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

    Pros

    Challenging work, bright people, competitive salary, generous benefits with opportunties across many organizations throughout the US.

    Cons

    Managment is resistant to change, does not always respect opinions of employees and may stifle the career otherwise ambitious and talented employees to look elsewhere. Large programs may ramp down quickly leaving little choice but to downsize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to respect opinions of new employees and allow them to choose thier career path. Provide sufficient resources for people to perform at thier best.

    I have been working at Raytheon as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Near full benefits for interns (including 401k).
    As a summer hire, 46 hours of PTO are given in advance.
    Pay is extremely competitive.
    Options to work on projects right away.
    Chances to obtain security clearances.
    9/80 work schedule (every other Friday off) is brilliant.
    The company is currently on the upswing after having some layoffs a few years ago, so its good to get your foot in the door now.
    Overall positive atmosphere, with a good mixed bag of people from different disciplines/cultures

    Cons

    Lot of red tape, and managers are often out of touch with employees.
    Average age for an employee is supposedly 47, so be prepared to be at least 10 years younger than everyone you work with.
    A lot is expected of you, even as an intern. Be prepared to spend a lot of free time teaching yourself things; no one is going to help you with the basics here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some more time with new hires! When I first started I was pretty much dumped in a cubicle and was told "go". Fortunately I'm a pretty independent person, but I know plenty of people who would have floundered in this position.
