    Pros

    High job security, all OT is paid because of contract work.

    Obsolete tools and processes. We're still using ClearCase for version control, and "bad scrum".

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and schedules Contracts tend to disincentivize requirements for overtime (i.e. 40 hours a week is typical for many workers) Large company size leads to a diversity of projects, job roles, and locations when one wants a change without going to a new company

    Cons

    Large company size leads to inflexibility in procedures and rules Contracts come with a fair amount of red tape Security requirements often slow work progress Processing of IT, shipping, other types of internal requests can be very slow

    Great work life balance. Good coworkers. Working with new, Interesting, marketable technologies.

    Not a fan of the defense industry. Prefer to see technological effort be put into supporting veterans when the come home. Tools for re-integrating into society, prosthetics, etc.

    Work hard, and you'll will get rewarded. But, things move slow in the defense industry.

    Pros

    Raytheon has given me a chance to prove myself and get promoted. Sure there are differences in various managers in different departments on both the functional and program side, but I think that if you prove yourself, management will notice. They have noticed me and treated me very well. I've been contacted by other companies, but at this time, I'm happy with Raytheon because of the way they've promoted me and noticed my hard work.

    Cons

    You're in the defense business and if your're new to it then dealing with security is going to be long and painful. Everything moves VERY slow because of security and various processes. If you work on DoD Secret or even higher, get ready to lose your cell phones at work, and maybe even get cut off from the outside world for most of the day. Also, you can be on overhead for a while if you aren't immediately placed in a program. But once you are, things are good.

    Great company to work for with flexible hours, but care way too much about their metrics.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, 9/80 work weeks, Never gave trouble with taking vacation days, facilities are well taken care of, decent Job security -- they'll find new work for you or move you around when projects end others begin. If you know what you are doing, you'll be protected pretty well. Great benefits (health, dental, vision). Some projects have coffee and snacks. Friendly people, overall a great company to work for, all things considered. Would recommend working for this company.

    Cons

    Typical government contractor -- they care a way too much about metrics (lines of code, defect counts, etc) to the point where it actually slows down developers. Some people are really set in their ways, and some projects are extremely fearful of change and using new products/tools. When they do lay off, they tend to lay off developers before managers, so some projects end up being top heavy with more managers than developers sometimes. Managers give the impression that they care more about schedule than quality, or following industry best practices. Compensation seems low compared to commercial sector.
