Stressful not much life work balance

Ok place to work
Distribution Manager (Former Employee) –  Greenville, TXJanuary 6, 2019
Good company to work for but conditions improved even more once L-3 bought them out. More “people type persons” in charge and moral improved greatly when L-3 took over.

Very large company with different cultures at different locations
Logistics Command Media Coordinator, Inventory (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZJanuary 2, 2019
Raytheon is the combination of many different companies merged over time. As a result it is geographically dispersed and culturally rich. IT has major operations in MA, TX, CA, VA, CO, FL, MS, and many other states as well as numerous non-US locations. No two sites or Business Units are quite the same in methods of operation, mix of tools, or management styles. Raytheon tries to be more a more like one company, but long standing cultures, both good and bad, are not easy to change.
Pros
Emplyees are generally well respected and trusted.
Cons
Some pockets of management cliques

Competitive and Smart people. Don't care about the middle managers
Principal S/W Engineer. (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZDecember 23, 2018
Please realize that I am talking about the company in Tucson and my review opinion is based on my personal, one-year experience.
I am not sure about the middle managers who have worked here for many years and doing so, have developed imperious habits. They abruptly switch people around, citing business needs. This can be stressful for people who have settled in. I have also encountered a couple of apples who have hoarded, hidden and prevented others from sharing work.
The younger managers are fantastic and people here are generally decent, smart, competitive and hard-working.
Tucson is a small, somewhat poor, town. Surrounding is picturesque with desert landscape and mountains; and hot in summer. May not be suitable for everyone..do your research before relocating.
Pros
Interesting work, smart, decent people. good benefits
Cons
Imperious middle managers
