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.

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

    Pros

    Challenging work, bright people, competitive salary, generous benefits with opportunties across many organizations throughout the US.

    Cons

    Managment is resistant to change, does not always respect opinions of employees and may stifle the career otherwise ambitious and talented employees to look elsewhere. Large programs may ramp down quickly leaving little choice but to downsize.

    Advice to Management

    Try to respect opinions of new employees and allow them to choose thier career path. Provide sufficient resources for people to perform at thier best.

    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.
