Pros

They have good benefits and diversity.

Cons

It's a perfect example of big "Corporate America". It's all about the bottom line and Wall Street. I liked it better when it was Hughes Aircraft Company.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Outstanding "worker-bee" people - terrible management

    Pros

    Engineering and support staff are outstanding - great to work with, go out of their way to help, do whatever is needed. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Management is out for themselves - don't care about the staff - only their bonuses. Rarely promote from within. Total lack of inter-division cooperation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue - treat your people right and everyone wins.

    Pros

    Raytheon is a very big company so your career can really be what you make of it. Each site and division is different. So you may have to be willing to move around to really grow. As with any big company, some sites are better than others. If you find a site that suits your skill sets and interests you can enjoy a growing career. Benefits are very good and work schedule is fairly flexible

    Cons

    It is easy to get stuck or pigeon holed into a particular program that may have dying technologies.
