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

    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.

    Pros

    Great engineering staff in place.

    Cons

    Became driven by market, and did not invest in future capabilities.
    Job became frustrating and personnel became dis-enfranchised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to your engineering roots, invest in future products and capabilities, and practice what is preached (ethics and values).
