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

Pros

Raytheon does promote career development, and their profit sharing provides incentive.

Cons

They no longer provide a pension. Their management is weak.

Advice to Management

When you plan to reduce staff for bottom line profit increases first consider offering experience engineers and valuable staff a chance to accept a pay decrease or grade cut.

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

    Pros

    The company is somewhat flexible.

    Cons

    Management is back stabbing. Dog eat dog. Let me pick and choose names to lay people off...as long as it's not one of the buddy boys.

    Advice to Management

    What would Jesus do? Walk the walk.

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

    Pros

    My immediate management was generous with letting me run the dept as long as I got things done and my efforts were value added.

    Cons

    I was hoping to retire from Raytheon but upper management did not look at the ramifications of laying me off. Many program managers I supported were confused why I was let go. If a manager is changed there is no means to communicate to a new manager how well employees are doing and all the rapport built up over the years is lost and you are just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care to keep your best employees. They deserve better.
