Pros: Seems pretty stable. Good Health Care.
Cons: Low pay. Treated like a grunt. Hard to move up. Non-existnt raises.
Raytheon does offer better vacation days than others, but unless you work for Corporate, forget about it. Working as a contractor, you do not get much. In addition, you are required to go to Raytheon meetings that are on you own time, unlike other companies that pay you for your time in a Corporate meeting. Continuing Education is also a joke and requires that you pay everything up front and you "might" get re-reimbursed. A lot of training is required (out-of pocket) once you get hired and you get a $2.00 pen as a thanks. My salary range is $75k-$100k (WAY below the market value for my job). They maintain the standard, "You are what makes this company great!" and, "We couldn't do it without you!" but in the end you are just a number that no one knows by name unless you either invent something to make the company millions or you get in trouble a lot.
