    Just because they can build rockets and hide UFOs doesn't mean they can operate a computer. Believe me...

    Pros

    As a defense contractor, there is a sense of satisfaction associated with supplying America’s military force with the products and services necessary to achieve strategic and tactical advantage.

    Cons

    This division of the company has challenges in recruiting and retaining the appropriately talented workforce to achieve technological prowess. Over the years, the benefits packages have increasingly failed to compete with other major regional employers.

    Advice to Management

    Take careful note of those employees who consistently display aptitude for greater degrees of responsibility. Don’t fall victim to the trap that someone must have decades with the company before they may capably lead. Doing so will ensure the loss of top performers and create multiplicative setbacks such that the organization spends greater degrees of time training new hires who ultimately walk out the door when they become disenchanted with the poor leadership of “lifers” who might as well be “retired-in-place.” There is no pension for new employees any longer, thereby eliminating the casual disregard you could afford in years past with respect to retention. The care and feeding you allot to your prized talent will ultimately determine the success of this organization.

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

    Pros

    The company feels very stable and it seems hard to get laid off in manufacturing as long as you are keeping up with everyone else.

    The company has a good tuition reimbursment program with some options being pay as you go with no commitment to the company while some other options require a two year commitment after graduation.

    Cons

    Benefits seem like they were top notch a decade ago and they have not kept up with the times. Business is still run like the old boys club.
