I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great work environment to learn, grow and contribute. One is only limited by one's own talents and initiative. Good to great compensation and benefits with opportunities in various business elements.

Cons

Too dependent upon government civil and defense contracts with limited non-defense opportunities but is very strong in aerospace and aviation. Business elements tend to be overly stovepiped and therefore do not effectively take full advantage of other Division's talents and/or solution sets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Greater attention and action should be directed at horizontal integration of scarce, talented people resources across business division domains to leverage internal experience and knowledge plus technical acumen for unique, agile solutions to various customer challenges.

    I worked at Raytheon

    Pros

    Surporting management, oppertunity to grow, excellent benifits, oppertunities to move to different area/departments. Excellent mentoring program.

    Cons

    The HR dept. needs some work. It dose not retain it staff for very long. I was there for eight years and had eight different HR reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the worker in your work centers.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Coming out of school, working for a big corporation like Raytheon helps you get your feet wet in the work force. There are a lot of processes to adhere to.

    Cons

    Outdated technology, proprietary in-house technology, promotion is based on years of experience rather than performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to attract more seasoned engineers and establish a culture where employees would want to stay for the long haul. Salary is below industry standards. There are too many managers and not enough workers for any given project.
