I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Very little. There was some interesting software development work, but nothing earth-shattering.

Cons

Little to no support for career growth. Cruel management -- I vividly remember a gentlemen who had been out on sick leave because of a heart attack being layed off several weeks later.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show your employees you care about their career growth and treat them with a modicum of humanity.

    Pros

    Genuine and authentic people are easy to find at all levels of the company, leading to easy collaboration on exciting projects related to leading-edge technologies that protect national security and beyond.

    Cons

    Extensive cases exist where leadership does not understand what team members are doing the real work with deep expertise. Too many incompetent managers being promoted across company who do not provide coaching, visibility, and/or recognition for best employees who are leaving company for better opportunities and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to identify your team members doing the real work and reach out directly for their expertise before they leave due to incompetent management.
