    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many intelligent and hard working people. Lots of opportunities and lots of technology to play with.

    Cons

    Can be disorganized at times. Anything ranging from teams using an IMS to just telling you what the plan is... never really a reason to not have a schedule for year+ tasking.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that your Year+ plan is broken into milestones that can be tracked by the team.

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

    Pros

    Nice overall physical campus, with library, cafeteria and large sports fields. Some very capable folks, courses available.

    Cons

    It depends on the department, and some are excellent. But the GNS department has serious managerial shortcomings. Managers, and there are many of them, are mostly non-technical folks. They sit in a very pleasant part of the building, with large offices, clean carpets, beautiful windows and a quiet environment, yet their engineers sit in the dungeon -- loud, dirty, cramped cubicle farm. There isn't even a decent kitchenette. Management at GNS simply does not take good care of its engineers. Since some very old engineers are kept around, well past their retirement age and past their prime, there is little room for promotion for some of their younger and mid-career employees. It's a department with almost no room for innovation. I have seen innovative ideas by some of the younger folks rudely belittled and trampled upon by crude technical leads.

    Advice to Management

    GNS functional and programmatic management need to be changed to technically capable and caring individuals. This is of course a generalization. There are good functional managers in GNS and good program managers. But their concentration is too low and is corrupted by too many bad managers.
