Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), El Segundo, CAJuly 9, 2014
Pros: benefits, opportunities, friendships with coworkers, students and instructor.

Work days were not really "typical." Tasks and responsibilities were customer-driven.

Learned word processing (pre-personal computer); working independently; contracts and business law; team-work.

I enjoyed working with the various students, especially those who were attending on-line university classes at our facility. It was great to see how they – more... grew and matured, and advanced in their careers through their education. – less

Very fast-paced company with lots of great people to work with.
IT Project Manager to VP/CIO (Former Employee), Tewksbury, MaJuly 5, 2014
Pros: great people, great benefits
Cons: huge changes going on organizationally with no communication/flowdown. everyone is in the dark.
The most enjoyable part of working for this company is the challenge of working in such a fast and changing environment and hitting the goals - never a dull moment. The hardest part of the job is maneuvering around very process-oriented folks. You learn quickly to "manage" them and get done what needs to be done on time and on budget.

Working at Raytheon has been a learning experience. Worked in both software and system roles in a variety of projects like Navy, and the FAA.

Learnt how to use a variety of different tools such as DOORS for requirements, VBA for data analysis, – more... and so on. Expanded my knowledge on Radar functionality.

Good exposure to air traffic control, traveling to FAA sites to implement our Raytheon product and test it. – less

Raytheon is a company with a long proud history. It means a lot when you consider our work directly affects our military might and performance.
Administrative Specialist / Executive Assistant (Current Employee), Tucson, AZJune 15, 2014
Pros: the skills i've learned and the respect for the awsome jobs my engineers accomplish every day.
The day usually begins around 7:00 A.M. and ends around 5:30 P.M. I've learned a lot of technical skills but I'm no "techno geek." My management has consisted of senior engineers who are over worked (their Blackberries are always ON.) My current co-workers are fabulous; we truly make a great time. That is, after all, what it's all about, TEAM WORK. – more... Hardest part: the long days. We work 9-hours days, with every other Friday off. However, those 9 hour, more often than not, turn into 10 or 11 hours. The best part: the acknowledgement I get for a job well done, and the enduring friendships I have made in the last 15years. – less
