    I have been working at Raytheon as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Enough R&D work to put a smile on any engineer's face. If you like to spend time in lab, you are appreciated and program managers find you. Much latitude is also granted—schedule your day according to program needs, and find whatever resources are necessary for yourself.

    Cons

    Health benefits slowly declined over the years.
    There are endless trails of paperwork necessary to get anything done.

    Close minded people operations and equipment 30 years behind. Operates like a small business in Goleta. Not willing to learn industry standards to improve effectiveness and overall lacking of world class operations

    Try to rethink management and operational approach and bring in a new mindset to help change the old ways.
