"I've worked at Raytheon since 2018 and I've found it to be a well-organized company. The company is very encouraging with work-life balance and there is a multitude of programs available. I've met some very smart engineers here and have developed my skills while working here. I've found that getting promotions is too political and less dependent on accomplishments and skills and more on the relationship you have with the managers. The company seems to be growing fast."
"Good company to work for."
"I worked for Raytheon for almost two years and it was great experience. The leadership was solid and the work environment was very professional."
"I've worked at this Company around six months. It is a very strict company."
"They are a revolving door looking for someone else to use and abuse. It's not a place you are treated well or going to have a career. Look somewhere else. It's very stressful and no feelings of security. Best thing I ever did was move on."
"I'm at year 25 of my career and worked across 6 companies. Raytheon was the worst and I’m thankful that I was able to get out quickly. I'm convinced most of these reviews are fake. Morale across all divisions are the lowest I've seen. RMS seems to have the most unhappy people, but you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who likes the company. The section heads and managers at RMS are the worst I've seen throughout my 25 year career. If you're not in the "boys-club" or a white male, then it’s darn near impossible to get rated correctly at review time and you get a lousy raise. Bosses lie to keep the people they don't like down. It happens across divisions but seems much worse at RMS. The only people who move up are the ones who know someone or were designated a "hi-pot" by a friend in upper management. Most of these hi-pot’s are hacks and lie about what they do. The employees who've been wronged are afraid to say anything. When they do HR comes against the person who reported the wrongdoer to HR."
"Good people, great benefits."
"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."
