Pros

Large company with flexibility to move around to other departments and/or other geographic locations. Intelligent employees who value diversity and a strong work ethic. Strong social programs offer activities for the 35-and-under crowd.

Cons

Sometimes you have to go and find your own work to do, especially when you're new and/or don't have much experience. Managers should help with this but they have other needs to address first. The job is what you make of it. Work load is inconsistent - some weeks are crazy busy but others can be a downright bore.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You do a great job of valuing your employees with rewards, events, etc. Gen Y employees desire to take leadership and ownership of their projects, so they risk feeling inconsequential when assigned a bullet list of tasks.

    Pros

    Raytheon is a great place to develop strong forecasting and communication skills. Other benefits include - world-wide locations, 9/80 schedules, and great health/work life benefits.

    Cons

    Career advancement is not always balanced and is generally focused on years of experience versus talent. Job resposibilities are not always defined and high turnover coupled with staffing issues linger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important to invest in the young talent. If this does not happen, who will be left to keep the company afloat after the Hughes employees retire.
