I suggest that management continue to help people develop themselves and don't force employees to stay in jobs where they are not happy, this lowers productivity and morale. I also suggest that management not overlook younger employees - they too can be the face of the company.
The overall job security in which the military is known for seems to be heavily erroding with recent force reduction measures and consequences. An outstanding achiever will relatively not be worried, but anyone in that second tier or lower has good cause. This year, I saw a few of my peers forced out for being unable to get promoted within their required timeframe (good Marines who faced an awfully competetive selection process).As for the actual position, I truly cannot recall any other period in my service where I dealt with such a blur of tasks, they avalanched down faster than I was able to organize and complete them. Our training department was also responsible for most administrative/logistical duties concerning company operations, and nearly all types of work that couldn't be easily pidgeon-holed into another section.
I overheard management saying they value employees with a large amount of debt. If it's important to be financially overextended, then this should be advertised. When you rigidly enforce processes for the sake of process and someone tells you that it's hurting productivity, they are not being insubordinate. Review Raytheon values and start being accountable for your teams.
