Negative Outlook
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

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent, fellow employees are good to work with- always one or two apples- but for the most part fellow employees take pride and train the new guys-

    Cons

    Work shift leaders none stop no time off 20-30 days in a row poor management of personnel- very poor training for new hires- low end to mid level leadership- get on board you learn from other employees- poor field management/leadership- nothing is done for moral and well being of employees. Some of Raytheons policies are way overboard and again field management is weak and is dictated by mid to upper level desk management personnel that has no idea what goes on in the field

    Advice to Management

    Look at how you work and treat employees- expecially range management - moral very low

    Pros

    Decent benefits.
    Friendly coworkers.
    Relevant programming languages, java, c sharp

    Profit sharing, woot!

    Cons

    R6sigma is excessive
    Business casual = bleh
    Super structured raises
    Female engineer friendly, I have not had much issue or hassle

    Advice to Management

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