    Pros

    Nice physical building, nice workout fields, decent cafeteria.

    Cons

    I have worked on a number of programs in Raytheon El Segundo for over three years. Unfortunately, I found the company overall to be led by incapable leadership, treating its engineers as instruments in its business model. This place used to be innovative when it was Hughes Aircraft Company. It is now driven by cost-cutting. There used to be a library, which is now in the process of being closed. It reflects the change in values of the organization. Many of the managers I experienced were technically incapable and failing in leadership. The place is heavy with politics and backstabbing. Engineers are often stuffed in loud cubical farms. Funds are remarkably unstable and management, lacking in technical skills and understanding, often just drives schedule, overlooking and ignoring substantial technical failings.

    Pros

    I worked at Raytheon for over 4 years and had a great experience. The company provided many learning and growth opportunities. I was promoted twice during my tenure with the company, and my responsibility increased significantly. I felt like my management supported me and provided me with the career mentorship that I was seeking. I felt empowered and respected during my time there.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to work at such a large defense contractor company because of all the process and red tape. Things can move slowly, you have to be patient and pick your battles. That being said, if you learn how to work within the system, you can make a significant impact here!
