I have been working at Raytheon

Pros

Defense based culture - lots of patriotism, rules and process
Attention to people - good work/life balance, diversity, benefits and compensation
Aggressive when going after big contracts (big is spelled with a $B at RTN)
Some truly outstanding talent

Cons

Defense based culture - lots of patriotism, rules and process
Poor attention to tools and techniques - IT is particularly bad.
Risk-adverse management skips or bungles the small but strategically important R&D programs. Always playing catch-up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward the innovative by going after the risky R&D contracts; reward the star performers with fast-track promotions.

    Pros

    Pretty good job security
    Opportunities for swift advancement if you really push yourself
    Benefits of both salaried and hourly pay styles: guaranteed salary, but you can get "modtime" (aka comp time) or even overtime pay when you work over 40 hours in a week

    Cons

    Work/Life balance could be encouraged more
    Very talented individual achievers can be overlooked if they don't promote themselves well enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work/Life balance could be encouraged more
