    I worked at Raytheon Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It's a big company with lots of really smart people. I enjoyed getting the opportunity to learn from and work alongside those smart people. The fact that it's such a big company means there are lots of opportunities if you find yourself in a role that you don't like - but sometimes that means you have to be willing to move. I felt respected there. I received meaningful feedback during performance reviews and good raises.

    Cons

    It often times seemed like 20% of the people were doing 80% of the work. Some people could find themselves in a repetitive role if you weren't proactive about making expanding their skills.

    I have been working at Raytheon Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    *NOTE: This varies based on program/work location as a "corporate" employee, not an FSE. *New an interesting coding projects to tear into with "almost" complete impunity. Motivated and energetic co-workers who are more than willing to help their fellow developer/devops/sysad when necessary.

    Cons

    *NOTE: This varies based on program/work location as a "corporate" employee, not an FSE. *Program budget/scope compared to others can often lead to unexpected/undesired moving around within the company. Such a move may lead to new working environment/co-workers who may/may not clique with you. Smaller programs are more prone to this issue. *Development CI/CD practices vary wildly between programs. Working on joint projects can prove to be cumbersome in many cases. *FOSS standards take a VERY long time to approve review with little to no chance to contest established standards of what is considered good practice (eg: the concept of restrictions on Static versus Public are different in older languages like C++ than they are in more modern languages like Java/C#/etc.)

    I have been working at Raytheon Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Mostly interesting and stable work. Friendly and intelligent coworkers. Opportunity exists to move around between projects or learn new technologies.

    Cons

    A lot of wasted time on bureaucracy. Pay increases are fairly small (average 2-3% for a department). Open office concepts infecting the company.

    I have been working at Raytheon Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Pays well - The benefits are very good - Stable organizational structure - Large company, so it's easy to move around to new areas - Profit sharing is good

    Cons

    - Stodgy culture - Due to the nature of the business there is an underlying culture of paranoia and security concerns - Also, the culture isn't exactly fun. In fact, if you are having fun at work, you can be seen as goofing off. Everything is taken very seriously even when not necessary - Lots of former military folks also contribute to the culture - Very conservative when it comes to picking technology. It's a big ship and they do not move quickly. They still use Lotus Notes as email client, for instance - Wholly dependent on government funding and contracts which can lead to some job insecurity

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

    Pros

    Programs are interesting from a domain perspective, and the work life balance used to be awesome (this has changed recently because of horrible "leadership" decisions)

    Cons

    For a company that produces software, upper management seems clueless to how to focus on software development and instead thinks having legions of book bosses and spreadsheet wizards will make things better
