    Pros

    One of the few places I've worked that gives you good career opportunities, nice benefits, flexible work hours without expecting you to work a 60 hour week. They give you time to get your work done and have a life outside of work. The time frames for assignments are longer which gives you time to do things right and to spend time on personal and professional development. Benefits that I haven't seen since the early 90s.

    Cons

    Raytheon is a large government contractor and as such has everything that goes along with that like a lot of management, and tedious processes. You can feel like a cog because you are so isolated from upper management and their decisions. They tell you what is going on and ask for your input but don't expect to change any minds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to streamline the long processes while still keeping the work load acceptable.

    Pros

    The work-life balance, as well as the casual atmosphere. The company offers "9-80" work schedules, where you work 9 hours a day for 9 days & take every other friday off. Add to that three weeks vacation, plus the campus shuts down over the Christmas holiday & and you're already off more than employees at most companies. Dress is pretty casual, and most folks work on some pretty interesting technologies. Raytheon's been this way for some time, as there are tons of employees with 15, 20, or 25 year pins.

    Cons

    Salaries are a bit lower than what you might find elsewhere, but there is a lot of stability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branch out into the commercial sector! Learn commercial practices from companies that are more nimble than the government.
