SAP Data Entry/File Clerk (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – May 3, 2017
I was a contractor for Raytheon, however, they did treat me well. Pay was decent, it was a quiet place to work. Being a contractor I was not privy to workplace culture. The hardest part of the job was keeping coordinated with the other full time employees I worked with on the team I was assigned to. The part I enjoyed the most was being able to show up to work, pop my headphones on and go to work. Downside to being a contractor is being asked to work a lot of overtime to make up for deadlines not being met or work getting backed up. However, being a contractor also excluded me from having to work weekends if I did not want to.
Many good and intelligent people to work with across multiple functions
Senior Project Manager /Operations Team Lead (Current Employee) – McKinney, TX – May 2, 2017
Overall, a good company to work for if you're a solid employee. Many good and hard working people who produce quality products for our war fighters.
Raytheon has many layers of management, which can make this cumbersome at times, however much of the structure is due to government rules & policies, therefore having the right people in place requires layers of oversight / management.
Lack of training and grooming employees for furthering their careers
Manager of Information Technology (Current Employee) – Tewksbury, MA – May 2, 2017
Employees share knowledge and provide assist with getting projects completed on time. Very team oriented culture. Employees are encouraged to manage their own careers through the companies online internal resources.
Working as part of a team

Raytheon provides a well rounded and growth oriented environment with a focus on training and professional development. They adhere to and fold into the culture of the company an element of excellence and customer satisfaction that is evident in all business dealings.
Production Control Clerk (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – April 27, 2017
I worked at Raytheon on contract right after my time in the military ended. I think Raytheon is one of the best jobs I've had to date. My supervisor was very understanding and allowed me to come in at times that best fit my schedule due to me being in school as well.
I enjoyed what I did and the people that surrounded me....
Team Lead (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – April 26, 2017
I was blessed to be able to have had the opportunities that were given to me when employed here. My managers were fair and did what they could to help me succeed....what else could you ask for! I advanced more in the last five years here, then in the previous 20 at the company I was employed when Raytheon took them over in ...job position, knowledge and experiance.... I would go back in a heart beat, given the oportunity!
Wealth of knowledge around you, benifits, pay, work enviornment

Refurbing and repair of aircraft structures and interiors , learned a lot about structures , managment was good, long hours were the hardest , watching the customers faces when they saw the finished product.
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – MD – April 22, 2017
A pleasant place to work with some interesting problems to solve, but in the bureaucratic machine you will start to feel like unskilled labor. They struggle to retain good employees by offering no incentives and no clear paths toward advancement. Do not be surprised when you are performing duties 2 and 3 levels beyond your title and getting zero recognition or compensation for it.
However, I think Raytheon knows exactly what they are doing and they truly do not want great engineers, they want mediocre engineers. Mediocre engineers are good enough for Raytheon's products and they are cheaper.
