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

    Pros

    Challenging work, bright people, competitive salary, generous benefits with opportunties across many organizations throughout the US.

    Cons

    Managment is resistant to change, does not always respect opinions of employees and may stifle the career otherwise ambitious and talented employees to look elsewhere. Large programs may ramp down quickly leaving little choice but to downsize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to respect opinions of new employees and allow them to choose thier career path. Provide sufficient resources for people to perform at thier best.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Good pay - good benefits - pension plan - 401k-

    Cons

    This place is a cesspool
    - In IADC its a factory where the number of derelicts numbers in the hundreds. The management style is who can yell the loudest . the big bully mentality still exists
    - Try not to use the restrooms , they are filthy and I have seen better in a gas station.
    - They say they have a 9/80 schedule, but in Andover they have cancelled it - No word when it will be back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some positive people! - the current leaders are a bunch of zombies who follow whatever new direction is given - without even the slightest idea how to independently evaluate if the idea is any good. Constantly drinking the Kool-Aide is not good for the health of the company , though if you don't drink it you will soon be outside looking in at Raytheon.
