Production Associate Sr. (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – May 9, 2018
Too much favoritism good old boy network. The work was not bad at all. Learned many things and the hours where great. Hardly no overtime and the benefits were excellent. The management was not fair and they distant themselves from the employees, only the favorites were taken care of.
Defense Travel Administrator (Former Employee) – Sierra Vista, AZ – May 9, 2018
It was a dream of mine to work for Raytheon, and then it was cut short. I have been looking for something to open in my career path, but I have not had any success. The Sierra Vista location was very relaxed, low cost of living place with plenty to see.
Taiwan Patriot Training Lead (Current Employee) – Taiwan – May 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.

Senior Manager, IT strategy and architecture (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – May 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.
Alternate work arrangements, education support, innovation
isolation between groups even in the same facility, politics
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – El Segundo, CA – May 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.
Very Challenging being the Operations Manager, have learned alot.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Newport Beach, CA – May 4, 2018

Systems Software Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – May 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.
Very Capable Professionals, Good Management and Challenging Projects
Principal Investigator/Senior Scientist (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – May 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.
Facilities Administrator (Current Employee) – Goleta, CA – May 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.
Systems Engineering, Integration and Test Manager (Current Employee) – El Segundo, CA – April 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. .
Supplier Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – California – April 26, 2018
