Former Employee - Engineer in Washington, DC

I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Structured environment, somewhat stable in this environment

Cons

Company contracts aren't growing much outside of missile systems, leaving little room for professional growth aside from people leaving, benefit cuts to non-management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce your bidding rates. There are a lot of people that don't really serve a useful function (i.e. safety officer that can't help employees who work onsite and send out annoying weekly safety tips). Also, HR only does the bare bones - several employees in addition to myself tried to contact them on both phone and email with questions. No response.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with very smart people. Work was challenging and satisfying. Learned about many new technologies. Helping to save the lives of men and women in the military -- purposeful mission.

    Cons

    Extremely hierarchical and bureaucratic. Lacks innovative ideas in Communications function due to fear of taking risks. VP out of touch with employees who do the real work. Layoff benefits are horrendous unless you are a VP. You get one week per year. Can't sustain yourself while looking for a new job due to sequestration.

    Flexible work hours, working with extremely smart people
