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

Pros

They are truly a large corporation with all of the characteristics that go along with that. Good processes in place, opportunities for advancement. The best part of Raytheon are the great people who work there. Good compensation, but raise percentages were declining in the last 6 years; mirroring the employment environment; also driven by the particular area and focus of the business area you're in.

Cons

Raytheon touts their people as their best and most important asset, but that doesn't match their decisions and actions. Still a strongly dominated male environment in spite of some new female leaders appointed. More challenging for women to be recognized as innovative contributors. Very political company which drives leadership behavior, benefiting the leaderships' careers. Indianapolis has different benefits than the other RTN companies. Recommendation -- is if you have a choice, work for another division; but still a company I would work for again.

Advice to Management

None; they wouldn't take it anyways.

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

    Pros

    Other than some decent pay for entry-level positions, I can't think of any pros about working for this company.

    Cons

    Time card fraud occurs on a daily basis. Instead of seeing how much money this company can save the government customer in dollars, they see how much they can spend, spend, spend! As a result, the employees are affected by being forced to work unnecessary overtime. Some employees were instructed by their leads to do 25 hours of overtime a week despite the lack of work to support such overtime. Some employees watch Youtube to pass the time, yet their supervisors hand them government contract charge numbers like candy. All of this lowers employee morale, because really, people want a personal life. With low employee morale, there is a high attrition rate as well. Therefore, more overtime to spend the government's money forced on only a handful of people! Needless to say, things get a bit hostile, increasing stress. But this company is too afraid to dispose of hostile workers. Their policies open them to lawsuits.

    Advice to Management

    If you're having employees work 25 hours of overtime a week, having them sit there and do nothing during those hours? The government probably needs to cut your budget for the next year. Your company promotes a work/life balance and ethics. You probably follow those ideas.
