Pros

Great people, stimulating work, genuine passion for quality and value

Cons

Defense industry is still 70% of the portfolio and even though the business is well positioned in the market, neglect of this legitimate function of the federal government has forced business restructuring and downsizing. The company is way past using reduction in force to eliminate dead wood and is forced to eliminate excellent performers. Good performance evaluations are no guarantee of longevity with the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay the course. Remain true to ethics. Stay in touch with the good workers you have lost (invite me to the picnic like a retiree). Remember that this too shall pass.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Professional attitude, opportunities to develop technical skills, open to individuals moving into different roles

    Cons

    Can become overburdened with work. Formalized approach to performance assessment means that sometimes the only way to get promoted is to concentrate on those goals rather than on stepping in to ensure projects get completed on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make people section managers that don't like managing people.
