I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Varied career paths, engineering, quality, supply chain, operations, finance. Decent on the job training. There is something for everyone, you just need to find it. Benefits are good, but get slightly more expensive every year. Work Life Balance depends on role - as my responsibility & utility to the company has grown, my life balance has eroded.

Cons

Huge company, easy to get lost in the bureaucracy. Company tends to be reactive to employee development vs. proactive. Front line management is not empowered for substantial action, decisions tend to be made 2 levels up.

Advice to Management

Be a leader, not a follower

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

    Pros

    Most business units will do all they can to keep most employees rather than have them resign or terminate

    Cons

    Some business units have entirely too much turnaround with either recurring layoffs or poor management that results in a rising number of employees resigning.

    Advice to Management

    The company has created a foundation for pillars of Respect. Please use them openly and honestly without reprocussion.


  2. "Steady company, merit-based promotions"

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solid company that has wisely invested in both foreign and domestic contracts. Merit based promotions seem fair. Decent opportunities. Company will train you if needed. You can easily make a lifetime career with this company.

    Cons

    Large company that has too many processes/red tape at times for domestic contracts. United Healthcare is a terrible HMO if you have a family. You will get a bill for everything related to your children/pregnancy/prescriptions.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your Section Managers more time to work with their personnel in regards to careers. SMs are required to spend 3/4 of their time on business contracts and the personnel are often neglected and not grown properly. It is often sink-or-swim on your own.
