Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good work life balance. 9/80 Schedule. Low stress. Friendly co-workers.

Cons

Boring work. Lots of red tape. Management only cares about gathering stupid metrics that even they agree is stupid.

Raytheon Six Sigma... ugh. Huge waste of time that we make the government pay for.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Lots of opportunities to learn new skills. To benefit from this you must be hard working, and willing to push for what kinds of jobs you want.
    -Huge talent pool. There is no shortage of hard working, highly intelligent people

    Cons

    - Odd distribution of engineering performance. Many are great engineers, but many are dumber than a box of rocks. There are few in between. If you get the pleasure of leading a team, punt the dead weight early on.
    - Easy to get stuck doing one thing if you are trying to do what's right for the company and not what's right for you.
    - HR has clamped down on raises, promotions and bonuses.
    - Only upper/middle management gets huge bonuses. Encouraged to work hard to solving crisis after crisis caused by poor management in order to ensure that the same management gets their fat 15-20%+ of salary bonuses. Then given a $250 award as a thanks for all the long hours and weekends. Insulting.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for performance please. Only getting an extra 0.5% to 1% raise for outperforming >75% of your department is not pay for performance.
