    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Paycheck, life/work balance, and health benefits.

    Cons

    Incompetent and unprofessional management team from project level up to department level. No technical training, ability to transfer, or career advancement opportunities. My design section had 8 managers who all quit the company within a 5 year span. No innovation and lack of focus in business. Real engineering design work is performed in El Segundo, California. Management politics dominate throughout all project functions.

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Provide tools needed to do job
    Overall the benefits are good though healthcare is relatively expensive

    Cons

    Too many people with narrowly focused jobs - don't get bigger picture.
    Way too much mandatory training.
    Feeling of "Us vs them" amongst departments.
    Constantly re-orging company. My business line has had 3 in the last 4 years

    Advice to Management

    Having a position of power doesn't mean you're smarter than those who work for you.
