I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good compensation competitive within the industry and geographic location. Corporate leaders have established a good set of values. There are some great technologies in this company's portfolio.

Cons

Many of the company leaders are too risk averse. Though the company has niche products, it's not willing to do what it takes to go after competitors' business that can take it to the next level. The work/life balance needs to improve. In my experience, too many people are expected to work well beyond 40 hours per week with no additional compensation or labor accounting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall management style needs to evolve to suit new work methods or they stand to have difficulty attracting the best young talent. More collaboration/ ownership, less autocracy.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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