Current Employee - Finance in Boston, MA

I have been working at Raytheon full-time (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 (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.

    Former Employee - Multi-Disciplined Engineer II

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good place to start and develop your career.
    Great people to be around regardless of where you work.
    You get every other Friday off.
    Good benefits
    Doesn't matter what hours you worked: as long as you worked the hours you're good

    Cons

    Have to be proactive in searching for work; can't expect work to be assigned to you immediately after you start
    Feels like you're isolated from the rest of the world

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication so that the newer more junior employees can get integrated into the company better.
