I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great benefits, most offices allow flexible work schedules or a 9/80 work schedule. Casual work environment and most managers are very approachable.

Cons

It can be hard to move around to different projects, and there are not many opportunities for advancement in the current market. A lot of company practices seem to be old-fashioned, and many teams don't use current industry-wide tools and practices.

    Pros

    The pros of the job are good benefits, flexible 9/80 schedule, smart people to work with, career growth, interested in helping you succeed.

    Cons

    The work get's clustered in areas of the country, so one place has way too much work and another doesnt have enough which them results in lay-offs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to try to spread the programs evenly throughout the entire company, so there are not pockets of the company with little work which then can means layoffs.

    Current Employee - Principal Software Engineer  in  El Segundo, CA
    Current Employee - Principal Software Engineer in El Segundo, CA

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Recognize talent and willing to help employee continue to develop their career. Great work life balance. Will pay for 1x OT whenever OT is needed. Most .com doesn't pay for OT but work 60 hours a week.

    Cons

    Some managers use their position as stepping stone and don't watch for the best interest of people under them. Upper manager doesn't realize or maybe not willing to admit that a lot of people take the section manager route just to get their promotion without proofing themselves. Everyone is aware of this which is such for engineer who really contribute to the success of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management needs to realize a lot E5 engineers will take the section manager route to get to E6 without ever proofing they dessert the promotion. This really kills the morale of people who work their behind off to help their programs and the company succeed.
