    Pros

    Raythoen offers an attractive benefits package as well as a good work/life balance environment. Employees have the opportunity to work a "9/80" schedule which allows for every other Friday off.

    Cons

    There is a terrible negative vibe in the workplace. Too many older workers feel entitled and are extremely lazy. The HR department has too much say in promotions and raises instead of direct supervisors who see an employees direct performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should consider shifting some authoritative decision making power to the mid-level management staff so decisions can be made quicker. Treat each employee as an indivdual and not just another number by rewarding/recognizing hardwork.

    Overall a good place to get your feet wet for an engineer, but not a place for professional development.

    Pros

    Working for Raytheon will expose you to a number of competent and experienced individuals. There is a lot to be learned from the older peers as long as you can find the right programs to work on where you can interact with these people.

    Cons

    The management team tends to be very disconnected from the people who they lead, often making decisions that run counter to the information they are given. The ability for younger engineers to advance and develop is hindered by the lack of focus by management on the topic.
