Ok place to work, but little future for a career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Springfield, VA

ProsDue to my security clearance and shift work the pay is great, much more than a new grad could expect otherwise.

ConsShift work requires you to nearly give up any social life you have. Getting time off can be difficult. Internal job openings seem to be a formality, they already know who they are giving the job to, this makes for a frustrating experience and gives little hope for moving up in the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive jobs based on performance and desire, not on seniority only.

    Software Engineer right out of College.

    Software Engineer II (Current Employee) Marlborough, MA

    I have been working at Raytheon


    Pros: - benefits - pay is decent (including bonus) - work and life balance is great… Cons: - The location is horrible, making for a terrible commute (unless you live right in Marlborough) - Promotions are generally given… Advice to Senior Management: - better communication to employees - if you implement a CMMI process, follow it. Don't just use the "CMMI" rating as a tool… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
