Mission Analyst/Satellite Operator (Former Employee), Washington, DC – November 11, 2013
Pros: ability to bank overtime and use as paid time off.
Cons: difficuty of getting promoted or finding other employment in the company.
While working at Raytheon I learned a bit about working with networks. Part of my duties included monitoring Applications and Processes as well as maintaining connections with proper IP addresses with external users. The hardest part of my job was no matter how hard I worked or the drive I showed I was not able to get a promotion. When I moved into – more... a spot that should have gained me said promotion that position was no longer one of a higher pay grade, but became duties of my current pay grade. The best part about the job was being able to work with a diverse group of people, both in operations and in the engineering group. I learned many things in general from everyone I have worked with. – less

Senior Principle Electrical Engineer (Former Employee), El Segundo, CA – October 16, 2013
Overall I enjoyed all my time at Raytheon. I worked many many programs and in general the management and benefits where very good. They always treated me/us well and with respect for our hard work. When things did go wrong we usually all pitched in and solved the problems with long hours of hard work.
fast paced, demanding but good place to learn new skills
Sr. Logistics Specialist (Former Employee), Andover, MA – October 16, 2013
Pros: not boring, great place to learn new skills
There are no typical days, each day presents new challenges. I learned how to work with the US government concerning logistics, how to work with the military concerning shipping requirements both domestic and internationally. The coworkers were respectful, friendly and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job was dealing with multiple programs – more... who all had there own agenda's each day. The most enjoyable part was the satisfaction of supplying the US soldiers with the equipment they need to protect the US and it's allies. – less
Production Support Specialist (Former Employee), McKinney, TX – October 15, 2013
A typical work day at Raytheon was mostly laid back. Times did get stressful but for the most part you were able to go and do what you needed to get done and no one watching over your back. I learned something new about in my position everyday. The hardest part of the job was trying to move up. Didn't seem to matter how hard you worked and how much – more... praise you got from your customers, management never commended you for it or compensated you for it. The enjoyable part of my job was my colleagues. I loved working with my program personel they were always very helpful and taught me a lot. We also received free lunches (monthly) when we met our metric goals and that was pretty great too. – less
