    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

    Cons

    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
