      I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Raytheon has a vast selection of product offerings and strives to operate at the highest levels of ethical/commercial compliance. Salaries are at competitive levels as well as benefits. My experience has been that there are many opportunities for advancement and staff are encouraged to move across roles/disciplines when one exhibits interest and ability.

      Cons

      As with most corporate organizations, decision making is very distributed across a complex management structure leading to very slow changes in business approaches. This company is well suited to executing large government programs as opposed to working in the commercial domain which requires a more competitive and agile approach.

      Advice to Management

      Current organization could be much more successful if market opportunities can be approached aggressively. Team members at Raytheon are all very experienced. capable. and committed to long term success...they would be prepared to support positive changes!

      I worked at Raytheon full-time

      Pros

      Good job if you have a family and want job security. Good salary. Work can be meaningful.

      Cons

      At least at my location, there was not a lot of young people. Having a security clearance allows you to get away with being less qualified.

      Advice to Management

      Get young people and make employee satisfaction part of the culture.

      I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Was once a great place to work delivering top of the line S and L-Band radar products.

      Cons

      Company has declined and is all but shutdown. It is sad to see the one proud Waterloo manufacturing facility closed.

      Advice to Management

      Thank you for all the great adventures.

      Pros

      Interesting work, with interesting travel.

      Cons

      Typical technically incompetent mgt running around unrestrained by their lack of knowledge. Their most valued leadership skill: they know they can worm their way out of responsibility.

      Advice to Management

      See above.

      I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Been a great place to work when I started under the management of Hughes.

      Cons

      Ever since take over by Raytheon, it has been getting worse. There was a clean house of management team, unnecessary restructuring, and practice of resources wasting. There has been unethical practices of revoking promised position of advancement to fellow employees.

      Advice to Management

      Don't be a know it all arse and mess up your employee's flow of jobs. Listen and trust them, for they know way more than you in what they are doing.
