    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, I love the 9/80 schedule. Good Paid Time Off (PTO).

    Cons

    Overhead and deadweight employees are slowly killing Raytheon and driving the business out of California. All manufacturing business is moving little by little to Texas & Mississippi. Raytheon has a horrible problem of promoting incompetency.

    Advice to Management

    Too many middle managers who lack experience in the fields they manage.

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

    Pros

    Large company, major business unit of Raytheon Company which is a major defense contractor. Starting 4/1/2013, RTSC combined with Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems to become Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services business unit. Numerous avenues for career growth, good benefits, solid business model and potential.

    Cons

    Frequent reorganization. Tends to be high-priced on contracts which limits the number of contracts they win in this competitive environment. Cross functional team management structure causes a lot of cost and schedule overhead, slow to make business decisions, slow to change.

    Advice to Management

    Need to streamline decision making and lower overheads by trimming the organization.
