I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

My immediate management was generous with letting me run the dept as long as I got things done and my efforts were value added.

Cons

I was hoping to retire from Raytheon but upper management did not look at the ramifications of laying me off. Many program managers I supported were confused why I was let go. If a manager is changed there is no means to communicate to a new manager how well employees are doing and all the rapport built up over the years is lost and you are just a number.

Advice to Management

Take better care to keep your best employees. They deserve better.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time

    Pros

    Some super talented and dedicated employees, interesting and challenging work.

    Cons

    Senior management infighting, lack of company vision for new directions. Definite sense that senior management is getting what they can while they can.

    Advice to Management

    Rewarding and promoting empty suits and yes men is demoralizing to the vast majority of employees. The good of the company should come before individual egos. Deadwood throughout the ranks needs to go.
