I have been working at Raytheon full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good compensation, good benefits, challenging technical work

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, too much regional protection of work, clearing out of senior talent in lieu of junior engineers when RIFs occur.

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

    Pros

    Interesting technical work for skilled engineers. Engineering problems are challenging and diverse. Opportunities for professional growth are abundant and there are clearly established career paths to follow

    Cons

    The company is very large - upwards of 70,000 employees. In any organization that size, beauracracy becomes entrenched. Raytheon is a very process driven organization. Knowing how to navigate within the process can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider making performance bonuses a larger part of the entire compensation package
