"Extremely dysfunctional work environment."
"I've worked for Raytheon for almost a year, plus being a summer intern before that. While many will likely be able to strive here, it is also very possible to get bogged down in all the paperwork and processes that Raytheon has developed and that must be fitted to any and every application. It is occasionally hard to get real work done because of this, and far too many employees seem content to sit around in meetings all day accomplishing next to nothing."
"I've been with Raytheon for 9 years and have always enjoyed their work/life balance, 9/80 schedule (every other Friday is off), and breadth of work."
"Great company to work for if you are interested in Radar."
"Great company to work for, but folks belonging in the Union sometimes get in the way of Engineers. There is a fine balance to maintain."
"It was a good, strong company!"
"Good work environment and great colleagues."
"Great company and very fast paced."
"Raytheon is a very good company for a new professional starting out. There are a great deal of resources and a wealth of knowledge there. To set yourself apart as an innovator can be difficult, though. It is a large company with a lot of red tape and bureaucracy. The compensation there is good especially considering the lower cost of living in Tucson."
"Great company and awesome people."
"I've been at Raytheon for 18 years. I have found that it's a good place to work generally, but I would characterize the managing style as "Old School". As such, the company seems slow to embrace change. However when they do, they ask for little employee input. One major problem with the company is a very unfair method of promotions that pits completely unrelated people against each other."
"I worked for Raytheon IIS for just over a year on Schofield Barracks, HI. Throughout that time the actual interaction directly with anyone from corporate was minimal, and the site management remained professional and on task at all times. In my opinion Raytheon as a whole is a terrific company to work for."
"I've worked many years for Raytheon company got along with just about all my supervisors, managers, and leads. Always obeyed the policies and rules of the company. Left many times working by myself on different programs."
"Great place to work with many smart and talented people."
"I have been working for Raytheon Missile Systems since 2007. Raytheon has been a great place to work. Everyday is spent brushing shoulders with some of the best and smartest people in the work force. I really appreciate the respect they have shown for work-life balance."
