I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

They try to listen to their employees and provide better benefits and more interesting projects whenever possible. Definitely gave the impression that you could make a career there if you wanted to.

Cons

Things change slowly here, it can be hard to patiently wait for new projects to come along or new opportunities to appear.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would recommend finding a better way to restructure programs without killing morale. I was glad that I got to dive right in to higher responsibilities but I wasn't happy to watch many of my team members run off to new projects shortly after I joined.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work with very intelligent engineers.
    Process were well defined.
    Flexible with working hours so that people was able to balance graduate school / family / medical needs, etc.
    Great benefits.

    Cons

    Programs can be slow to respond due to the size of the and nature of the work.
    High turnover of HR personnel at the site I worked at.
    Can be difficult to expand beyond current job role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to keep employees challenged with their roles and responsibilities so that skillset is fully utilized. This is the reason why I left the company as a better opportunity for growth came up.
    It is understandable that layoffs are needed when there is a downturn, but how the layoffs are conducted shows the true leadership and character of a company.
