    Pros

    Flexible work schedule: you are good as long as you work your 40 hours. If salaried and approved you can get paid for overtime, as straight time.

    Cons

    Defense sector market downturn is and will affect current jobs.

    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.
