    Pros

    The company is somewhat flexible.

    Cons

    Management is back stabbing. Dog eat dog. Let me pick and choose names to lay people off...as long as it's not one of the buddy boys.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    My immediate management was generous with letting me run the dept as long as I got things done and my efforts were value added.

    Cons

    I was hoping to retire from Raytheon but upper management did not look at the ramifications of laying me off. Many program managers I supported were confused why I was let go. If a manager is changed there is no means to communicate to a new manager how well employees are doing and all the rapport built up over the years is lost and you are just a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care to keep your best employees. They deserve better.
