Challenging work, however Defense Industry can be slow and tedious

Project Engineer (Former Employee)
Indianapolis, IN (US)

I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 5 years

ProsInteresting projects to work on. Friendly and smart coworkers. Feels like a family at work. Good benefits and a great company discount system.

ConsCan be slow due to the nature of Defense Contracting. Jobs not always stable, since government policies are changing (especially with regard to national debt issue)

Advice to Senior ManagementLook to diversify from Defense to keep cycles down.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
