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

Pros

I believe Raytheon consistently delivers more technically sound engineering solutions than our competitors. Unfortunately, we historically lack shrewd business sense, which has, at times, cost us contracts. A recent change over in senior management seems to be actively working to improve the company in this area.

A great opportunity to work in a variety of roles across all aspects of the business. The company actively encourages professional growth and allows employees flexibility for their personal needs.

Cons

Business scope is often limited by the nature of this industry. Raytheon is primarily known as a missile and radar company. We have tried to expand our repertoire some, but it is often an uphill battle to get people in the company to stretch beyond our company's core competency.

Advice to Management

I would like to see the company start explore more private ventures, and not have to solely rely on the changing whims of the elected officials in Washington.

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

    Pros

    Excellent compensation with equally great benefits. State-of-the-art software and hardware tools available to help you complete your project. Good team-focused approach to project completions.

    Cons

    Project schedules / timelines aren't bases on realistic and obtainable goals. Employees are pressured to support these unrealistic schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Consider input from employees when project schedules are developed. Be willing to accept realistic and obtainable goals rather than "must complete no matter what"
