Pros

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

Cons

Can 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 ManagementAdvice

Look to diversify from Defense to keep cycles down.

    Pros

    For a government contractor, Benefits are good and Raytheon is competitive. Management is supportive of employees careers and encourages further education and training.

    Cons

    Upper management encourages innovative ideas and thinking from young engineers, but, Raytheon performs government contracting where the limits of innovation can be constrained by the contract that an engineer is assigned.

    Pros

    A large company with many domains and positions. Opportunities to move across the country and to foreign countries in support of projects.

    Cons

    Lots of follow-up work to existing contracts can make less opportunities for creating and implementing new designs and using the latest technologies.
