I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Tremendous amounts of resources for all employees. Excellent benefits and pay. Opportunities for career growth if you know where to look and can network successfully. Great chance to work with some of the most talented engineers in the world.

Cons

If you are outside the engineering community, you may encounter challenging times to build up your teams, establish budgets or even maintain a growing career path. Unfortunately, this instability can include employment security as well for both yourself and your team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't over promise and under deliver. Try not to be the expert in everything. Trust your team.

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

    Pros

    Given the opportunity to learn a variety of new things, work very well with interns, don't pinch pennies in terms of infrastructure and software

    Cons

    Can be a little bit political, which isn't surprising given the size of the company and nature of the work. Nothing that all large companies don't have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find talent quickly; mid-level management could tell you right away who the most competent people are. Some of the most talented engineers are stuck climbing the ladder with everyone else, while they could be making a difference immediately. Also, the structure for finding people to lead new projects needs work -- resumes aren't a good indicator. Instead, again -- ask mid-level management who interact with engineers on a daily basis.
