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

Pros

Excellent benefits, company paid shutdown around Christmas and New Years, diversity, flexible schedule, telecommuting, employee discounts, company iPhone, performance profit sharing, stability of the company, access to current technology, paid time off / vacation is better than many companies offer, paid training, 401k, good work life balance.

Cons

Company politics, lack of communication and flow down from leadership, excessive bureaucracy to get things done in some cases.

Advice to Management

Improve communication from mid level management to employees. Reduce the amount of bureaucracy as it is a major barrier to innovation especially in IT.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, some good businesses, good people

    Cons

    Micromanaging, intimidation, too much inside looking, not agile

    Advice to Management

    the old style of micromanaging just doesn't work in a highly competitive environment. Also focused on internal initiatives more than business itself

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    For someone who enjoys a process-focused environment with a lot of interesting projects and work, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Company culture was very political so successful people tended to be those who had the best high connections, to the detriment of the business sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Go outside of your box in networking with employees to get good ideas and a feeling for how employees really feel.
