If you want to attract younger engineers encourage a more casual environment. Nobody enjoys wearing button ups and slacks.

    Pros

    Raytheon keeps values and goals at the forefront of its company behavior. The organization is also supportive of employees seeking to be innovative, celebrating them at senior leadership levels. Organizational channels are effective (HR, Management).

    Cons

    While Raytheon values its people, your ability to work with organizations outside of your own (i.e. engineering to operations, etc.) may be hampered by the levels of bureaucracy that exist in the organization. Any company of Raytheon's size will have facets, just something to keep in mind. They can be overcome, but it takes some skill.

    Advice to Management

    Be a consistent advocate for your employees, and inform us of areas in which it's difficult for you to go to bat for us so we can improve them. Employees understand how critical having a supportive manager is, and it's defining for our motivation.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours and schedule
    Depending on the groups, very good a fostering young talent
    Great Heathcare Benefits

    Cons

    Benefits and salary are based on the 'pension' model. If you're lucky enough to have made the deadline before they only offered 401k matching it's amazing. A hire to retire company. Having missed that date, I believe the cut of was 2009, it's tough to justify staying at the salaries they offer.

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation
    Recognize talent outside of the LDPs
    Loosen HRs strangle hold on managers to move and grow talent
