Raytheon is a company with a long proud history. It means a lot when you consider our work directly affects our military might and performance.
Administrative Specialist / Executive Assistant (Current Employee), Tucson, AZJune 15, 2014
Pros: the skills i've learned and the respect for the awsome jobs my engineers accomplish every day.
The day usually begins around 7:00 A.M. and ends around 5:30 P.M. I've learned a lot of technical skills but I'm no "techno geek." My management has consisted of senior engineers who are over worked (their Blackberries are always ON.) My current co-workers are fabulous; we truly make a great time. That is, after all, what it's all about, TEAM WORK. – more... Hardest part: the long days. We work 9-hours days, with every other Friday off. However, those 9 hour, more often than not, turn into 10 or 11 hours. The best part: the acknowledgement I get for a job well done, and the enduring friendships I have made in the last 15years. – less

Building products that support those in harms way defending our freedoms
Configuration Management Engineer (Former Employee), Fort WayneJune 10, 2014
Pros: work that makes a difference
Cons: dependennce on government for funding that has lost its way
DoD is a peculiar environment where failure could cost the lives of servicemen who have already signed up for dangerous work defending the constitution and our freedoms. Every day I was motivated to provide the best in my comfortable office for those who lay it all on the line. My co-workers shared that vision. We saw our processes as tools to serve – more... that vision. – less

A very enjoyable place to work. The company was a people oriented environment.
Senior Technical Training Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Wayne, INMay 30, 2014
Pros: flex time, excellent medical benefits, people oriented company
Cons: short lead times for training.
I was a military trainer for a radio that was produced by the company. If I was in the office, I would continuously update my training material, write new material, or work with the radio equipment in the lab. I had a very positive management team who would allow me to work my ideas. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. My coworkers and I got along very – more... well. I traveled worldwide teaching the military the operation of our radio. I enjoyed the travel immensely. When I wasn't on the road, we worked with flex time. It was very beneficial for home life. I believe the hardest part of the job was having everything ready to go when a short deadline was given by the military.
I enjoy working with people and as a teacher, experienced much satisfaction working with my students. My classes normally would have up to 25 students at a time, although there were times when it would be more or less. – less

SENIOR SYSTEMS ENGINEER II (Current Employee), dallas,txMay 29, 2014
They have put the systems in place that take whatever little fun exists in engineering right out.

Plus, they are sneaky about layoffs. A bunch of cowards, 2 people here, 17 there, drips and drabs over time, all the while saying nothing. Very depressing

Sr. Multidisciplined Engineer II (Former Employee), Tucson, AZMay 26, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits, lunches
Cons: some managers could be more personal and caring
Great pay/benefits, room for advancement, great co=workers.
Hardest part was when I was involuntarily placed in a lead position when I wasn't qualified for (and I protested it!) and subsequently failed with everything snowballing from that point on until I was laid off despite a remarkable comeback with very successful results on my last program.
