A lot of great people, but better for individuals early in their careers.
Software Engineer II (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXApril 19, 2017
Raytheon has a lot of great people, but there seems to be a talent gap. They have a lot of people that have been there forever, and a lot of people who just graduated from undergrad. The people that are coming out of undergrad do alright because they are promoted quickly to about Sr. Eng. I, but then their careers seem to stagnate or they move on: hence the gap.

What is worse is that a lot of great, experienced talent is brought in, but then not allowed to go anywhere. I have met several people that have decades of experience that are brought in to work at the same level, or even bellow, the kids that just graduated from college. Needless to say, they don't stick around very long.
Pros
A lot of great people.
Cons
They do not know how to recruit or retain talent. Little growth beyond Sr. Eng. I.

Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Denver, COApril 19, 2017
The great thing I liked about this company is that you were able to learn more then just what you were contracted for. There was always a new technology to learn and more then one way to grow.

Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CAApril 16, 2017
It's a huge company so people can have a very diverse set of experiences depending on where they end up. I know people who did nothing there, and I know people who worked their butts off.

Good ... for a while.
Manager, Emerging Opportunities Engineering (Former Employee) –  Fulton, MDApril 4, 2017
Worked for a subsidiary.
Good people.
Good product.
Good environment.... at first.
Under pressure from Corporate to meet numbers / reduce costs (typical of industry these days) the good things that made it a great place of to work were taken away. A real loss.
