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

Pros

Great people that I worked with at the Aurora campus. Opportunities to try different roles. Great benefits and they definitely find you other positions as contracts end.

Cons

Salary isn't the best like most defense contractors. Not a lot of leading edge technology used in software development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better raises would help retain people.

    I worked at Raytheon as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job. That's all.

    Cons

    Disconnected, dishonest management. Too big to be aware of employee needs/concerns. Takes advantage of contract employees (no overtime paid for 17hr days, 70-80hr weeks). Laid off twice (large groups of people, not just one) in 4 years...once via conference call!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your contract employees like people. Provide worthwhile benefits. Quit lining your pockets with contract $$ and share some of it with the people earning it for you. Compensate your contractors fairly for the work they do.
