Pros

Good balance of time scheduling. Work 9 hours a day for nine days and get every other friday off. Work hours are flexible too, can make up time when necessary.

Cons

Having to keep charge numbers for every little task can be annoying at times. Getting things done can take a long time sometimes because of all the paperwork necessary.

Advice to Management

Better communication between section heads and program heads.

    Pros

    A technology based company, Raytheon products support first responders in emergencies, protect the lives of servicemen and women, facilitate safe travel and other efforts an employee can be proud to have contributed to. The company has multiple sites across the United States, and hires for engineering, manufacturing and multiple functional disciplines. Raytheon promotes core values, and is committed to diversity and inclusion.

    Cons

    The company leans to the conservative, however, this allows Raytheon to perform with consistency. In terms of talent acquisition, requisitions for new hires tend to be written for a siloed approach (for example, to be successful, a candidate must possess X years within the silo; someone with transferrable skills may be "screened out" if their experience comes from another discipline)--not that this is any different than industry peers. Lateral moves for rotational development require a creative approach.

    Advice to Management

    Modify screening tools to allow for a candidate to respond with requirement equivalents. Add text boxes. Create more flexibility for rotational models.

    Pros

    great people to work with! everyone is driven for success and safety of our boys and girls who are on the front battle lines

    Cons

    management is a joke! they have a new initiative of the day, and when the vp's get bored, its something new.

    Advice to Management

    change practices take more than a wish and 2 months! if you want things to get better, get the fellows to actually do something besides have coffee and complain and moan
