    Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern in Garland, TX

    I worked at Raytheon as an intern for 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.
