more like a day care center than a missile manufacturer
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) – Tucson – January 7, 2013
For all those people out there that say Raytheon provides a good work life balance, they are right! People can come and go as they please, call in anytime, work on personal issues on the clock etc etc. But for every instance of this someone is picking up the slack and getting crapped on for it, it would seem. Raytheon is trained to manage the unethical, immoral scum of the earth. Raytheon does not know how to treat hard working people. They just do not train that way. So unethical actions quickly get swepped under the rug and any person who reports these actions is reviewed as "not a team player". Management is terribly gutless, especialy when it comes to a dispute between a proffesional engineer and an incompetent union worker. General atmosphere is highly unproffesional. Large focus on minorities and women with such a large company as you would expect. But when a hispanic says "all you white boys look the same" and upper managment as well as human resources does nothing.... come on! But what can you do? With all the AA laws and equal opportunity BS, then factor in the union, what would you ask them to do? I just want to warn if you are hard working, morral, and ethical you will get walked on by this company until you are shaped into the same POS as the rest of the workers at Raytheon. Then, once you are made into something expendable, out the door the first chance they have.
no expectations of you, you could do nothing and get payed (if you're into that sort of thing)
extremely weak managment, too too political
