    Pros

    Relatively easy to move around and work on different projects. Proactive behavior is generally rewarded. People are nice. Job is stable. Hours are normal.

    Cons

    Given size of company, politics is huge. Difficult to be agile and to make decisions since everything has to go through a process. Some engineers who have been with the company for a long time refuse to accept change.

    Advice to Management

    Be flexible and be willing to change if a process doesn't make sense

    Pros

    Every other friday off. Close to the airport. Computers are replaced every three years. Some nice people. There is a bonus mechanism but the auto union members get much more than the Raytheon employees, except for the executives.

    Cons

    Raytheon keeps dwindling the benefits down to almost nothing. No longer any pension. They make people take these education classes on a yearly basis that are useless. It has gotten to the point where a person can not even go on travel without watching every penny that is spent and the expense reports can take a great deal of time as every charge is nit picked. The managers tell the employees that they are looking out for them so they give them the chance to move to different positions without any chance of promotion. They call this a lateral move. Raises are not worth the paper they are written on as they average about 2 1/2% which does not even come close to actual inflation. Employees are encouraged to go onto further their education with no guarantee as to a promotion once the masters degree is completed. In short people are spending two to three years at night school for no reason, unless their plan is to leave the company once complete. There is no dedicated sick time, so people come in sick and everyone else gets sick. The stock holder has become the main concern for the company and the employee has been placed far down the priority list.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating the employees like people. Restore the benefits and keep the employees happy and the earninigs of the company shall improve as the employees will be incentivised. Companies such as Google and Apple treat their employees well and look how well they are doing. As a common sense thing bring back sick time.
