    I worked at Raytheon full-time for 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!

    I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    One of the few employers in town not in the service industry.

    Cons

    Campaigns to get good ratings for share holders, not the reality of working there. People aren't treated on an equal level based on knowledge, it's all about who likes who.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the micro mangers. Treat people with respect, make that reality and not just a banner.
