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!

Solid workplace, good environment, same challenges has any other large Aerospace and Defense company. Management is focused on the right things and overall, a good place to work. In my opinion, Raytheon has a positive growth outlook.

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

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.

Never any money for training, Up to the individual to improve background

Multi-Disciplined Engineer (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CAJune 15, 2016
Raytheon has been a good place to work. During times of growth with work to keep the staff feeling secure it can be an enjoyable place to work. When there are reductions in head count and closing of facilities the workplace can be depressing.
There is a flex work schedule for many employees that allows the employees a daily schedule that can be better tailored to their lives. Most employees follow a 9/80 work schedule with alternating Fridays off. Benefits including health care, dental, vision, 401K, and IRA are industry standard and are adjusted every year to be in line with competing employers.
Pros
Large employer with opportunities for career advancement
Cons
Defense contractor producing weapons of war
