Great question! When it comes down to it, the benefit of graduate school really depends on the organization you work for and your own personal career goals. There are some organizations that will preference employees that went to graduate school, and there are some organizations that don't. It also depends on what your major was; there are certain roles that you can't aspire too without that degree. Another piece to think about is if a company offers any type of tuition reimbursement plan. Like Textron, many companies offer tuition reimbursement plans to help their employees further their education, while working. Going to school full time will most likely hinder your job chances, but it definitely depends on the organization and type of role.
