    I have been working at Thales-Raytheon Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are smart, friendly, reliable people and the work is very interesting. You get the opportunity to work on all layers of the application. The work schedule is very flexible and the option for 9/80 work schedule is more standard than 40 hour weeks, leaving every other Friday free.

    Cons

    Unless you are hired as an expert programmer, you get stuck doing programming that is mainly repetitive tasks or bug fixing. True OOP practices and search algorithms that I learned in school have not been applied at all. Also, because it is a contact based company there is always a worry about losing your job at the end of a program.

    I have been working at Thales-Raytheon Systems full-time

    Pros

    I have worked at this location for more than 20 years. Location is great - within nice residential area. Benefits are great, work is fulfilling with exposure to US and International business. Employees are friendly and willing to collaborate.

    Cons

    Management is weak - can be abusive in some areas especially at the top. Very old school. "Flawless execution" is expected with almost no chance of reward or recognition. Performance appraisals are almost meaningless since final "grade" is going to be average for all but a very few.

    Advice to Management

    Time to clean house.

    I have been working at Thales-Raytheon Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Company allows for a flexible schedule and alternate Fridays off -Fairly stable employment for short term, usually less than 50 hours per week -Tons of well educated, kind indeviduals here that are willing to put in their own time to help you

    Cons

    -HR seems to take forever to respond to issues -Company does not seem very diversified, and this location is slowly shrinking -Little if any training in new areas -Cyclical government work, layoffs hit every few years

    Advice to Management

    -Please invest in training your engineers -Reassess pay and benefits, they doesn't seem very competitive anymore -Invest in proper tools so that engineers can be efficient and effective

    Pros

    If you like this...its easy and slow paced. Just work slow and things get done eventually. You can do no work and still get raises.

    Cons

    Very flat organization and little movement up. Aerospace...so lots of lazy govnt employees.

    I have been working at Thales-Raytheon Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good people and sometimes interesting tech. Surviving well in this difficult economic environment. They also try to move their people around before laying off.

    Cons

    No raises at this time. But this is probably due more to the economy than to anything else. Benefits were ok, but expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on execution of programs in order to get new business. They are already doing this, but more focus does not hurt.

    Great Companies to Work for. Good colaborating systems engineers and management.

    Advice to Management

    Paper performance reviews need to be improved rather than words of appreciation!
