I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Interesting projects to work on. Friendly and smart coworkers. Feels like a family at work. Good benefits and a great company discount system.

Cons

Can be slow due to the nature of Defense Contracting. Jobs not always stable, since government policies are changing (especially with regard to national debt issue)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to diversify from Defense to keep cycles down.

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

    Pros

    For a government contractor, Benefits are good and Raytheon is competitive. Management is supportive of employees careers and encourages further education and training.

    Cons

    Upper management encourages innovative ideas and thinking from young engineers, but, Raytheon performs government contracting where the limits of innovation can be constrained by the contract that an engineer is assigned.
