    Pros

    Tucson is beautiful. Workers are ok but management is horrible. Benefits package was pretty good. I heard they recently got a new site manager at RMS so maybe it is better.

    Cons

    management is petty, vindictive and incompetent. I didn't have a place to work, literally. The company talks a good game but when push comes to shove they do not celebrate diversity (I am not a minority by the way). If you don't follow the company line, you get ostracized and belittled. It is pretty obnoxious. Promotions are based on relationships not competence. Raytheon Missile Systems keeps a lot of deadwood on staff in management positions that should be offered retirement.

    Advice to Management

    Technical competence, fairness and leadership is expected by the staff.

    Get experience and/or expertise here and then move on to a real company with upward mobility and rewards.

    Pros

    Employment here is best used as a stepping stone to better employment elsewhere. Work is bid at extremely low prices, opening the door for young (cheap) and eager (long hours) employees. You could get a position here which you may not be able to obtain at another firm allowing you to learn a great deal in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Very limited advancement opportunities. Poor salary's. Compartmentalized organization. Distant management. Compensation is top heavy. RTSC is the only Raytheon Company that does not engage in profit sharing or other means of recognizing the workforce while Management receives extremely large bonus's.

    Advice to Management

    Engage. Compensate all levels of the workforce. Promote from within. Walk your talk.
