Pros

Compensation is very good. Job security at Raytheon Missile Systems is also very good. Talent and hard work are acknowledged fairly through raises and promotions.

Cons

Some tools used by Raytheon are very old, which can be quite frustrating to have to work with 20+ year old equipment. Unnecessary process can get in the way of engineering.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on removing obstacles for the engineers to get work done. Lots of time can be wasted dealing with unnecessary process and poor equipment.

    Pros

    Safe, secure, steady job. Great place if you just want to punch in and punch out everyday. Some interesting projects.

    Cons

    Typical of defense contractors, many engineer jobs are really just paperwork, no actual engineer work involved. Easy to be disillusioned if you're on the wrong program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Matrix organization seems to just be an excuse for every employee to have at least 2 bosses asking for status every day. Value your technical people, the managers that give you status on powerpoint aren't the ones that will fix the problem that's delaying a product delivery.
