"Raytheon Missile Systems IT was historically a leader in innovation under prior leadership. However, severe pressures to reduce the overhead budget of the business led to the consolidation of business units and transition of many IT functions to Corporate IT positions. This adversely impacted the organization's ability to serve specific business needs and led to indiscriminate reductions of headcount in critical skill positions. Resources are not being managed effectively by current leadership."
"Great company to work for, smart people, good leadership. The main drawback is how R&D money has been going done year after year, and also how much of our business is government related and the funding is lowering for the defense industry."
"I retired from Raytheon in August 2014."
"I began at E Systems which later was swallowed up by Raytheon. I wrote sw code for a spread spectrum communication system. The sw language was C/C++. I initially enjoyed my position there. I wore many hats there. I was an adaptable engineer. Over the years it became too bureaucratic. But I survived."
"I've worked on Ascension Island since 2012. The job is okay but it is a very isolated location. There is no opportunity for advancement and the pay is low."
"I worked for Raytheon (Hughes Aircraft) for over 30 years. This company is very good working with employees and suppliers."
"I have been working at Raytheon for two years and it's is a good company. The pay is good and has decent benefits. Unfortunately the focus on seniority really alienates all of us new hires regardless of skill."
"There was an East coast, West coast disconnect between management. Managers are sent out from the East who don't understand our business. Each new manager would undo his predecessor's work. Good managers work to help personnel achieve their goals. Education assistance was allocated to East cost personnel. Promotions can be fleeting. Worker's Comp is difficult. Retirement medical for me, $1k per month, High deductible."
"For a company that forces all underlings to take ethics training, the upper half seemed to have missed their training."
"Raytheon, for the most part, hires engineers that meet all of the job requirements posted for an opening. Raytheon, for the most part, is an engineering driven company. Raytheon SI, a group within Raytheon IIS, hires mostly 20-somethings for black, white or gray box vulnerability testing."
"Only sprockets, cogs, and widgets should consider working at Raytheon because that's how you'll be treated. Very poor software support; disgruntled IT staff; smallest cubicles EVER; on the other hand, there is an excellent cafeteria; and great benefits."
"At the time, Raytheon was a political workplace where you had to play BAll to get ahead there."
"This company is stuck in the past and is not willing to change. They are satisfied with being a large and sluggish company."
"I worked for Raytheon for almost 4 years during a period of excellent performance. Organization is extremely process driven and attempts to reach its goals. Like many cyclic companies performance goes through cycles and a 10-20% layoff in engineering led to my departure. Work balance and the 9-80 schedule were two important aspects that I enjoyed."
