    Some good, some bad. Come in as an early career HRG, and you'll be okay.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time

    Pros

    Pay seems to be at or above market. Raytheon is a big player in the defense industry, so you'll get to know it well. If you're an early career HR professional, this may be a great place to stay for a few years to get some experience.

    Cons

    Antiquated performance management philosophy, no real HR innovation. You're graded against your peers in order to get a raise, so no real incentive to collaborate with other HR people. Incredibly tactical, administrative HR function focused only on deadlines, not on process improvements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show up as leaders, not just managers. Reward those willing to innovate and find better ways to do to things. Figure out how to make the HR Services Model actually work so that every HR role isn't just a tactical / admin role.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Smart people working here
    Pretty good pay
    Great place to retire to if you are near that age

    Cons

    No free time
    Overly stressful organizational issues.
    Lots of reinventing the wheel.
    People don't take much personal responsibility for issues.
    Have to keep track of time worked on projects even if you are salaried.
    Not the kind of place for ambitious folk
