    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.

    Approves of CEO

    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
