"I've been working at Raytheon, Space and Airborne Systems for the past 15 years right out of college. The people are friendly; the management I've had were generally not overbearing; and, the work is challenging. This is a defense contractor in the aerospace industry, so the pace tends to be slower than the commercial sector. But overall, I enjoyed working for them."

"Great company and benefits. Educational reimbursements. Most leaders are very helpful."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Take initiative , research everything and keep up with the language and org charts."

What don't you like about working at Raytheon?

"Within the various functions the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing at times. There seems to be a languange barrier which tends to cause meetings to be unsucessful at times. Other functions tend to point fingers when something goes wrong. There is a huge gap of old vs new... people who have worked for 20 plus years are the know it alls and people who have less than 10 years are viewed as new kid on the block. Those eligible for retirement never retire causing mid career employees to stay where they are due to the economy and other factors."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Possibly a stronger knowledge transfer program. Younger folks have the challenge of being respected by the older generation since they lack the massive amount of years in the company."

"Excellent pay and benefits, reasonable commute, the few intelligent people who weren't scared away or laid off."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If politics is your passion and you have no conscience that would stop you from walking in at the end of a project and claiming credit for all of it, your opportunities for advancement are limitless! But if you have any integrity at all, run away as fast as you can!"

"An environment where politics and bureaucracy dominate and employees are treated like garbage. Managers were always brought in from the outside, sending the message that there is no career advancement. Those who do advance do so by claiming credit for the work of others.

"Create a culture that encourages innovation and teamwork rather than politics and back-stabbing."
