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

Pros

They hire engineers, pay for graduate school, and some of the projects are interesting. Work life balance is good.

Cons

Compensation: It varies wildly based on your "business." Employees in one business get more time off, profit sharing, and bonuses while others get nothing.

Promotions: If you are a new hire get ready to wait two years before your first promotion because regardless of how good you are at your job you wont get promoted before that. Get ready to see the guy sleeping in his cubicle, literally, get promoted at the same rate as you.

Advice to Management

Compensate and promote based on merit, not time served. Get rid of the dead weight.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Vacation; you start off with ample PTO (Paid-Time-Off) before you actually earn it. You get 10 Federal Holidays PLUS 2 floating holidays to use. The pay and benefits are great and depending on location the PTO also includes 10 duty-days off during the Christmas/New Year time. They have an excellent furlough policy/process

    Cons

    In the STL area - Raytheon had a SMALL presence - BUT they have a HUGE presence elsewhere in the US and overseas.

    Advice to Management

    Quarterly or semi-annual meetings either in person or VTC.
