Great place to work, but needs a culture change
International Logistics (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 24, 2017
I started out in a Rotational Development Program, which gave me a lot of exposure to various areas of the company in a short amount of time. I enjoyed the exposure and working on the larger-scale, higher-impact types of projects. In this 2-year program, I rotated between 3 roles and 2 Business Units. It was a great experience, overall.
In the year since I came off-program, I took a challenge and joined a newly formed organization. The goal was to help define the structure of that organization as long as the roles and responsibilities of those in it. I was really excited to have an opportunity to contribute in this way and was ready to work.
To date, the role hasn't turned out to be what I thought it would be. I've volunteered my expertise on multiple occasions, only to be shut down each time. A year later, I remain in a role that's largely undefined... In an organization still trying to find its footing.... With no end in sight.
Raytheon isn't a company that embraces change, let alone a place that does it quickly. With my experience, I should've known this going into this role. But now I do, and I need to move on. Internally or externally. Lesson learned: "Do your homework."
Passionate, driven, extremely knowledgeable workforce; great work/life balance
failure to embrace change, 401k could be better, not a fast-paced, modern work envionment
