No chance for advancement
Material Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 31, 2016
Worked there for 12 years and job advancement was based on who you knew and not merit. Management turnover was an issue, and was more to advance to the next step than being a good manager for your people.

Management Needed Restructure
Enterprise Maintenance Center Operator (Former Employee) –  Aurora, COAugust 28, 2016
Management micro managed its employees and would make the workplace hostile. Job security was great because the turn over rate was so high they could not let anyone go. Pay was very low for what the positions were.

Contract facility, if there is money in the contract, there is work.
Production Specialist Lead (Former Employee) –  El Paso, TXAugust 25, 2016
The contracts are exciting. The equipment and items you are working on are high valued items. For the most part part people are friendly within the environment. Do not focus or worry about the people who sleep on the job or don't have any work ethic. Those people know somebody and won't ever get in trouble. Leave them alone, and don't try to get them to work. It won't happen. On the upside, having Raytheon and the duties you've performed look great on a resume.
Pros
Exciting job
Cons
Lots of back stabbing, and people around you who don't do anything at all and get away with it.

Good start to a systems engineering career
System Engineer (Current Employee) –  Andover, MAAugust 22, 2016
Raytheon is a great company to work for and it showed me the world of Systems Engineering which I enjoy very much. A typical work day is 9 hours with flex time. I have learned a lot about the integration of system of systems and data analysis. My co workers are great and working as a team is easy.

Great place to work!
Senior Production Specialist (Former Employee) –  McKinney, TXJuly 30, 2016
All I can say in the five years I worked there I learned a lot about the defense industry. Worked with a great group guys who always put their best foot forward and always showed support in a team goaled enviroment. The management for the most part was supportive but a bit demanding at times with unrealistic deadlines. Raytheon allows the employee to be able to showcase their skills and feel good about themselves. There's little micro management thus allowing the employees to work freely with little supervision. Work-life balance is good but could use some tweaking. Raytheon hires mostly retired vets who are very talented and know what the customer expects as they were once the customer at one time. Unfortunately, many contracts were dropped due to the change in our Government back in 2008 inadvertently causing massive layoffs. Hopefully if things change positively with our Government, Raytheon will prosper again.
Pros
Highly professional employees who really have pride in their work.
Cons
Long hours.

Can't get out of its own way, but not bad
ASIC/FPGA DESIGN SME AND DESIGN VERIFICATION SME (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALJuly 26, 2016
Lots of opportunity here to improve the machine that tends to get in its own way more times than not. Great for new grads to get their experience level up by being mentored by seasoned engineers. Great for professionals if you can deal with the inefficiencies the commercial world does not suffer. Great work/life balance as we work 9/80 work week
Pros
The world is a messy place, some people just need killing, and we are here to provide weapons to our troops so they can stay safe... lots of work to be done.
Cons
Advancement past E-6 to E-44 and up (Fellow) is virtually impossible

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.
