    Pros

    I really enjoyed working here. Particularly in my department - DSL or IKT. I did a lot of interesting work. The benefits and flexibility to work part time and at times from home made for an excellent work/life balance for someone with many family commitments. The PMs were great they new their stuff and were generous.

    Cons

    Some of the higher management were prima-donnas. Not all departments had the same level of good management or work/life flexibility as mine.

    Advice to Management

    I hope being bought by Raytheon does not kill the company culture.

    Pros

    The people: Innovative, creative, vibrant. Lots of ways to connect with fellow employees both formally and informally. Easy place to create a network and see where it may lead.

    Cons

    Stagnant approach to business. Management is stuck in the rut of what worked 20 years ago must work now. On the employee side, too many are happy with what they used to do. Add to that the fact that 'Cambridge is the Center of the Universe' to those who work at the Center of the Universe.

    Advice to Management

    You better get past the 'There is BBN and then there is Raytheon' mentality real soon. You are now part of a huge conglomerate. Period.
