Working with management to problem solve on site with little reaction time.
Field Engineer III (Current Employee) –  Camp Lejeune, NCSeptember 22, 2016
Typical day allowed for using a large skill set and application of independent thought and action. Learned about maintenance management, shipping, supply, logistics, and management. There were many times that decisions about operations needed to be made at the ground level and management allowed for decisions made by the individual RFE to affect the program and shape the best product support possible.
Pros
Great teamwork, and amazing management.
Cons
Very little direction and structure for every day operations.

Great people to work with and made for a great company to work for
Production Control Manager (Current Employee) –  Andover, MASeptember 21, 2016
Start my day with emails and phone calls contacting with my co-workers to see what needed to be done during the day. I would then walk the floor to see how the operators are doing and if there is anything I can do for them. I have meeting throughout the day, which made me better at micro managing my time. I would make my rounds with the other boss's and see how we can better the company throughout the day.
Pros
Co-works are extremely helpful
Cons
I work second shift

DOD Company
Technician Support Specialist N85 (Former Employee) –  Greenville, TX 75403September 15, 2016
Learning is encouraged at Raytheon especially in the electrical testing field, management practices and administration, new and innovative electronics, computer sciences, and highly specialized NAVAL equipment.

Hardest part of the job is the schedule of the Government, and potentially the hours required to work.

Most enjoyable part of the job is the care and support that management and upper management play int he advancement of their employees.
Pros
Employment Advancement, Company Benefits
Cons
Work Schedule

No chance for advancement
Material Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 31, 2016
Worked there for 12 years and job advancement was based on who you knew and not merit. Management turnover was an issue, and was more to advance to the next step than being a good manager for your people.

Management Needed Restructure
Enterprise Maintenance Center Operator (Former Employee) –  Aurora, COAugust 28, 2016
Management micro managed its employees and would make the workplace hostile. Job security was great because the turn over rate was so high they could not let anyone go. Pay was very low for what the positions were.

Contract facility, if there is money in the contract, there is work.
Production Specialist Lead (Former Employee) –  El Paso, TXAugust 25, 2016
The contracts are exciting. The equipment and items you are working on are high valued items. For the most part part people are friendly within the environment. Do not focus or worry about the people who sleep on the job or don't have any work ethic. Those people know somebody and won't ever get in trouble. Leave them alone, and don't try to get them to work. It won't happen. On the upside, having Raytheon and the duties you've performed look great on a resume.
Pros
Exciting job
Cons
Lots of back stabbing, and people around you who don't do anything at all and get away with it.
