No opinion of CEO

I worked at Raytheon as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

It's a job. That's all.

Cons

Disconnected, dishonest management. Too big to be aware of employee needs/concerns. Takes advantage of contract employees (no overtime paid for 17hr days, 70-80hr weeks). Laid off twice (large groups of people, not just one) in 4 years...once via conference call!!

Advice to Management

Start treating your contract employees like people. Provide worthwhile benefits. Quit lining your pockets with contract $$ and share some of it with the people earning it for you. Compensate your contractors fairly for the work they do.

    Pros

    stability, 401k contributin, work-life balance

    Cons

    lots of old-timers just waiting to retire. they are not productive and slow. while they are there, the rest of us can't get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    move the unproductive people out so the ambitious youth can get promoted and decide not to quit.
