I have been working at Raytheon full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lost of opportunities within, lots of CBT training, great projects. Possibility of staying technical or climb up the ladder. If you within a project-oriented competency (developer, researcher, scientist, Q/A, PMP, etc) couldn't find a better place...

Cons

... But if you are like me, a maintenance-oriented professional (DBAs, network/sys admins), well, it feels like trying to fit a round peg in a square hole. Also, the ever present chance that your project is cancelled due to government cuts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Business models are not "one-size fit all". Not all your business are project based, hence don't treat them as such.

    I worked at Raytheon as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    This is Raytheon BBN Technologies, not exactly Raytheon. I worked as an intern in the Speech, Language & Multimedia Technologies Business Unit. The working environment is good. My group has a discussion each week, talking about progress. People are nice. It's a good experience.

    Cons

    It's a research based company, mainly focusing on publishing papers. So it might not be suitable for everyone.
