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

    Pros

    I worked at Raytheon for over 4 years and had a great experience. The company provided many learning and growth opportunities. I was promoted twice during my tenure with the company, and my responsibility increased significantly. I felt like my management supported me and provided me with the career mentorship that I was seeking. I felt empowered and respected during my time there.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to work at such a large defense contractor company because of all the process and red tape. Things can move slowly, you have to be patient and pick your battles. That being said, if you learn how to work within the system, you can make a significant impact here!

    Advice to Management

    Not all section managers (middle managers) are clued in with the senior leadership's goals. I met with many senior leaders and executives who supported diversity and employee resource groups. However, often times middle management was against employees putting their own volunteer time towards these efforts and looked down on it. This gap was a huge problem and really needs to be fixed!!

    Pros

    Mission focused on requirements as well as delivering the best possible solutions for the customer. Group of professionals dedicated implementing best practices.

    Contract limitations for contract employees result in limited terms of employment based on the particular contract. Although unavoidable in most cases, it is an inevitable part of contracting.
