I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pay, hours, sense of pride in serving the country without being in the military. Most hourly positions are bargaining unit, so the quality of life is always negotiable.

Cons

Management is always on a revolving door. Some inexperience and incompetence in management.

    Pros

    Vital interesting work good benefits

    Cons

    Due to economy stay away! People at a 12,000+ division are being quietly laid off especially long term employees in groups of 20-49 per week to avoid State laws on lay-offs. I personally can give you names of over 45 employees with over 10 years that are being walked. Good luck and best wishes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the people and families that helped to build you. I pray that you and your shareholders sleep well.

    Pros

    Great people, stimulating work, genuine passion for quality and value

    Cons

    Defense industry is still 70% of the portfolio and even though the business is well positioned in the market, neglect of this legitimate function of the federal government has forced business restructuring and downsizing. The company is way past using reduction in force to eliminate dead wood and is forced to eliminate excellent performers. Good performance evaluations are no guarantee of longevity with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. Remain true to ethics. Stay in touch with the good workers you have lost (invite me to the picnic like a retiree). Remember that this too shall pass.
