    Pros

    Good pay, There is a lot of talent there.

    Cons

    Old boy network, Constant schedule delays, Put all their eggs in one basket selling too many derivatives based on an initial system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten the middle management to reduce costs instead of just laying off the lower workers. You have layers upon layers of management and multiple "chiefs" and none of them are bringing in value worth their paycheck without any responsibility. Spent way too much money bringing all the executives from CA to TX and nothing to show for it. It was like it was an "out" for management to sell off their properties in that troubled state and move to TX on the company's dime, where prices are low and they can now live like kings. Don't have many small waves of layoffs to avoid making an announcement. Just do it all at once and move on.

    Former Employee - Project Manager/Store Supervisor/Business Process Engineer in Chula Vista, CA
    Former Employee - Project Manager/Store Supervisor/Business Process Engineer in Chula Vista, CA

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and advancement opportunities. Can have an excellent work environment. A variety of challenging work and opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    My work was in Module Spares Depot Repair. Upper management often doesn't recognize how it is different from manufacturing. They send in managers from the east coast for positions in depot repair and they judge everything from their experience and education in manufacturing and everybody suffers for it. And so does the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When an Officer or senior manager promises a promotion or work opportunity, there needs to be a mechanism to maintain continuity of that promise through changes in management.
