    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects, a very diverse workforce, and reasonable work/life balance. The smart engineers are very smart. ATEP (Advanced Technical Education Program) classes are taught by engineering fellows or aspiring fellows in diverse subject areas and open to all employees.

    Cons

    A bureaucratic organization. Security clearances make it difficult for average workers (non-superstars) to switch projects or teams easily. Unknown outlook because of sequester.

    Advice to Management

    Bridge the gulf between engineering and other disciplines - contracts, legal, and program management.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable, great PTO benefits, 9/80 schedule

    Cons

    Low annual raises, promotions and better raises are reserved for the top 5% and are more subjective than objective

    Advice to Management

    Tie merit increases completely to the program's input and not base it on functional input. This seems like it would not reward employees for improving the department. However, employees can be rewarded by individual and team awards for their functional efforts. In short, program input should decide merit raises and awards should be used to drive functional improvements.
