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

    Pros

    Stable, great PTO benefits, 9/80 schedule

    Cons

    Low annual raises, promotions and better raises are reserved for the top 5% and are more subjective than objective

    Advice to Management

    Tie merit increases completely to the program's input and not base it on functional input. This seems like it would not reward employees for improving the department. However, employees can be rewarded by individual and team awards for their functional efforts. In short, program input should decide merit raises and awards should be used to drive functional improvements.
