Pros

The retirement plan is one of the best that I have seen. The medical benefits were some of the most affordable in major DOD contractors

Cons

Depending on the program you work for positions can be very political and clique. The hiring standards can be loose so sometimes you find yourself surrounded by idiots.

Advice to Management

Take notice of mid-managements patterns and tactics. Raytheon has lost some very good strong employees over issues from middle managers.

    Pros

    Very good company, while I have only worked at one location I have visited other work sites and the experience has been the same. Lower and upper management is very supportive of their employees.

    Cons

    Not a company fault in reality, but as contracts get awarded over time you find yourself with less appealing working/contract conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider Operational Priorities during contract process and reconsider re-classifications of positions as an option (for example where three technicians were needed, now can be used 2 operators and 1 technician) as your systems evolve.


  2. "Overall, a very good company and a great experience."

    Pros

    The people are technically excellent and are easy to work with. The pay and benefits are competitive and there is usually interesting and challenging work to do. 9/80 (every other Friday off) schedule and flexible work hours support the “Work Life Balance” that they promote.

    Cons

    While Raytheon is a great company, their Florida staff is Top Heavy, leaving little room for career advancement. They have been reducing their overall staff for several years now, while still bringing in new grads. They have not won any new business in quite some time.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt more streamlined processes over current expensive ones (CMMI).
