    Pros

    Opportunities for growth within the company exist, but you have to be proactive about finding them. Lots of opportunity to transfer between functions and different organizations within and outside of business units. Great tuition reimbursement policy for those seeking graduate degrees.

    Cons

    Subject to the ebb and flow of congressional defense spending and national politics.

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits, friendly people to work with most of the time, generally a positive environment.

    Cons

    In the IIS division, the company doesn't sell products or solutions to the government. The reality is that it sells man-hours, which means that it doesn't matter a whole lot whether or not you do a good job at what you do. This is a problem with most large government contractors who build software, not just Raytheon, however. Way too much middle management with no technical experience who end up making technical decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to change the entire focus of the IIS division from selling as many man-hours as possible to selling quality products and solutions instead. We need to take some cues from smaller, higher-quality companies like Palantir.
