I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Competitive pay
Provide tools needed to do job
Overall the benefits are good though healthcare is relatively expensive

Cons

Too many people with narrowly focused jobs - don't get bigger picture.
Way too much mandatory training.
Feeling of "Us vs them" amongst departments.
Constantly re-orging company. My business line has had 3 in the last 4 years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Having a position of power doesn't mean you're smarter than those who work for you.

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

    Pros

    -Lots of opportunities to learn new skills. To benefit from this you must be hard working, and willing to push for what kinds of jobs you want.
    -Huge talent pool. There is no shortage of hard working, highly intelligent people

    Cons

    - Odd distribution of engineering performance. Many are great engineers, but many are dumber than a box of rocks. There are few in between. If you get the pleasure of leading a team, punt the dead weight early on.
    - Easy to get stuck doing one thing if you are trying to do what's right for the company and not what's right for you.
    - HR has clamped down on raises, promotions and bonuses.
    - Only upper/middle management gets huge bonuses. Encouraged to work hard to solving crisis after crisis caused by poor management in order to ensure that the same management gets their fat 15-20%+ of salary bonuses. Then given a $250 award as a thanks for all the long hours and weekends. Insulting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for performance please. Only getting an extra 0.5% to 1% raise for outperforming >75% of your department is not pay for performance.
