    Cons

    Constantly changing org structure. High attrition rate of employees. A lot of over east and US control. Very poor comms internally.

    I worked at Raytheon Australia full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Big organisation, company phone, great money.

    Cons

    Work wasn't what I thought it would be. Definitely couldn't make a career out of this position, although they expected me to. Almost pressured it even. Work/life balance absolutely sucked for me.

    Pros

    Great people: Very professional, capable workforce who know how to take it easy every now and then. Strong culture of high ethical standard. Dedicated to proper Project Management practices. Strong management team and management successions.

    Cons

    Lots of work, few personnel, hard to get sufficient resource for programs. Invested heavily in regular management reviews which take too much resource and creates stressful environment at times. Pay increases do not reflect company performance. It is hard to get significant increase year in year out.

    I have been working at Raytheon Australia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is really friendly and willing to help you out.

    Cons

    The is a very large age gap in the company. It is hard to make true friends when you're still at university and the second youngest person is 10 years older than you. There are also a lot of regulations and paperwork when dealing with defence. This also means that the work can become very very slow.
