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

Pros

The company is somewhat flexible.

Cons

Management is back stabbing. Dog eat dog. Let me pick and choose names to lay people off...as long as it's not one of the buddy boys.

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere. Great benefits and perks.. Salary is comparable to other companies. Most people there are goal oriented.

    Cons

    A lot of work but very rewarding. Not a lot of negative things to say about working here. Job stability is good but not great.

    I worked at Raytheon

    Pros

    Good pay, There is a lot of talent there.

    Cons

    Old boy network, Constant schedule delays, Put all their eggs in one basket selling too many derivatives based on an initial system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten the middle management to reduce costs instead of just laying off the lower workers. You have layers upon layers of management and multiple "chiefs" and none of them are bringing in value worth their paycheck without any responsibility. Spent way too much money bringing all the executives from CA to TX and nothing to show for it. It was like it was an "out" for management to sell off their properties in that troubled state and move to TX on the company's dime, where prices are low and they can now live like kings. Don't have many small waves of layoffs to avoid making an announcement. Just do it all at once and move on.
