I have been working at Raytheon full-time (more than an year)

Pros

They hire engineers, pay for graduate school, and some of the projects are interesting. Work life balance is good.

Cons

Compensation: It varies wildly based on your "business." Employees in one business get more time off, profit sharing, and bonuses while others get nothing.

Promotions: If you are a new hire get ready to wait two years before your first promotion because regardless of how good you are at your job you wont get promoted before that. Get ready to see the guy sleeping in his cubicle, literally, get promoted at the same rate as you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensate and promote based on merit, not time served. Get rid of the dead weight.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, generally good work environment with friendly/knowledgeable coworkers, decent pay.

    Cons

    A true monolith defense contractor, with all the problems that reputation implies. A million levels of middle management who simply muddy up the process of actually getting anything done. Too much red tape, politics, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the levels of middle management and simplify the structure of the organization.
