I have been working at Raytheon

Pros

Good for work-life balance
internal culture of respect for individuals
proactive treatment of minorities and women
good benefits, competitive pay

Cons

Too big to manage as "one-company",
mid-level management values short-term gain over common sense and long term growth
Riged expensive processes that inhibit innovation, creativity and common sense
Clueless corporate marketing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Selectively eliminate layers of middle management and empower employees
Hire mid-level managers from the commercial sector (vs defense & aerospace)
Value soft skills more - especially ability to build and motivate effecctive teams
Recognize engineers are not interchangable in a job category
