    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The half dozen or so technically competent long time engineers who actually hold the corporate knowledge. Learn as much as you can from them before you get bored out of your skull.

    Cons

    Powerpoint presentations by the technically incompetent management seem to rule the place. No vision, no goals. Way behind current technology, no thought put into technology investment which explains why NCS went out of business. While the pay may be competitive, this place is no good for your career. The only product they have now a grip on is advanced EHF communications, but others are catching up quickly. All their other product areas have failed into oblivion due to reasons mentioned.
