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

Pros

Solid company that has wisely invested in both foreign and domestic contracts. Merit based promotions seem fair. Decent opportunities. Company will train you if needed. You can easily make a lifetime career with this company.

Cons

Large company that has too many processes/red tape at times for domestic contracts. United Healthcare is a terrible HMO if you have a family. You will get a bill for everything related to your children/pregnancy/prescriptions.

Advice to Management

Allow your Section Managers more time to work with their personnel in regards to careers. SMs are required to spend 3/4 of their time on business contracts and the personnel are often neglected and not grown properly. It is often sink-or-swim on your own.

    I worked at Raytheon as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Raytheon has a lot of great employee networks to get to no others outside of your workgroup and for professional and personal growth. They have a gym and credit union on site (in Tucson). Everyone is helpful and casual, and people are always willing to talk to you about their job so you can continually learn more. The schedule is a 9hrs/day for 9 days (8 hrs during on-Fridays), so that every other Friday is an off-day. AS a bonus, there's a Mexican food truck on-site that is great!

    Cons

    After being an intern for four years at Raytheon, I did not get a full time job from them in 2009.
