    Current Employee - Senior Systems Engineer II in Woburn, MA
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you aren't very motivated and you're a low achiever, you'll get lost in the shuffle here. Nobody will fire you. You'll just get moved around from project to project as you upset your co-workers.
    Lots of projects to choose from.

    Cons

    You don't always know how to move from project to project. Easy to get pigeon-holed. Every department has vastly different budgets for raises and promotions. Therefore, equal treatment for equal work isn't usually the case between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to find different projects to work on in roles that will advance a career. Take more pride in allowing each department to fairly reflect there employees accomplishments. Stop making excuses about why things aren't equal and correct the problem. Engineers go into engineering to find solutions to the impossible. Management find a solution!

    "Get experience and/or expertise here and then move on to a real company with upward mobility and rewards."

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Employment here is best used as a stepping stone to better employment elsewhere. Work is bid at extremely low prices, opening the door for young (cheap) and eager (long hours) employees. You could get a position here which you may not be able to obtain at another firm allowing you to learn a great deal in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Very limited advancement opportunities. Poor salary's. Compartmentalized organization. Distant management. Compensation is top heavy. RTSC is the only Raytheon Company that does not engage in profit sharing or other means of recognizing the workforce while Management receives extremely large bonus's.

    Advice to Management

    Engage. Compensate all levels of the workforce. Promote from within. Walk your talk.
