    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Raytheon's thousands of programs provide diversity. No one program loss or cancellation will have a significant impact on the whole company. Raytheon has excellent processes and controls around Earned Value and program finance.

    Cons

    Earned value and the program finance skills you will learn at Raytheon or any of the other Defense companies do not transition easily to the commercial world.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Superb compensation and benefit package without comparison, and employee base is extremely loyal. Lots of opportunities to gain new career growth. Work-life balance is unquestionably extremely good most of the time.

    Cons

    Career growth is not done via a meritocracy, and great qualified individuals regularly get passed over by favorites. If you are a white male over 40, you likely will never get promoted again. Lots of employees who draw a paycheck yet produce nothing. Way too many managers, and these managers look for things to management.

    Advice to Management

    HR Policies need a huge overhaul, particularly in regards to performance reviews, hiring and promotion.
