Good start to a systems engineering career
System Engineer (Current Employee) –  Andover, MAAugust 22, 2016
Raytheon is a great company to work for and it showed me the world of Systems Engineering which I enjoy very much. A typical work day is 9 hours with flex time. I have learned a lot about the integration of system of systems and data analysis. My co workers are great and working as a team is easy.

Great place to work!
Senior Production Specialist (Former Employee) –  McKinney, TXJuly 30, 2016
All I can say in the five years I worked there I learned a lot about the defense industry. Worked with a great group guys who always put their best foot forward and always showed support in a team goaled enviroment. The management for the most part was supportive but a bit demanding at times with unrealistic deadlines. Raytheon allows the employee to be able to showcase their skills and feel good about themselves. There's little micro management thus allowing the employees to work freely with little supervision. Work-life balance is good but could use some tweaking. Raytheon hires mostly retired vets who are very talented and know what the customer expects as they were once the customer at one time. Unfortunately, many contracts were dropped due to the change in our Government back in 2008 inadvertently causing massive layoffs. Hopefully if things change positively with our Government, Raytheon will prosper again.
Pros
Highly professional employees who really have pride in their work.
Cons
Long hours.

Can't get out of its own way, but not bad
ASIC/FPGA DESIGN SME AND DESIGN VERIFICATION SME (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALJuly 26, 2016
Lots of opportunity here to improve the machine that tends to get in its own way more times than not. Great for new grads to get their experience level up by being mentored by seasoned engineers. Great for professionals if you can deal with the inefficiencies the commercial world does not suffer. Great work/life balance as we work 9/80 work week
Pros
The world is a messy place, some people just need killing, and we are here to provide weapons to our troops so they can stay safe... lots of work to be done.
Cons
Advancement past E-6 to E-44 and up (Fellow) is virtually impossible

Good Defense Contractor
Front End Developer (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, CAJuly 11, 2016
They are a strong company with a forward focus on technology. If you've never worked for a large defense contractor, this is a good start.

Open minded staff and personnel are the best!

Challenging Job working with helicopters.
Aircraft Technician (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMJuly 7, 2016
Helicopters had major components that had to be replaced at certain amount of flying hours. It was a challenge each day as you had to climb on top of the aircraft to do any king on inspection or maintenance. The structure of the helo took a lot wear and tear due to aircraft vibrations (a major issue with helos) and the helicopter was continuously in repair for structure issues such as cracks on the frame and panels of the helicopter.
Pros
Work outside or inside the hangar depending on weather conditions.
Cons
No chance of career advancement.

Do Not Work Here
Contracts Manager (Former Employee) –  Goleta, CAJune 25, 2016
Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems is the worst place I have worked. Diversity is a joke. A strong good-ol-boy network, nepotism and gender discrimination create a distorted and closed environment. Management uses fear, intimidation and bullying to control and manipulate employees. When business is down, employees are wrongfully terminated or harassed into quitting instead of laid off. The official culture is supposed to value respect, but this could not be farther from the truth. Respect is used as a tool against employees. HR and management will fabricate and distort facts claiming an employee behaved disrespectfully which will then be used as grounds for termination. Appeals to the top level of HR are useless. Salaries are frozen among the different functions by management decisions made behind the scenes. Hiring managers lie to get people to accept offers. New hires are sabotaged by their peers. Do not work here.
Pros
Nothing overcomes the cons.
Cons
See the review.

A great place to work with great benefits.
Production Control Planning Specialist (Former Employee) –  McKinney, TXJune 25, 2016
Flex time to allow work life balance made it easier to maintain perfect attendance. Attention to respecting others while getting the job done was a strong emphasis in the working environment. I learned the importance of integrity and the impact it has on self and others.
Pros
Flex Time and benefits
Cons
Hard to transition from non-exempt into exempt position, but not impossible.
