    Although I had good times there and learned a lot, they treat people horribly and have too many useless managers.

    Former Employee - Engineer in El Segundo, CA (US)

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Intro to a lot of different technologies, good when you are right out of college

    Cons

    Your co-workers who do not know how to do their job are the ones who become managers and of course, they can't manage you well and it becomes miserable until you transfer to a new group and do the same thing all over again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to CARE more about the people who are doing all of the hard work, and if they go to you about the product being improved upon, stop saying it will take time and money, it is worth it to become a better product! News flash, I know.

    Looking for a mundane job with no advancement, but a decent salary to do very little? Look no further than Forest, MS.

    Pros

    No thought required, just react and point the first finger and you will go far.
    If you like charts and graphs and meaningless metrics to manipulate, then this is your calling.

    Cons

    Where to begin. The list is almost endless between the croniism and the purely reactionary work environment. Most upper level positions are recruited externally, often from personal relations, instead of developing from within. Leadership is non-existent, just management by individuals with little to no real world experience or ability. Employee morale is at it's lowest and management is not even aware -- that would require stepping out of one's office and actually getting involved. Or perhaps, since morale is not a metric, they do not care. This should be enough to paint the picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave and let El Segundo take over.
