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

    Pros

    Stability of Employment, Very good benefit package, Multiple opportunities within a Large Company. Good skip-level interactions.

    Cons

    They have a tendency to burn out employees. Very lousy work-life balance. The expectation of uncompensated 50-60 hour workweeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management Jobs should include some sort of training out on one of the manufacturing floors

    Pros

    Every other Friday off. Some of the people that work their are very friendly.

    Cons

    Conflicting views from different areas of management. Upper level management says that your can get in trouble for working and then not charging it but a lot of project leads try to pressure you into not charging hours after doing work for them. Also hard to receive help as no one wants to help if they are afraid they won't receive a contract to charge. When starting at the company there is no reasoning behind where they put you. Also management in your section gets upset if you do not do a Six Sigma project but its almost impossible to find funding for a project in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually place people based on their skills and interests or do not hire them. LIsten to employees when they say project leads are pressuring them to not charge to contracts rather than rewarding the leads for being under budget.
