    Pros

    Interesting work, strong technical staff, good facilities.

    Cons

    Senior management has lost technical insight into the product it makes.
    High turn-over rate in senior management positions, with many hired in from outside Raytheon
    Large space systems programs are all typically over budget and behind schedule
    Engineers are literally treated like galley slaves in order to complete these programs
    Over-reliance on process. Too many process control statements. Nobody knows what they mean or how to apply them
    Line management quality has been poor. Line management merely provides body shop function
    Engineers are pigeon-holed as to what they are "experts" at.
    Legacy-Hughes retirement program has a strange warping effect. Many bitter senior staff hang on until they qualify for retirement then quit when they can.

    Advice to Management

    Space Systems is not like other parts of Raytheon, sell it or learn to treat it differently

    Pros

    If you are a hard worker and willing to promote yourself and search out work, then Raytheon has quite a bit of interesting things to work on. Lots of cutting edge technology being developed.

    Cons

    The management obviously treats employees as if they don't matter. Some management people insulate their incompetence by promoting other incompetent people. Management makes promises they have no intention of keeping in regard to rewarding employees for their hard work. There are also a lot of lazy people that work there.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than trying to squeeze every nickel out of overhead rates by locating people in mobile buildings, cubicle farms, etc. start investing in your employees, treat them with respect and they will try harder.
