I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than an 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 full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, hard working and great people and good pay. The challenges are many but worth the tremendous effort the employees put forth.

    Cons

    The company is sometimes overloaded by government demanded programs (such as six sigma, total quality management TQM) that have nothing to do with real engineering and science. Understandably the management should be involved with this, but the government forces everyone to be involved with it and it takes valuable time away from solving engineering problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since I was not in management, I have no advice to give. Management at Raytheon was fine.
