    I worked at Raytheon

    Pros

    I was rpoud of the work we did - protecting hte warfighter. I worked with some of the most talented people I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    The top executive is unprofessional, holds grudges and is vindictive. The rest of the exec mgmt is either like him or is afraid of him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This advice is to the CEO - look at the "leadership" styles of your business units' management. Don't just look at the financials.
