    I have been working at Raytheon

    Pros

    RMS is willing to take a chance on fresh talent. I started with less than a year of industry experience, and received more than fair compensation. There is tons of opportunity for growth and to hone in on exactly what you want from your career. They don’t expect you to know everything; as long as you show you are giving 100% in the tasks given to you, you will be given respect and higher mobility when more opportunities...

    Cons

    Unfortunately, because its a defense contractor, a great deal of your job will involve government contracts and info you won’t have access to right away. This often leads to disconnects or poor communication between workers and team leads, or across disciplines.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on recruiting and building new talent, and allowing for freedom in moving across disciplines to hone in on where their talents best align with a productive work environment.
