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

    Pros

    Small close knit teams working to develop some "cool stuff" and the people that you work with will leave you with a good feeling at the end of the job or the end of the day

    Cons

    A feeling of nepotism...many of the managers that I’ve worked with this is their first job out of college having never left Raytheon and have been there 25 to 30 + years...a little out of touch...not sure about real world work...making sure that their generation is sheltered...the old "Cash is king" mentality is killing the Millennial and Z generations outlook on their future

    Advice to Management

    Narrow business units and flatten the management structure...the process has started but too late for this economy/administration…follow defense industry leaders like Boeing, LM, NG…and move away from the wide matrix organizational structure…it is really necessary to have a Program Area Engineering Manager with 25+ years of experience to manage a Program Area Engineer with 25+ years of experience to manage a Program Engineer with 25+ years of experience to oversee a Sr. Engineer with 25+ years of experience with whom also has managers within each discipline of SE, SW, HW CM, DM, ILE…it’s crazy…eliminate the top 3 levels and let the Sr. Engineers do the job…streamline the structure and then you’ve reduced your cost…and you will get some work… get rid of the RBI system…it hinders business growth and employee moral…it has an analogy to the King and the paupers…
