CX/UX research (Former Employee) –  Billerica, MAJune 23, 2017
Great company, fascinating high-tech-dominated workforce. Good management.

Highly recommend RTN to anyone who qualifies to work there. The company has offices all over the USA so don't be deterred by their New England headquarters site.

Great People and Customers
Sr. Software Engineer I / Lab Integrator (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 21, 2017
Working for Raytheon was really great. The people were amazing, like family. The most enjoyable part of the job was delivering an amazing product to the customer. The hardest part of the job was when/if difference of opinions came up in team meetings and having people stay on task. Management was always there for me.
Pros
Exercise area and play area with pool table and ping pong table
Cons
In house advancement was extremely hard to obtain.

Sr Training and Development Specialist (Current Employee) –  Hohenfels, DEJune 21, 2017
After relocating, it is the perfect job to get settled in and not have to balance work and home life. Working part-time fit our schedule perfectly. Being on-call allowed for flexibility without fear of losing a job.
Pros
good pay, flexible schedule
Cons
away from home for long periods of time

Lip service for career development
Senior Systems Technician (Former Employee) –  Silver Spring, MDJune 20, 2017
Large company that treats you as a number. Recognition for good service is minimal. Anger someone and you are out the door. Minimal raises. Management is better at the lowest level but distant and lacking at higher levels.
Pros
They found a place for me to be employed
Cons
Raises and advancement is minimal at best

Mid-Atlantic Engineering Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Falls Church, VAJune 18, 2017
Great benefits and environment with advancement opportunity. Hardest part was working for several managers of completely different departments. Conflicts happened all the time so if not able to resolve then had to get main manager to make decision based on importance of requests from other departments for workload that needed to be done. Left company due to a moving to another state.
Pros
Excellent benefits compared to many companies
Cons
Can be stressful environement with 1800 staff in building.

Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Aurora, COJune 17, 2017
-Have had both and good managers at Raytheon, the bad have been placed elsewhere and I have been happy with my current leadership.

-They value their employees and give good benefits.

-It is a very large company and you run into the pros and cons of that. They can afford to pay you what you are worth and give you good benefits. However, change happens slowly.
Pros
Pay well

Raytheon Aircraft Services
Flightline Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 15, 2017
The typical day at work was to quickly understand the changes to the daily flight schedule and adapt to the highest need of the operation or the customer immediately. I learned how to manage a very complex operation with various components of aviation, such as balancing airline operations with cargo operations, or the constant need for general aviation's attention for time and resources. It was fun but very taxing on physical and mental resources. Management was excellent to work with and always willing to help with guidance and advise to operational concerns. The hardest part of the job was working all the hours to keep this size of operation running efficiently at all times. However, the most enjoyable part was meeting all the great customers and employees we would had at our facility.
Pros
The fast pace complex environment
Cons
The many hours and weekends it took from family.

Good benefits, experience, & training but weak job security
Sr. Export License & Compliance Advisor (Former Employee) –  McKinney, TXJune 14, 2017
A good place to gain experience and build resume but company is not necessarily loyal to long time employees which weakens job security. Like all big companies, cultural & work environment depends work group management -- some are very positive & some are not. Good benefits: salary, bonus, 401K, employee stock plan, retirement plan, flex work week, generous vacations, and strong training programs. Overall, it can be a good company to work for, but long term job security can be an issue.
Pros
Good benefits, training, and experience opportunities
Cons
Weak on long-term job security

Good work life balance, smart engineers, but inefficiency and complacency like all DoD contractors exists.
Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZJune 13, 2017
Typical defense contractor. Get the 9x80 schedule which is nice for a good work/life balance. Nothing particularly attractive to retain talent. Big time locations are not in particularly "happening" cities (Tucson, Huntsville, Andover...). Very conservative coworkers, but the company is executively progressive. Eye opening in terms of how much money is funneled into DoD and just how "efficiently" it is used. Everyone is required to become a "Raytheon 6sigma Specialist," but the company still is not very good with efficient work because they are hung up on processes. A great number of employees are baby boomers waiting to cash out pensions and retirement. There is a sense of complacency at times. You won't feel like a true "salaried" employee as you're always charging hours to charge numbers accurate to 15 minutes.
Pros
9x80 schedule
Cons
Lost in DoD ways

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Bedford, MAJune 12, 2017
I worked for the PATRIOT missile department which provided missile and missile parts to the US Military. It was more like a military environment. I first worked in the purchase order department then moved into the procurement department.

No future in advancement.
Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZJune 12, 2017
If you work in a hourly position, you cannot advance with this company. That advancement works only on seniority. Advancement only comes with salary paid positions. Raytheon has great benefits but the health care took a HUGE hit when Obamacare kicked in.
