I worked at Thales-Raytheon Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

A nice working environment and people are very friendly over there. Co-worker is willing to help each other most of the time.

Cons

Too many processes and hierarchies. It is so hard to get promotion if you are doing very well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many system engineers without formal training and knowledge about what they are supposed to know.

    Pros

    TRS is a relatively small branch of Raytheon. It's a slightly more flexible environment. Communication is relatively good with immediate management (of course it depends on your manager). Upper management is pretty responsive to Employee Opinion Surveys.

    Cons

    Raytheon (and TRS) is too obsessed with having managers for everything. The management structure is too big and complex.
    Raytheon is also too obsessed with dividing the company up into a "better" format. This ends up segregating the divisions too much and reducing communication between the divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest reducing (flattening) the management structure. Remove middle management.
    Also focus more on individuals being responsible for the entire team instead of solely for their own tasks. You need to better encourage working together.
