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.


You get to be all you can be


You can work at 7-11 for the same pay

Great Place to Work

I enjoyed working for Raytheon. They pay well and they are very understanding of employee's personal lives. They are very flexible if you need to take the morning/afternoon to take care of personal business. Management seems to really care about employees not just the bottom line.

Decent Place to Work if You Want to Settle

Draining, disappointing, don't get comfortable there or you may die an early death, or be let go for trying to improve things.

What is the best part of working at the company?Benefits are good, salary is good.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Company attends to problems with short sighted solutions, very disorganized. You get different answers depending upon who you ask. Expectations can sometimes be unreasonable. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?One of those companies that tout Dei to the point where it feels condescending to diverse employees. Proof is not yet in the pudding or they wouldn't need to shout about it.What is a typical day like for you at the company?The same thing day in and day out. Not a company that is up to speed on best practices which is a little frightening considering their products.

Fun place to work at, people are extremely nice.

Raytheon Technologies was definitely a fun and easy going place to work at. Everyday there was something new to work on and people were generally happy. Willing to teach, etc. Only issue I had was switching shifts, despite this it's still a fun place to work at and I recommend for machinists.


Nice community, easy-going


Harder to switch shifts/to part time

Not all terrible but some days were my boss was trash, the jobs was cool. Got laid off and didn’t get severance after 10 years. I wouldn’t recommend working there honestly.

Good environment, lots to learn

You are entirely in control of your trajectory. Self starter/initiative will take you as far as you want as long as you’re good at politics. Culture can be hit or miss but know your audience and you’ll be fine.

The projects I worked on were challenging and impactful, and I had the opportunity to collaborate with incredibly talented colleagues.

9/80 is nice

I like the 3 day weekends every other week. Co workers were pretty stuck up and it has that corporate culture that sucks the life out of you. Thats it

Good pay, work tasks okay.

Okay to work. 9/80 is good. You see everything, good people and toxic people as well. Mostly good Id say. Big issue is the outdated technology and very little chance to work on new technology. Dealing more with processes. You can get support to advance your degree to a certain extend.

Good people, good use of skill set.

This is a quality place to work with good pay, fair amount of time off and decent benefits. It’s a great place to start a career, you can begin as custodian and progress to the top.

Politics, Politics, Politics

Getting to be very political, and if you don't get a long with someone or say the wrong thing it may not turn out well for you. However the co-workers are great and they do offer a wide variety of roles to learn from.

directionless and meaningless

directionless and meaningless work. The software developed ultimately gets stored in a warehouse that no one really uses. People are intelligent and talented though.

Great Company

One of the best companies I have ever worked for. I felt truly empowered and supported. Management was always helpful and truly had your back. The culture and environment made me want to come to work.
