    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".

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

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

    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.

    Pros

    People are really nice to work with. They are willing to teach you what they know especially the senior staff. The environment is comfortable, sometimes you do feel lost in the crowd.

    Cons

    Overtime I find that the salary doesn't match up to new hires. The yearly pay raise is capped, so it is hard to stay competitive.
