I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Interesting projects to work on. Friendly and smart coworkers. Feels like a family at work. Good benefits and a great company discount system.

Cons

Can be slow due to the nature of Defense Contracting. Jobs not always stable, since government policies are changing (especially with regard to national debt issue)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to diversify from Defense to keep cycles down.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most business units will do all they can to keep most employees rather than have them resign or terminate

    Cons

    Some business units have entirely too much turnaround with either recurring layoffs or poor management that results in a rising number of employees resigning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has created a foundation for pillars of Respect. Please use them openly and honestly without reprocussion.

    -Consistent Culture/Processes within different business units
    -Steady job
    -Not too demanding
    -Good Work/Life Balance
    -9/80 Flexible schedule

    Cons

    -Low Pay, not competitive to market
    -Very silo'ed / stove piped organization.
    -Very little job growth opportunities
    -Top heavy organization
    -Inept Middle Management
    -High turnover among people with 1-3 years within the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide Practical follow through with your leadership vision. Middle management is out of tune with executive management. Employee turnover rates or voluntary leaves is primarily due to middle management.
