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

Pros

9/80 Work Schedule (Every other Friday off)

Cons

The "Forced Rating System" is used not allowing actual deserved performance ratings by supervisors (i.e. most great performers told they are doing fair only or unacceptable).
there is forced employment reductions of employees over 50 years of age (their form of the movie "Logan;s Run"). Most managers are managers only with no experience about what their staff does (non-technical).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A new CEO with "christian faith" must make major changes to culture.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good environment, very good 401k, supportive team, good benefits, good training. I would definitely come back (in fact, in a lot of ways, I'm sorry I left there in the first place)

    Cons

    Too much badgering about contributing to the PAC. I would have preferred to not seen quite as much political involvement, but understand that, as a defense contractor, such things are necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    n/a -- they did a great job and can't consider much to recommend.
