Steady company, merit-based promotions

Principal Engineer (Current Employee)
North Andover, MA

I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSolid company that has wisely invested in both foreign and domestic contracts. Merit based promotions seem fair. Decent opportunities. Company will train you if needed. You can easily make a lifetime career with this company.

ConsLarge company that has too many processes/red tape at times for domestic contracts. United Healthcare is a terrible HMO if you have a family. You will get a bill for everything related to your children/pregnancy/prescriptions.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow your Section Managers more time to work with their personnel in regards to careers. SMs are required to spend 3/4 of their time on business contracts and the personnel are often neglected and not grown properly. It is often sink-or-swim on your own.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Challenging work, however Defense Industry can be slow and tedious
