    Pros

    Excellent Benefits Package and Good Employees

    Cons

    Hiring and Interview process is unfair internally.
    Promotions are very difficult to come by even when you have "Far Exceeds Expectations" performance rating

    Advice to Management

    Don't post jobs that are meant for people on your team. If you already have someone in mind from your team for a promotion, just promote them. Don't lead other internal applicants to think they have a chance at getting the position if you are just interviewing 3 candidates to check the box.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pays decently well for the area, There's a lot of dead wood in the organization which makes it easy to be a "good" employee. Most senior management is located somewhere else, so if you do good work you'll be left alone. Global mentor program and training opportunities are exceptional if you know how to get hooked up.

    Cons

    Indianapolis is not head of a business unit, near a customer, or near the competition. If you're 28-40 years old there's always going to be someone who's done an OK job for 25 years ahead of you -even if you're considered a rising star. Indianapolis also gets fewer Holidays, less severance, and no Profit Share when compared to most other Raytheon sites.

    Being far from senior management also means that getting noticed is difficult. The line I hear most is "Aren't you happy you have a job?". The "One Raytheon" philosophy isn't true.

    Advice to Management

    You need to recognize the 28-40 crowd and start elevating people. Provide the tools necessary to get the job done, and recognize that there is a difference between a job and a career. Employees at other sites talk about great communication and respect.
