Further, as section managers are encouraged to reduce overhead budgets, time which should have been logged here is often charged to a contract. Help encourage innovation and progress by allowing more flexibility in charging to overhead and "innovation" time! Encourage your employees to find new solutions using a portion of their time, as Google and others have.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
