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

Pros

A strong technology company with core strength in communications. Raytheon has been around since the 20's and is a strong defense contractor

Cons

It can be a bit soggy though but what do you expect from a defense contractor.

Advice to Management

Perhaps more programs that include social media will attract more talent. Also, you don't have to look overseas to find top notch talent to train. The bay area is full of local talent ripe for the picking.

    "Life rolls over you at Raytheon with layoffs of 5000-10,000 people in 2013"

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in McKinney, TX

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

    Pros

    Good Salary, Great Benefits... unless you get laid off

    Cons

    Layoffs resulting from Senior management failing to remain competitive and rely on sole source contract renewals versus competing for new business resulting in the demise of at least one of the major business divisions at Raytheon. The leaders get the golden parachutes while the employees get the layoff notices... 5,000-10,000 of them in 2013 with Wall Street cheering on the current CEO who is also about to retire and wants to preserve the value of his stock options.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    9/80 Work Schedule (Every other Friday off)

    Cons

    The "Forced Rating System" is used not allowing actual deserved performance ratings by supervisors (i.e. most great performers told they are doing fair only or unacceptable).
    there is forced employment reductions of employees over 50 years of age (their form of the movie "Logan;s Run"). Most managers are managers only with no experience about what their staff does (non-technical).

    Advice to Management

    A new CEO with "christian faith" must make major changes to culture.
