I'm just a tool, to be used and set aside.

I worked at Raytheon as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

It's a job. That's all.

Cons

Disconnected, dishonest management. Too big to be aware of employee needs/concerns. Takes advantage of contract employees (no overtime paid for 17hr days, 70-80hr weeks). Laid off twice (large groups of people, not just one) in 4 years...once via conference call!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start treating your contract employees like people. Provide worthwhile benefits. Quit lining your pockets with contract $$ and share some of it with the people earning it for you. Compensate your contractors fairly for the work they do.

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

    Pros

    The salary is fair relative to the cost of living in the area. Some of the work I have done has been reasonably interesting. The benefits are pretty good. Overtime is rarely expected but sometimes available if desired.

    Cons

    Salary compression is a problem. Promotions can take a while depending on the department. Most of the work areas are dreary and depressing. No part of the outdoor areas on campus are picturesque. Most of the work available requires spending all day in a dreary, windowless environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix up the facilities and make the campus more beautiful.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They are truly a large corporation with all of the characteristics that go along with that. Good processes in place, opportunities for advancement. The best part of Raytheon are the great people who work there. Good compensation, but raise percentages were declining in the last 6 years; mirroring the employment environment; also driven by the particular area and focus of the business area you're in.

    Cons

    Raytheon touts their people as their best and most important asset, but that doesn't match their decisions and actions. Still a strongly dominated male environment in spite of some new female leaders appointed. More challenging for women to be recognized as innovative contributors. Very political company which drives leadership behavior, benefiting the leaderships' careers. Indianapolis has different benefits than the other RTN companies. Recommendation -- is if you have a choice, work for another division; but still a company I would work for again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None; they wouldn't take it anyways.
