Electronic Technition (Former Employee) –  Port Orange,FlMarch 29, 2016
enjoyed the work and challenges for different jobs, got along with coworkers and engineers. I learned how to read different kinds of charts, how to empliment them. I got along with most of management, didn't know a lot of them. The hardest part of my job was the time schedule per job I really enjoyed the challenges of new assemblie, first time builds..
Pros
the people
Cons
didn't get much appreciation

Great place to work..as long as the company has military contracts.
Working with Raydon was great, the employees the work was a great experience. The hardest part about the job was working contract to contract based on the decisions of congress balancing a budget. the best part about the job was working with cutting edge technology and soldiers.
Pros

Cons
working contract to contract

It was a good place to start thats it
assmbler II (Former Employee) –  Port Orange, FLJanuary 4, 2016
Raydon is a good place to start, but that's it. There aren't any advancement opportunities in the manufacturing department and the manager is absolutely a nightmare. Unless you are going to be to working on the business, finance, IT. engineering or software side of this company I would steer clear as far as anything in the manufacturing department

Company That Is Very Immature and Plays Favorites vs. Skill of Employee
Product Development Test Technician III. (Former Employee) –  Port Orange, FLJuly 9, 2012
An inbred company with a lot of growing up to do. Managers support their "inner circle" even though the quality of work performed by the inner circle was often inferior to those not in the circle. Management repeatably under estimated time to development and promised the customer systems would be fully functional but were not. Very much of a "We'll fix it later." attitude. The lack of planning would make employees work nights and weekends to make the schedule set up.
Communications within a department and between departments was spotty at best and numerous times the system being tested was altered without informing the Test Lead causing countless hours of additional debug and workarounds. Hardware was often removed without informing the Test Leads also.
Pros
benefits
Cons
inbred, poor management, poor communication between departments

Product Development Test Technician III. Duties (Former Employee) –  Port Orange, FLMay 21, 2012
A company that has a lot of professional growing up to do.
On numerous occasion equipment required for testing would be "borrowed" without informing of such activity and computer files would be edited without informing the test lead.
Testing was haphazard and people helped themselves to systems under test without informing the test lead. The result is test plans and activities had to be constantly adjusted. Most of the time the result was final test would require working nights and or weekends to make up the lost time due to the confusion created by lack of communication.
The manager of the testing department was very biased with those under him. He definitely had favorites and you knew it.
Pros
benefits
Cons
scheduling of testing, time allocated for testing, lack of documentation and follow-up
