No opinion of CEO

I worked at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good people, great benefits. I hugely enjoyed working with the colleagues I found there. The work was immensely satisfying. The layoff benefits were quite good.

Cons

No emphasis on training, poor career tracking, in an industry (defense) that is currently cratering. Like all big companies, they could be dense and bureaucratic.

Advice to Management

Diversify beyond the defense industry.

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

    Pros

    Great people that I worked with at the Aurora campus. Opportunities to try different roles. Great benefits and they definitely find you other positions as contracts end.

    Cons

    Salary isn't the best like most defense contractors. Not a lot of leading edge technology used in software development.

    Advice to Management

    Better raises would help retain people.
