I have been working at Raytheon as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Like in most government related industries, the work is less intense and can be pretty slow paced. This means you don't have to work as hard at the actual "work" itself, compared to financial and healthcare related industries,

Cons

Absolutly, without a doubt, the most terrible IT Management I have seen in 15 years of consulting... I have never seen such an nonfunctional department as the BAS group. The managers are never there... no one is ever reachable and there is no consequences for not returning emails, or not completing your work. Those that are considering Functional Consulting Roles here, stay away! Its a Revolving Door for Business Analysts and IT Project Managers.

Advice to Management

There seems to be some sort of Policy to not fire bad mangers... they just get rotated somewhere else. The problem is their attitudes... the middle managers dont work and hide in their offices, adn seem to just get away with it. That isnt going to change, regardless of the area you put them under.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are very talented and nice people working there. However, there are pretty bad people there, too. Salary and benefit are pretty good, pension plan (for employees that have been there for a while) is very good.

    Cons

    They promote young good talkers too fast. Some of these young engineers don't have good solid skills, just know the buzz words and know how to take credit for other people's work. Some of the managers are no-technical, so they don't know how to judge.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have good technical people to lead and to manage. That way they don't just think good talkers are the future of the company.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and depending on your skills there is the possibility for many opportunities

    Cons

    Because it is a defense contractor many of the positions are dependent on contracts. Also they are now trying to outsource many jobs to reduce costs. I have also noticed that they are not very many opportunities for those new into their career,most of their positions require 10+ years experience. So if you do get into the company before then you are kind of stuck.
