Technically challenging and fun company to work for
Senior Advanced Media Specialist (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – February 13, 2014
A typical day for me at Raytheon was very enjoyable and challenging. We were required to wear many hats and learn new skills. I developed surveys, created and managed databases, and managed a digital asset management system. The most enjoyable part of my job was planning and executing live webcasts. Cameras, audio equipment, lighting, and encoding equipment surrounded my cubicle. It was heaven to me. Because budgets were tight I had to integrate and figure out how to use surplus equipment the Video Department was throwing away. I learned how to make things work on a shoestring budget. Management focused on the big global market most of the time, so it was challenging at times for management to understand the daily challenges the team faced. Something common in global companies. Overall a very positive experience with management. My co-workers were very supportive and always took the time to teach me new skills, and allow me to teach them as well. The hardest part of the job was meeting customers requirements with old equipment. Also, not being able to experiment and develop new innovative ways to live stream company events. The most enjoyable part of the job was the many, many people I knew and worked with over the 13 years I was at the company. Many were legacy employees who had worked for the company 30+ years. That says a lot about a company when you've been with them for 3 decades or more.

Good company to work for. Many opportunities with young people with college degrees. Graduate program is an excellent way to gain enough knowledge to apply for other opportunities at other companies for greater pay.
Productive enviroment, with the opportunity to train soldiers
Technical Support Engineer II (Current Employee) – Lawton, OK – May 25, 2016
Most days at Raytheon included coming in to the office and preparing lessons for the instructors to use while on conduct. this included preparing instructor and student materials. I learned to format word documents according to specific rules and to formulate articulate wording in those lessons. The hardest part about creating these lessons when your lesson is sent back for having a comma out of pace, but the best part is traveling to the various posts to train new soldiers on the same equipment I used for 18 years.

Horrible Management, Unstable guarantee of employment
Employee (Former Employee) – Chaparral, NM – May 18, 2016
In the 2 years I was there I witnessed 2 lay offs. Also management was horrible. Too much favoritism. The position was easy to learn. Unfortunately this is an environment that regardless of you doing your job and more, if you aren't one of the boss' buddies, progress is not an option. Easy work environment and the ability to work independently as well as a team.
