    Current Employee - Financial Analyst I in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    There are flexible work hours along with the 9/80 schedule (every other Friday off, provided you work the standard 9 hours a day on the other days within that 2 week span). Also, the job security is pretty good.

    Cons

    The compensation is on the lower side, there is limited career growth. There is also little recognition for those who perform at higher levels since senior management doesn't necessarily value those who excel more than someone who is performing at an expected level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better compensation and recognition for those who consistently outperform their peers
