They are a good company but their loyalty to employees was surprising less than their interest in profit margin.

Pros

Raytheon does promote career development, and their profit sharing provides incentive.

Cons

They no longer provide a pension. Their management is weak.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you plan to reduce staff for bottom line profit increases first consider offering experience engineers and valuable staff a chance to accept a pay decrease or grade cut.
