    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance, innovative, strong reputation, and staying power.

    Cons

    Too much overhead. Too hard to steer the battleship quickly and maneuver in the competitive market.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink rate structure, need to change to keep up with the new kids on the block.

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

    Pros

    Company provided benefits still good, haven't fallen to "self-serve" style yet. Flexible working hours via approved flex schedules. Unlimited job opportunities via moving within Raytheon. Long term relationships with US gov't via legacy contracts provides "good view" of company.

    Cons

    Managers for remote/foreign location employees have a out-of-site/out-of-mind mentality. Raytheon says they value employees yet relationships with management leads one to believe we are just bodies filling slots.

    Advice to Management

    If you say you value employees then start acting like it and stop treating us as if we are just something to bill the gov't against. Listen to advice from people on the ground if you aren't going to invest with first-person visits to "get the lay of the land".

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and competitive compensation. Raytheon is a good company to work for. I have worked for Raytheon for 13 years.

    Cons

    In the last few years the benefits are starting to be reduced. This is especially the case with health care due to the ACA.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look out for your employees. this has always been a good aspect to working for Raytheon and it should continue to be so.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This was a position that was VERY close to home for me so convenience to leave for a child or doctor appointment was wonderful.

    Cons

    The Program Manager that hired me could be very straight forward and sometimes harsh in her direction or criticism which did make the interaction with her difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Positive communication with employees always makes a better working relationship. People are busy, I get it, but if you want someone to handle your every move in your absence, thorough communication with your assistant is a necessity!
