I have been working at Raytheon full-time (more than a year)

Pros

A strong technology company with core strength in communications. Raytheon has been around since the 20's and is a strong defense contractor

Cons

It can be a bit soggy though but what do you expect from a defense contractor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Perhaps more programs that include social media will attract more talent. Also, you don't have to look overseas to find top notch talent to train. The bay area is full of local talent ripe for the picking.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, diverse locations and opportunities, particularly DoD related. Significant opportunities for growth in skills and training. Opportunities for travel to many US and international job sites. Strong reputation and recognition. Leading company with leading technologies. Great place to work for engineers, IT architects, project managers, etc.

    Cons

    Many IT jobs require security clearance, Some jobs contingent upon government contracts and may go away when the contract ends. Career growth hard, in some cases, if you can't relocate to another city/facility. Some jobs depend on on-going contract funding by the US government, which seems to have issues recently. Effort expectations frequently exceed normal work hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify more into civilian and non-government opportunities.
