I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, most offices allow flexible work schedules or a 9/80 work schedule. Casual work environment and most managers are very approachable.

Cons

It can be hard to move around to different projects, and there are not many opportunities for advancement in the current market. A lot of company practices seem to be old-fashioned, and many teams don't use current industry-wide tools and practices.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting technical work for skilled engineers. Engineering problems are challenging and diverse. Opportunities for professional growth are abundant and there are clearly established career paths to follow

    Cons

    The company is very large - upwards of 70,000 employees. In any organization that size, beauracracy becomes entrenched. Raytheon is a very process driven organization. Knowing how to navigate within the process can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Consider making performance bonuses a larger part of the entire compensation package

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

    Pros

    Varied career paths, engineering, quality, supply chain, operations, finance. Decent on the job training. There is something for everyone, you just need to find it. Benefits are good, but get slightly more expensive every year. Work Life Balance depends on role - as my responsibility & utility to the company has grown, my life balance has eroded.

    Cons

    Huge company, easy to get lost in the bureaucracy. Company tends to be reactive to employee development vs. proactive. Front line management is not empowered for substantial action, decisions tend to be made 2 levels up.

    Advice to Management

    Be a leader, not a follower
