Production Associate (Current Employee), El Paso – December 15, 2014
Pros: great experience
Cons: not so willing to pay more
Raytheon is a great place to work if you love doing hands on things. Raytheon is a company that works on patriot equipment. Raytheon is also a great place to start a career and gain a lot of experience. The only hard part at work would be meeting dead lines on getting equipment done, and the best part is being at work I enjoy what I do at Raytheon.

Production control Planner (Former Employee), Sudbury, MA – December 4, 2014
Since I left Raytheon in 2002 I do not have any valid comments to make. Raytheon has a union so I had to adapt to not handling material directly. That is a fine line sometimes.
I had the opportunity to explore a few different facets of Production Control while there, from pushing purchased material through the inspection process to stores to participating – more... in Material Configuration Control Board (MCCB) meetings to working closely with Test Equipment engineers designing and building prototypes. – less
Software Test Engineer (Current Employee), Aurora, CO – December 1, 2014
Typical work day isn't bad, flex hours are great. Some of the management is too involved with employees on a personal level, other parts of management treat you as a replaceable number. Co-workers are great and is what keeps your sanity, at this company.
Principal Training & Development Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Devens, MA – November 24, 2014
It is a very large defense company. Employees are a number in the system. It has the typical benefits of a large organization as well as the typical negatives. As an offsite employee on a military contract, there was little interaction with corporate office. It was more who you know than how well you can do your job. Management did not manage and were – more... hired not due to their qualifications. – less
Technical Support Engineer II (Former Employee), Tucson, Arizona – November 9, 2014
Pros: challenges and teamwork.
Cons: none that i can remember.
Raytheon was on the cutting edge of defense technology and I felt privileged to be part of the team. I leaned more while there than I can recount. The projects were challenging and being part of the design team was rewarding and the team consisted of some of the most talented people I know.
