    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for those willing to embrace change.

    Cons

    Lacks cohesive underlying culture or branding. Long term efforts to support STEM education are starting to make headways, but overall, still lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like there are lots of disjoint efforts to imitate companies that have strong culture/branding in the eyes of media/the public. However, these disjoint efforts are coming across like desparate attempts at imitation. Need some real top down leadership to correct this.
