Keep fighting off larger Raytheon policies that don't make sense for BBN.

Keep an eye on salaries at top tech firms, if disparities continue to grow at current rate BBN may lose top talent.

    Pros

    BBN is company that values engineers first and foremost. Managers are almost always very successful engineers who have moved on to an oversight role but remain engineers at heart.

    Cons

    Former CEO/President Robert "Tad" Elmer left suddenly, without any explanation but apparently after a run in with the new Raytheon overlords. Raytheon's influence is creeping in slowly and is a total culture clash. The scientific method and the "don't think, follow the process" cultures don't mix.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't let Raytheon ruin BBN. BBNers by and large love their jobs. Every Raytheon engineer I know is miserable.
