I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

In general they respect the employees. Everyone that I worked with got along and all worked together to make a success. They encourage employee development and emphasize ethics.

Cons

Reviews only differentiate employees when supervision/management intends to take some kind of action on them in the near future. (Intended promotion or warning to improve performance.) This results in poorly performing employees being retained for many years and good ones being let go.

Advice to Management

Involve supervisors in layoff decisionis.

    Pros

    Good Health Benefits as well as dental and vision. Also a 401k plan with company matching up to three percent. Regular hours and some overtime available.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost. Layoffs can come without notice. Once in a position it is very difficult to move to another job.
