Pros

The people and the technology was the best. Worked for them for 25 years? Excellent resource groups and activities

Cons

Our facility was small and had limited opportunities. But being small made it feel like a family, since you knew everyone

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some excellent high-tech projects to work on. I wound up learning lots in my 8+ years at Raytheon. As there are many great engineers there, I found it motivating to work on the teams.

    Cons

    Engineering managers are promoted based on how well they do as engineers, not whether they make a good manager. I had a few great, but mostly awful managers who were completely clueless as to how to manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers on how to manage, or don't promote them if they can't deal with people!
