Electronic Assembler (Former Employee) – Hampton, VA – March 18, 2018
Once transferred to the hangar work was fast paced but with wonderful leads to help with any questions. Thoroughly trained and able to be certified in all areas needed and became the aircraft tech. Management at that time did not understand the work needs of the employees at the hangar. Due to that they lost 3 highly skilled workers. Our workplace culture was job first and held to a high standard but wonderful co-worker who were always willing to help and to keep a smile on your face. Hardest part was when the 757 had to completely stripped and everything reinstalled in a short time span requiring much overtime. The most enjoyable part of the job was the great people I worked with. I still consider them friends and keep in contact.
You work very hard and are rewarded when a program comes in.
Director, Customer Engagements & Integration (Former Employee) – Tewksbury, MA – March 17, 2018
It is a company that is ethical, professional and has been doing a great job on being more diversified. It has come a long way in promoting woman, I had worked there 48 years and had seen a lot of changes over the years. I enjoyed the people, liked being involved in different things, (marketing) and learned a great deal from this company.
Work life balance has come a long way
Men get promoted easily and a woman is always trying to get ahead
Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Mount Laurel, NJ – March 16, 2018
I had a great manager and great coworkers. The work was challenging and rewarding but the technology stack is ancient. There are two main problems that I would point out: the problem of 'why change it if it ain't broke' and the problem of 'it would cost too much to update it'. The office I worked at was small but I had more than enough personal space.
Senior Business Development Executive (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – March 14, 2018
Raytheon Technical Services at the time had a management team that was out of sync with the rest of the company. Poor business tools at the time (Lotus Notes) and lack of established and proved business processes.
A great place to learn about how government contracts work.
Administrative Associate (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – March 14, 2018
I loved my job here. I learned a lot about the equipment, prepping, painting, refurbishing, testing, etc. I also learned a lot about Supply Chain, Configurations Management, documentation audits for procedures and local instructions. Management had changed several times over the course of the last five years. I was lucky in that the managers I had trusted me to do my job without using the micro-management method. Even though there could be several requests for many different things from me over the course of 8 hours. However, I enjoyed the challenge of a busy day the most because when I was busy, I felt productive.
Typical day entails the following but not limited too. Tooling and test equipment design work, documentation, coordinating/managing of wind chill data, preparing information for quotes/request for purchase, interaction with the shop, assembly and fit issues...etc, fielding questions from vendors and suppliers on new or on going P.O.'s, daily meeting with P.M.'s P.E's other engineers and designers, fielding questions and concerns from QA and QC, preparing bill of material to go into purchase list, documentation of processes both for the shop and our engineering group.
All my skills in my career. Management had allot of training and was very professional. The work environment was very professional and relaxed. Hardest part of the job was leaving. the people and level of experience was great. Being respected for my job knowledge and experience along with the freedom to be creative.
Senior Administrative Manager and HR Liaison (Current Employee) – Dulles, VA – March 13, 2018
I enjoy working at Raytheon. I have worked in defense contracting for ten years. The people are hard working and driven to success.
I enjoy being a driving force in our success and moving the needle.
I am wanting to better myself, and go back into a senior admin role. After many reorganizations, my current position has changed and I need to have more of a challenge and miss the interactions at the higher levels of management.
Online Training. Flexible 9.80. Three weeks PTO.
Lack of projects where I can make a difference and help move the needle
Production Associate Sr (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – March 12, 2018
I have worked for the company for over ten years now and really enjoy it. The company is very flexible which is great if you have small children. They allow us to flex our time no matter what department you work in. Just be consistent and don't take advantage of the system.
