    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When you are making products for the America's men and women in uniform, then you are doing work that saves lives and brings these heroes home to their families. The pay and benefits at Raytheon are great too.

    Cons

    The worst thing about working about Raytheon is the unpredicability of the business results. The Aerospace and Defense business has huge up and down swings. You never know when you might lose your job.

    Advice to Management

    Employees at Raytheon need more recognition for the work that they do, and how they contribute to the success of the business. Managers need to "connect the dots" to how their jobs relate to the overall company success.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent time off if you're allowed to take it.

    Cons

    Overworked; game-playing with budget numbers, including not showing time worked to avoid budget assignment (which is against company policy & used against you later for your lack of hours.....); management control v progress. Was a very stress inducing environment, & their were several deaths to to health problems, as well as 2 suicides shortly after I left.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your workers with respect and compensate them according to their sacrifices.
