    I have been working at Raytheon BBN Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects in a wide-breadth of topics. Great work-life balance. There is a great opportunity to publish and continue doing research if you can get on the right projects. This company treats its employees really well.

    Cons

    Raytheon asserts their overlord-ness from time to time. The projects available are dictated by what the upper-level scientists can bring in. Also the company is too focused on work for DARPA.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing good work to keep Raytheon away!
