    I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Other than some decent pay for entry-level positions, I can't think of any pros about working for this company.

    Cons

    Time card fraud occurs on a daily basis. Instead of seeing how much money this company can save the government customer in dollars, they see how much they can spend, spend, spend! As a result, the employees are affected by being forced to work unnecessary overtime. Some employees were instructed by their leads to do 25 hours of overtime a week despite the lack of work to support such overtime. Some employees watch Youtube to pass the time, yet their supervisors hand them government contract charge numbers like candy. All of this lowers employee morale, because really, people want a personal life. With low employee morale, there is a high attrition rate as well. Therefore, more overtime to spend the government's money forced on only a handful of people! Needless to say, things get a bit hostile, increasing stress. But this company is too afraid to dispose of hostile workers. Their policies open them to lawsuits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're having employees work 25 hours of overtime a week, having them sit there and do nothing during those hours? The government probably needs to cut your budget for the next year. Your company promotes a work/life balance and ethics. You probably follow those ideas.
