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

Pros

Stable, great PTO benefits, 9/80 schedule

Cons

Low annual raises, promotions and better raises are reserved for the top 5% and are more subjective than objective

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tie merit increases completely to the program's input and not base it on functional input. This seems like it would not reward employees for improving the department. However, employees can be rewarded by individual and team awards for their functional efforts. In short, program input should decide merit raises and awards should be used to drive functional improvements.

    Pros

    Intelligent people with a variety of work opportunities and a variety of places

    Cons

    Rigid management structure where low level managers have little power and many are unqualified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make raises competitive and work to have non engineers manage. I great ability to bring you get engineers in but effort needs to be made to retain mid level engineers.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Time-off: 9/80 schedule allows for 9 hour workdays and every other Friday off. Many employees are hard-working for fear of social ridicule and lay-offs.

    Cons

    Raytheon is a heavily process driven, bloated, bureaucratic organization with many layers of middle management and few avenues for career advancement. Many of the senior level managers and executives come from firms outside of Raytheon. Finance managers have very poor people skills and refuse to be leaders. After 7 years at Raytheon, I've never seen the CEO or President of my business unit in person. Many employees feel like a disposable widget at this organization and many leave for higher paying opportunities at companies with better reputations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Physically walk the floors to greet your employees. Explain business strategy in-person and often. Make performance evaluations less subjective. Create mentorship opportunities. Develop careers paths. Be friendly.
