    Pros

    Interesting Work, Nice People, Work life Balance, Good Medical Benefits, Clean Work Environment

    Cons

    There are no promotion opportunities. People who are talented, tell the truth and work hard seem to stay in the same position for a very long time. You have to empty your own trash as of December 2013 they eliminated trash cans for workers.

    Advice to Management

    Do not use the same people who cause problems to fix the problems that they caused. Find out who is really doing the work and listen to what they have to say with out bulling them into getting a pre-determined answer.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay (for Tucson) I feel respected Large number of different types of jobs available in finance Huge career possibilities Ability to put "$1 Billion" on your resume Able to become system expert in SAP which is widely used

    Cons

    As a young employee, I didn't believe a glass ceiling existed for women. I was naive. I know differently now; the glass ceiling is huge. 70% of U of A business grads are female, 50% of Raytheon (Tucson) finance hires are female, the top 2 levels of finance management are 15% female. After 10 years, you feel like you are fighting the same fights over and over again; it gets frustrating. The company is so huge it has a difficult time implementing effective change; I think this has to be true of any large company.

    Advice to Management

    You are constantly worried about job turnover but the company has gotten rid of its pension and gives pretty terrible raises. I am happy with my current pay but feel I was under-paid for years. In the past 5 years, a number of companies have started to compete for Raytheon's well-trained finance analysts. The only way to combat this is with higher pay or by instituting a pension plan people feel they can't afford to lose. Without this, you will keep losing your employees. Also, make things like working from home a reality. Without this, you will lose your ability to hire milennials in great enough proportion to make up for attrition.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the people and the hands on experience and the pay is great too with good benefits. Sometimes when contracts come in we have to stay late to work but usually the work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Wish we got paid for some of our overtime and Ron overlook great potential just because they are young they might be smarter than the old people.

    Advice to Management

    Be more efficient with charge numbers.
