I have been working at Raytheon

Pros

Excellent compensation package and PTO
Great place to work with classes during the day or after hours offered by experts
some onsite degrees offered by the likes of JHU

Cons

ability to find interesting assignments is hampered by current defense industry climate
the commute is pretty harsh Traffic is terrible

Advice to ManagementAdvice

make it easier for junior engineers to find more interesting assignments and transition to other programs where there is more work

    Pros

    Raytheon has very good overall benefits, including a strong work/life balance, competitive salaries, and a very good college tuition reimbursement plan.

    Cons

    It's difficult to get promoted at Raytheon, and career growth is also limited. Advanced degrees aren't utilized; they are treated as a bonus.
