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

    Pros

    Amazing work life balance! Plenty of vacation and 9/80 schedule lets us have every other Friday off. In my experience the pay is very competitive. Every time I have looked at other companies the pay doesn’t compare to what I make.

    Cons

    Being a government contractor we get into a government mentality and it is difficult to evolve which is horrible for a company that is essentially a technology company. Health insurance is not great but in today’s environment that is very common. It is not bad when you compare it to its peers but it is still not great.
