    Pros

    Interesting work. Good people for the most part. Professional and respectful.

    Cons

    Cliques still remain. Depends on plant location and nature of work. If you fail to break into the clique, then you are in trouble.
    Top down communication breaks down unless the news is rosy.
    Upper mgt lost sight of the bread and butter of the business. Growth and plans are fine, but failure affects all in the trenches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reassess business strengths. Refocus efforts to regain that position.

    I worked at Raytheon

    Pros

    Direct-report supervisors are great.
    Appreciated professionalism of my co-workers. Great to work with them.
    Flexible schedules allow work-life balance, but there is a penalty for taking advantage of them.
    Paid time off between Christmas and New Years.
    People identified as high-potential can expect to see encouragement and support from management in terms of career advancement.

    Cons

    Can not trust communication from Upper management.
    People other than "high-pots" may be limited in career advancement, though immediate supervisors may provide support. Raytheon has a policy of rotating upper management from site to site, and there has been less promotion from within.
    Nepotism is alive and well.
    No windows

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IIS Management - How long before you listen to individual contributors about the problems you have within programs or on proposal efforts? You repeat the same mistakes, not learning lessons from past experience. People have been ignored for so long that they may stop providing candid feedback. It might just make them a target for the next lay-off.
