Tier III Technical Support in Ashburn, VA
on March 24, 2019
Its a job like all the others
It was a great company to work for if you wanted to get the corporate field but they pay the lowest and that's a sad thing. Not much else to say about the company. I had a great boss but even he left because of such small pay.
Senior Facilities Management Engineer in Guam, GU
on May 2, 2021
What I learned about or clients is that they appreciate being told in a special situation straight out if this project or solution will solve their impact and improve their mission. This requires an understanding of the problem and how to solve it together with your client.
Operations in Dallas, TX
on April 23, 2021
During the interviewing process, the interviewing panel painted a great picture of plenty of career advancement, talented management for leadership development, and work/life balance. None of which are true! Once I started, it was a mess of issues and managers don’t care to lend guidance. The communication is extremely poor from management with no sense of direction.You’re expected to work long hours, including weekends and to answer your company cell at all hours 24/7. Career advancement??! Don’t even think about it. Promotions are based on who sucks up the most instead of choosing someone who has the credentials (i.e. education and experience). After noticing several of my colleagues trying to promote and declined, just to see they promoted someone who had more seniority (yes, in a non-bargaining environment) with less education than the candidate who was declined. No wonder they this place has so many inadequate processes. Bottom line....this place is a nightmare. Don’t let these car salesman persuade you to buy a lemon. There are so many organization changes, shifting management around to keep them, budget cuts or not enough budget for anything now, and managers expecting you to do their job as well as your job.
Systems Engineer II in Richardson, TX
on April 18, 2021
The company cares only about how its people can increase profit margins and business development. Turn over is high. Mid-level management does not know how to lead but only knows how to take the credit for what is good and dodge responsibility for what is bad. Promotions are tenure-based and are given to those with good relationships with management, not based on merit.
TSA (Total Ship Activation) Integration Engr in San Diego, CA
on April 9, 2021
I was a contractor twice at Raytheon IDS, San Diego, 10 years apart, so I could not vouch for paid time off, etc. My first stint was 4-plus years under DS, the second one was only 6 months, after which I was contract to hire, but when it came time to hire, they were having layoffs, so they had to let me go. After I moved back to the East Coast with a new job, they e-mailed to ask if I was still available on a contract, but I had just moved across the country, so of course not.The headquarters in Mass. is always trying to shut Raytheon San Diego down. They have pretty near succeeded. Other divisions are doing well, but IDS is a mere shadow of the facility I knew in 2003-2008. In 2017, although they received the lucrative Zumwalt TSA contract, but it things had cooled off, and morale was down. I liked working there... the jobs interesting and the co-workers all very professional.

Interview Questions

Usual questions.

Shared on October 29, 2020

Interviewer asked many technical questions. I answered his questions. The interviewer was somewhat condescending and rude. At the end of the interview, the interviewer asked if I questions for him. I said yes. I asked my first question ( a technical question) - I got a very brief answer and the interviewer ended the interview by saying " we are out of time". I was not impressed at all with this person or with the interview. I would not want to work for this person and if all section managers are similar to him, I would not want to work for Raytheon.
