good when there was enough work

Principal Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Tucson, AZ

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

Prosvariety of engineering knowledge required, possibility for learning opportunities if there are project numbers, work life benefits are better than most,

Consengineering not always funded due to programs being in charge and very cautious with budgets. programs often only call upon engineering when there is trouble. Never saw this business model anywhere in the private sector. Training very limited for older employees.

Advice to Senior Managementdon't throw away senior engineers, you'll pay the price eventually

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

The disconnect between line management and the people who actually do the work is… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
