I have been working at Raytheon as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Like in most government related industries, the work is less intense and can be pretty slow paced. This means you don't have to work as hard at the actual "work" itself, compared to financial and healthcare related industries,

Cons

Absolutly, without a doubt, the most terrible IT Management I have seen in 15 years of consulting... I have never seen such an nonfunctional department as the BAS group. The managers are never there... no one is ever reachable and there is no consequences for not returning emails, or not completing your work. Those that are considering Functional Consulting Roles here, stay away! Its a Revolving Door for Business Analysts and IT Project Managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There seems to be some sort of Policy to not fire bad mangers... they just get rotated somewhere else. The problem is their attitudes... the middle managers dont work and hide in their offices, adn seem to just get away with it. That isnt going to change, regardless of the area you put them under.

    Pros

    Raytheon has a very entrepreneurial spirit so there is not much micromanaging going on. The company has excellent tools in order to get the job done and dynamic team members who are extremely helpful. Some opportunities existed for remote work/flexible schedule, which was a huge plus.

    Cons

    Most new hires were a bit overwhelmed with the amount of applications/systems/processes to learn their first few weeks. Being such a large, established company, a bit of bureaucracy exists as well.
