I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Committed to diversity. Has won awards for LGBT support. Opportunities for flexible work schedules to include 9/80 and some telecommuting.

Cons

Some parts of the company/older generation still subject to top down management. Very large company of 64,000 means there are inevitable areas of waste and mismanagement. Current atmosphere is challenging due to dwindling defense budgets.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, great experience, great benefits, and good (if sporadic) opportunities. The technological challenges and projects are interesting and rewarding.

    Cons

    The whole business seems to be in such a state of flux, that you don't know what you'll be doing from one year to the next. Also, your quality of work life can vary dramatically from one location or project to another. On one project you'll feel like you have management support, you'll work mostly 40 hours a week, and people get along. On another project, you'll work 60 hours a week, you'll constantly dread a conversation or request for status from your manager, and everyone constantly talks about how bad it is.

    Advice to Management

    Put some teeth in your excellent policies spelling out behavior guidelines and respect. Having management police themselves does not work.


  2. "Good company with varied business organizations."
