Solid place to work and a good place to earn a living.
Senior Manager, Material Program Management (Current Employee) – El Segundo, CA – May 23, 2017
Good place to work, with solid benefits and decent pay. Company culture needs to improve with regard to building leaders. Not a lot of experienced leaders with regard to building and developing people.

Moved from California to Kentucky following them after they asked me to. After working for them for 16 yrars my warehouse manager takes me up to the logistics managers office were HR is on the phone and they are telling me I no longer have a job because I am on an overhead budget. Escorted me out the door to my vehicle telling me sorry WOW.
Spray Painter & Sheet Metal (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – May 20, 2017
It was a really good company to work for until the layoff which got really ugly for everyone there hourly and salary all together. Other than that my fellow co-workers were very easy to get along but don't get me wrong there is never a perfect work place and we are human after all.
Raytheon is a team work and balanced work place, the work is very easy but needs to be on time. I enjoyed working with my co workers and learning new things daily. Relaxing and comfortable environment.
Great people to work with but no advancement for young employees
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Tewksbury, MA – May 12, 2017
The company is very diverse and tries to promote diversity. The people I work with are very nice (although not extremely talented). There is, however, no career advancements for the younger employees. I work very hard there and only see a 4% raise very year with a bit of stock options. It seems like (at least in my program) that things are going downhill... Less benefits every year. For example, there are really no free lunches and they stopped paying for training. I guess this is not really their fault because of how government contracts work. The work is frankly just not that challenging, mainly because there is a huge dependency on Systems Engineers. It seems like Software Engineers there are "replaceable".
I would advice young guys to stay away but the older folks to apply. This is a very stable company and they don't really fire anyone. They want to keep knowledge and hire internally. If there is no advancement, the young guys are of course gonna jump ship. It's not that hard to figure that out. I don't think they recognize hard work at all. That's not the only thing frustrating but the work is just not challenging enough. No one is really pushing to get work done and that might be because this is a defense contractor. This is great for older guys but terrible for younger guys who want to go somewhere in life. A lot of times, I'm literally begging for work. So, their not pushing to get work done nor do they care how much work you do (at least for the software guys). Like I said, if you have the experience already, this is the perfect job for you. If I had known thismore... out of college, I probably would not have worked here.less
Diverse, no pressure, people are respectful, easy work (software)
Work not difficult, no advancement for software guys (especially young guys)
Electronics Technician (Current Employee) – VA – May 11, 2017
While this is considered "contract labor", the work has been pretty steady for years. Office politics are bothersome, but overall it is a nice group of people. It's very difficult to genuinely learn assigned equipment since it is critical and no system downtime is allotted for training. That said, there are people working the site who have been there for years who are still learning. If that doesn't bother you, you'll be content.
Politics, lack of efficient training program which translates to slow advancement
Supplier Quality Assurance Engineer (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 9, 2017
Leadership in the Quality Organization lacks clear vision of where they're going and what they want to accomplish; getting more hung up on making up metrics than innovating Quality processes and better Quality Management and engineering overall.
People working in the organization are supportive and generally back each other up and genuinely care about one another.
Mechanical Assembler (Former Employee) – Andover, MA – May 8, 2017
It was a nice place to work. I had learned a lot in my 9 years of employment. Management was great. Place was clean, Great co workers. Many great workers. Many jobs to get out on demand and quick turn overs, I was laid off
Manager (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – May 8, 2017
Very disorganized and complete disregard for their employees. You never know what is going on and communication is terrible. They basically count on you not being willing to find another job and stick it too you. There are MUCH better places to work in Louisville that here.
