"Minimal compensation for hard work. Average raise was 2% this year. Over the past 4 years, this was the highest raise that I received, yet all of my reviews were good. Raytheon has chosen to reward new hires in an effort to entice them to stay at the expense of the more experienced engineers. The young ones still leave yet management never learns. Oh, yeah, they took away a small incentive payment that we used to receive, except for upper management, of course, they still get theirs. The work can be interesting yet often mundane. The good projects go to the handpicked "favorites". Future growth is limited for those technically inclined, yet there seems to be an endless road of promotions if you want to go the management route. Naturally, the "brochure" says otherwise."
"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."
"I have worked for Raytheon for almost 15 years, but don't have any experience with other companies to compare to. Like any company they have pros and cons."
"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."
"Raytheon is a very good company to work for. It strives to be the most admired aerospace company in the world."
"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."
