    Pros

    Raytheon keeps values and goals at the forefront of its company behavior. The organization is also supportive of employees seeking to be innovative, celebrating them at senior leadership levels. Organizational channels are effective (HR, Management).

    Cons

    While Raytheon values its people, your ability to work with organizations outside of your own (i.e. engineering to operations, etc.) may be hampered by the levels of bureaucracy that exist in the organization. Any company of Raytheon's size will have facets, just something to keep in mind. They can be overcome, but it takes some skill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a consistent advocate for your employees, and inform us of areas in which it's difficult for you to go to bat for us so we can improve them. Employees understand how critical having a supportive manager is, and it's defining for our motivation.

    I worked at Raytheon part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have some really nice perks, and go out of their way to make interns feel welcomed.

    Cons

    It's a typical bureaucratic workplace, it's hard to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge the interns! Some of the managers do, but many of them don't.
