I worked at Raytheon full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They have had longevity as a company till now, salary and benefits are good. There is no indication of discrimination.

Cons

Work space built for keeping eye on employees--dehumanizing lack of privacy, in fact, dehumanizing in general. Concern seems to be ultimately with form, not function--politics. Research and development there is essentially dead--the company's future seems to depend upon shrewd lobbying with Washington. Worked for (legacy-Hughes) Raytheon about a decade before, things have gone far downhill in my view. I was warned about these realities by a former supervisor before hiring in--but I couldn't afford to heed his advice, as I needed the work for as long as it lasted.

Advice to Management

Greater sensitivity to your employees, not "politically correct" tinsel for PR. Invest seriously in IR&D -- particularly your semiconductor/general-electronics capabilities -- if you are serious about the company having a future and not just scraping a good look on the next quarter profits presentation. Raytheon was once a good company with a future--its up to you to make it such again.
