I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Up front about expectations. Pay is okay. Benefits can be expensive. Fitness facility is great.

Cons

It's easy to get pigeon-holed into doing the same thing over and over . Can be very cliquey depending on leadership. Lack of training opportunities. Difficult to get ahead.

Advice to Management

It's too easy to ruin someone's career by giving them a bad review. Need an appeals board of some kind to prevent this.

    Very exciting technologies and rewarding results of your hard work

    Too many hours and sacrifices without a proportionate amount of recognition and rewards (e.g. Bonuses, Salary & Job Grade increases, etc..)

    Advice to Management

    Go above and beyond to take care of the staff that bend over backwards to make your programs successful in order to hold on to their services and benefit from their amazing contributions

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

    Pros

    The pros of the job are good benefits, flexible 9/80 schedule, smart people to work with, career growth, interested in helping you succeed.

    Cons

    The work get's clustered in areas of the country, so one place has way too much work and another doesnt have enough which them results in lay-offs.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to try to spread the programs evenly throughout the entire company, so there are not pockets of the company with little work which then can means layoffs.
