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

Pros

Great benefits including 401K with matching contributions up to 4% of salary, modified time, overtime for salaried at straight time for hours over 40.

Flexible, no rigid start and end of workday time.

Reliable source of employment for past 10+ years. Stability not highly dependent on stock price.

Cons

Lots of bureaucracy, hard to get anything done which wears on you.
Lots of people in higher positions in large part because of advanced degree, not because of experience or merit.
Small annual raises for most people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Eliminate clique culture. have managers that are true managers not engineers 90% of their time and managers only 10%.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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