I have been working at Raytheon BBN Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of smart people who are passionate about what they do, laid back culture, just about everyone has their own office, great work/life balance

Cons

Lack of career growth for non-technical staff, recently acquired by Raytheon = more red tape and more uncertainty surrounding the future.

    Pros

    BBN hires smart people and expects you to use your intelligence to solve difficult problems.
    Everyone at BBN is committed to doing the best job possible.
    At BBN you get to work on cutting edge technologies and invent future technologies (email and the ARPAnet were invented at BBN).

    Cons

    At BBN it can be hard to take a great idea and turn it into a product. BBN is quite good at prototypes and proofs of concepts.

    Pros

    -Very smart and accomplished co-workers.
    -Challenging highly technical problems.
    -Model encourages and relies on technical staff to bring in work.
    -Great opportunities for growth.
    -Extreme schedule flexibility and the option to work from home when appropriate.
    -Individual Offices.
    -High relative compensation.
    -Technical bonuses & strong benefits.

    Cons

    -I think I agree with the assessment that career advancement can be somewhat slower at BBN, partially just because co-workers are so competent that the bar is rather high when compared to the industry as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep fighting off any Raytheon policies that dont make sense for BBN.
