    I worked at Raytheon

    Pros

    * Great life/work balance
    * Flexible hours (many managers are sensitive to commutes/child care issues)
    * Interesting work
    * Fair compensation
    * Relatively low stress
    * 9/80 work week (businesses) or summer hours (corporate)
    * Resources (on-site dry cleaning/banking/health services/cafeteria)
    * Many nice people

    Cons

    * Can be cliquey - much like high school
    * Some paranoid people - lack of trust for no reason
    * Senior management is not approachable/visible
    * Some people are stuck in their ways
    * Change is difficult - often have to do things the "Raytheon way", just because
    * Poor communication between managers and employees
    * Lack of transparency
    * No formal telecommuting policy
    * Hypocrisy - huge emphasis is placed on respect, yet many people don't even acknowledge co-workers in the hall
    * Many levels makes it difficult to complete projects
    * Difficult to get promoted/move into new roles. You are losing talented people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach - Respect employees. Say hello to people. Posting articles about respect/delivering webcasts does not cut it.
    Be visible - Walk the halls and talk to the people doing the work. Eat in the cafe every once in a while.
