    Current Employee - Systems Engineer  in  Alice Springs
    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Alice Springs

    I have been working at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * The technologies are fun to support
    * The impact on the world
    * The pace of life versus a city in the USA
    * If you're going to get laid off this is the place to come and hide
    * Get to work with some Australians with no formal education or training
    * Fun to vacation in Australia but due to how short staffed the program is it is difficult to get time off

    Cons

    * If you've invested a significant amount of time and money getting an engineering degree the Raytheon contracts should be avoided in Alice Springs because your skills will erode
    * Horrible communication from management to the employees (the maintenance manager never shows up for a meeting he schedules with his people)
    * Management treats the employees as expendable
    * Several years into the contract the roles and responsibilities are still not clearly defined
    * Promotions are done via the "Good ole' boys club"
    * Management create jobs with a "title" to create the illusion that there is advancement. They are looking for a mule to do the work that they don't understand. There is no promotion or pay raise that goes with these jobs...but s/he gets a "title"
    * Non existent pay raises
    * High turnover rate so there are no domain experts who can train new hires

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire. Go into used car sales. Complete your high school education.
