No opinion of CEO

I worked at Raytheon as an intern (More than 3 years)

Pros

Raytheon is a global leader in the defense industry and is a very innovative company. Everyone is very friendly and professional.

Cons

Unfortunately, the defense industry is mainly run off government spending and can be a roller coaster ride. The economy plays a big factor in defense spending and many times the defense budget is cut.

Advice to Management

My advice to management would be to try and hire more of the younger generation. The foundation of Raytheon appears to be middle aged to older employees with very set views.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been there 9 years and they treat me like a king. Flexible hours, tons of recognition, tons of good work, love it there! bonuses, and decent raises

    Cons

    my results are not typical, most people get 2-3% raises and no bonuses, u need to take initiative to make it big

    Advice to Management

    need better development programs for new hires and employees who are stagnant, need bigger raises and need bigger starting salaries, so many commercial companies pay more

    Great place to work.

    Very much a "high tech" environment

    Cons

    Sometimes quite bureaucratic
    Direct funded program/positions are not as secure as overhead positions
    Some Sr. Management very arrogant and not easy to deal with

    Advice to Management

    Dont be afraid to look outside of your industry for best practices
    Keep the talent pipeline open for Sr. Managment
