What do you like about working at Raytheon?
"Co-workers and management were generally likable, if not the easiest to work with/for. Wages are more than reasonable, provided you have even a small skill in managing money. Benefits are outstanding. Tuition assistance and a huge number of training and educational programs will really benefit a driven individual willing to seek them out. This particular job represented a fulfilling variety of duties ensuring that I always felt challenged, and I was granted a great deal of freedom to creatively handle these."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Easy to get in, dedication will bring you through training to your first military job. My BEST advice in this day and age is to give serious thought to the military job field that you choose. Don't pick the equivalent of a college philosophy degree and find yourself unable to get a job 4,8, or 20 years later. Your basic veteran is a dime a dozen and that status won't help by itself, Nuclear technicians and aviation mechanics get those civilian jobs. The military is the first part of your lifelong career, it will never be all of it. Figure out from day one what you can do while you are serving to increase your marketability after you leave."
What don't you like about working at Raytheon?
"The overall job security in which the military is known for seems to be heavily eroding with recent force reduction measures and consequences. An outstanding achiever will relatively not be worried, but anyone in that second tier or lower has good cause. This year, I saw a few of my peers forced out for being unable to get promoted within their required timeframe (good Marines who faced an awfully competitive selection process). As for the actual position, I truly cannot recall any other period in my service where I dealt with such a blur of tasks, they avalanched down faster than I was able to organize and complete them. Our training department was also responsible for most administrative/logistical duties concerning company operations, and nearly all types of work that couldn't be easily pigeon-holed into another section."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Dedicate more thought to the excessive turnover in some of our positions and the problems this situation brings."
