    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Very little. There was some interesting software development work, but nothing earth-shattering.

    Cons

    Little to no support for career growth. Cruel management -- I vividly remember a gentlemen who had been out on sick leave because of a heart attack being layed off several weeks later.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees you care about their career growth and treat them with a modicum of humanity.
