    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, 9/80 program, diversified culture. You can find people come to work for Raytheon from over the world.

    Cons

    Too political. You must socialize or have connection to survive rounds of layoff. Same thing when there's no much work to do, if you are your boss's buddy then chance you always have work to do.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to all employees. Disclose available info up front not wait until the last minute then announce reduce work force

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Relatively easy to move around and work on different projects. Proactive behavior is generally rewarded. People are nice. Job is stable. Hours are normal.

    Cons

    Given size of company, politics is huge. Difficult to be agile and to make decisions since everything has to go through a process. Some engineers who have been with the company for a long time refuse to accept change.

    Advice to Management

    Be flexible and be willing to change if a process doesn't make sense
