Pros
Team players, family oriented, fun enviroment

I wasn't there long enough to experience the cons

Taiwan Patriot Training Lead (Current Employee) –  TaiwanMay 7, 2018
a typical day at work can be a fast pace or slow pace. I learned about FMS and working with other departments within the company. Management was easy going and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job would be not working extra hours. The most enjoyable part of the job meeting new people and understanding how to work with other countries.
Pros
ability to learn new things
Cons
lunch

Raytheon is very market driven
Senior Manager, IT strategy and architecture (Former Employee) –  Richardson, TXMay 6, 2018
Like most defense related companies it is very project driven. Though they try to support alternative work arrangements, it is very dependent on the individual manager's style. Raytheon is divided up to very separate groups and it can be difficult to understand opportunities in other parts of the organization. Though they do use internal social media... it is still a very divided organization.
Pros
Alternate work arrangements, education support, innovation
Cons
isolation between groups even in the same facility, politics

Bad culture
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CAMay 5, 2018
A culture of older, bureaucratic white male and female defense hawks beholden to Wall Street analysts and quarterly profits. 1980s-styled work spaces include gray cubicles, zero natural sunlight and Aramark food service.
Pros
401k match
Cons
Infighting

Will never work for Raytheon
Systems Software Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Aurora, COMay 4, 2018
Hired based of my security clearance alone. Stated they would train me and never really did. Had to learn the job on the fly for the 2 years I was there. Was told I would be promoted and the date of promotion kept getting pushed back and pushed back until finally their answer was, "not sure anymore". Management was terrible with the contract I was on. I have determined that I will never work for this company again.
Pros
None
Cons
Bad environment, bad management, broken promises.

Very Capable Professionals, Good Management and Challenging Projects
Principal Investigator/Senior Scientist (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAMay 3, 2018
Raytheon is a very good company for a broad array of technologists and non-technologists. They are involved in very challenging programs largely for the government that make a difference. The only downside is that you are responsible for finding your gig and securing a position when your current contract/program is coming to a close. If you can't find a slot, you're laid off.

Busy, different every day.
Facilities Administrator (Current Employee) –  Goleta, CAMay 1, 2018
Paperwork and troubleshooting, working with Customers. Have learned you can't change others and their work ethic. Management can use some training. The culture itself is pretty layed back. Working with many different personalities. Enjoy the flexibility and being able to work alone, minimal supervision.

great for a fresh college grad or an old person. The main focus of this company is for defense . Think standing at the DMV when applying. Average is mandatory.

Hard to get promoted within
Systems Engineering, Integration and Test Manager (Current Employee) –  El Segundo, CAApril 26, 2018
The company is great, until you want to advance. There is mentorship, but it is difficult when you are a SME. The company wants to keep you in the area of expertise instead of developing in another area of expertise.

Love the company, but need to leave to get promoted. .
Pros
Great Company and Brand
Cons
Hard to get promoted within when you are a SME
