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

Pros

The company allows for a relatively flexible work schedule, and has great work/life balance. They have a system called the 9/80 schedule where you can choose to work 80 hours over the course of 9 days and take every other Friday off (given there's no urgent work that needs to be completed).

Cons

- There isn't a much of a training guideline for new hires, and management seems to expect the employees to figure it out.
- The HR department is quite slow in processing anything, and also relatively inflexible in negotiations (part of it due to being a large company).
- Politics also play a big part in in the company, and functions in quite an old-fashioned manner (having unwritten rules of what is qualified as a promotion).
- Culture isn't particularly friendly or unfriendly, very much just a place to work and go home to family, don't expect to make a lot of buddies from work who all grab beer together afterwards.

Advice to Management

Spend more time recruiting and developing recent college graduates, as it would bring in more energy, creativity, and a gradual change in the overall work environment (to become more vivacious).

    The company was better off when it was diversified, prior to the sell off of its commercial assets.
