I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I like working here. It is challenging and rewarding. They have great contracts and many opportunities. I could not imagine working else where.

Cons

I really cannot write about any negatives. Sure sometimes folks have been on contracts where the clients can be unreasonable. But, you can always find another contract to work on

Advice to Management

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Learning opportunities, decent salaries, good benefits, long term stability

    Cons

    Don't follow their own processes, fire fighting instead of structure, all learning opportunities have been cut. Raytheon is a very top heavy company, a lot of VPs with very little value to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and prioritize, stop burning out the 20% doing 80% of the work and recognize where value is and isn't.

    Some good, some bad. Come in as an early career HRG, and you'll be okay.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time

    Pros

    Pay seems to be at or above market. Raytheon is a big player in the defense industry, so you'll get to know it well. If you're an early career HR professional, this may be a great place to stay for a few years to get some experience.

    Cons

    Antiquated performance management philosophy, no real HR innovation. You're graded against your peers in order to get a raise, so no real incentive to collaborate with other HR people. Incredibly tactical, administrative HR function focused only on deadlines, not on process improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Show up as leaders, not just managers. Reward those willing to innovate and find better ways to do to things. Figure out how to make the HR Services Model actually work so that every HR role isn't just a tactical / admin role.
