I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Interesting projects to work on. Friendly and smart coworkers. Feels like a family at work. Good benefits and a great company discount system.

Cons

Can be slow due to the nature of Defense Contracting. Jobs not always stable, since government policies are changing (especially with regard to national debt issue)

Advice to Management

Look to diversify from Defense to keep cycles down.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 5 years)

    I learned more in this job than in other jobs I've had.

    Unstable management. Laid off a lot of good people, including me.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change your structure so much. Don't move people from project to project so much.

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits at a reasonable price. Flexible working environment, new facility in Ashburn, Va is nice.

    Cons

    There are so many layers of management that it was hard to get deicisons made and created lengthy approval processes. Didn't get good guidance from my manager because she was a "working" manager and too busy sometimes with her problem solving.

    Advice to Management

    Empower line managers to make and execute decisions
