A lot of great people, but better for individuals early in their careers.
Software Engineer II (Current Employee) – Richardson, TX – April 19, 2017
Raytheon has a lot of great people, but there seems to be a talent gap. They have a lot of people that have been there forever, and a lot of people who just graduated from undergrad. The people that are coming out of undergrad do alright because they are promoted quickly to about Sr. Eng. I, but then their careers seem to stagnate or they move on: hence the gap.
What is worse is that a lot of great, experienced talent is brought in, but then not allowed to go anywhere. I have met several people that have decades of experience that are brought in to work at the same level, or even bellow, the kids that just graduated from college. Needless to say, they don't stick around very long.
A lot of great people.
They do not know how to recruit or retain talent. Little growth beyond Sr. Eng. I.
