I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

My immediate management was generous with letting me run the dept as long as I got things done and my efforts were value added.

Cons

I was hoping to retire from Raytheon but upper management did not look at the ramifications of laying me off. Many program managers I supported were confused why I was let go. If a manager is changed there is no means to communicate to a new manager how well employees are doing and all the rapport built up over the years is lost and you are just a number.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take better care to keep your best employees. They deserve better.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flex time, 40 hr work week, supportive management.

    Cons

    Dilbert-like cubicle environment, working with old tech is useless experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay drastically and try to foster a more creative and fun environment to attract and retain software talent. Right now many employees think of Raytheon as an employer of last resort.
