Advice to Management

Better communication so that the newer more junior employees can get integrated into the company better.

    Pros

    They are truly a large corporation with all of the characteristics that go along with that. Good processes in place, opportunities for advancement. The best part of Raytheon are the great people who work there. Good compensation, but raise percentages were declining in the last 6 years; mirroring the employment environment; also driven by the particular area and focus of the business area you're in.

    Cons

    Raytheon touts their people as their best and most important asset, but that doesn't match their decisions and actions. Still a strongly dominated male environment in spite of some new female leaders appointed. More challenging for women to be recognized as innovative contributors. Very political company which drives leadership behavior, benefiting the leaderships' careers. Indianapolis has different benefits than the other RTN companies. Recommendation -- is if you have a choice, work for another division; but still a company I would work for again.

    Advice to Management

    None; they wouldn't take it anyways.

    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 Management

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