Pros

Good balance of time scheduling. Work 9 hours a day for nine days and get every other friday off. Work hours are flexible too, can make up time when necessary.

Cons

Having to keep charge numbers for every little task can be annoying at times. Getting things done can take a long time sometimes because of all the paperwork necessary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication between section heads and program heads.

    very poor recruitment practices for technical jobs
    Equal access to promotions with legitimate business reasons, such as tenure, experience or skills?
    Workforce environment is grapevine (rumor controlled)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid Level Management is very limited in leadership skills, inexperienced job knowledge, and very poor communication skills.

    Pros

    A technology based company, Raytheon products support first responders in emergencies, protect the lives of servicemen and women, facilitate safe travel and other efforts an employee can be proud to have contributed to. The company has multiple sites across the United States, and hires for engineering, manufacturing and multiple functional disciplines. Raytheon promotes core values, and is committed to diversity and inclusion.

    Cons

    The company leans to the conservative, however, this allows Raytheon to perform with consistency. In terms of talent acquisition, requisitions for new hires tend to be written for a siloed approach (for example, to be successful, a candidate must possess X years within the silo; someone with transferrable skills may be "screened out" if their experience comes from another discipline)--not that this is any different than industry peers. Lateral moves for rotational development require a creative approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modify screening tools to allow for a candidate to respond with requirement equivalents. Add text boxes. Create more flexibility for rotational models.
