Pros

Raytheon like many companies in the defense industry is made up of several prior companies and is working to take the best of the best.

Cons

Too much anticipating the company will become one from the grass roots level. Need top down Corporate mandating alignment. Still operates like several companies instead of one company.

Advice to Management

Take a lesson from a competitor - "one company, one team"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Benefits were quite good eg 7% total 401k match
    - Flexible schedule, altho it depended on
    - Once you got to know the people, many of them were quite nice

    Cons

    - It was impossible to get a promotion/ decent raise
    - R6S was a joke. At one point, my dept required each of us to 2 projects per year. They were a huge waste of time that were only completed to "check the box" for Annual review time
    - In many depts home/ work life balance was none existent. I knew people who were supposedly on the 9/80 schedule and who worked EVERY Friday without exception. In my case, towards the end, I was working late nights, and at least 8 - 12 hours a weekend.
    - Management biases against minorities
    - Incompetent management that did not know anything about the jobs/ responsibilities of the people they managed

    Advice to Management

    - Communicate what is happening in the company. It doesnt make sense to send one message when the troops in the trenches are aware of a completely different reality e.g. saying the company is doing great and is profitable and then having several rounds of RIFs
    - Be open to hearing ideas that are different from your own

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    When I was there, the job was very stable. I don't think it's like that anymore. People are nice. Some are really odd though (especially if you're an engineer).

    Cons

    No growth, especially if you're driven. Mundane work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote based on the buddy system. It might benefit you to really look for high performers
