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

    Pros

    Large company with many contracts.
    Managers actually work to place you on contracts.
    Requirements for promotion actually have to do with your job.

    Cons

    Moral was low while I was there.
    Management gave little career guidance.
    Management did not emphasize importance of yearly review. Which should be explained to someone fresh out of collage.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful if you didn't insult your employees when trying to retain them. I got an offer from another company. When I went to my manager with the offer he said, " They are just trying to buy you. You aren't worth this much money." He had to swallow those words when he went back to his managers with the offer and they matched. Needless to say, I still took the other offer.
