Great

Intern (Former Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I worked at Raytheon

ProsPeople, location, work hours, parking, security, food, facilities, offices, work out area, employee discounts, employee benefits, interesting projects, fast paced sometimes

ConsSlow at times, some of the work required security access, hierarchy was sometimes too stiff for creative thought, not a clear career ladder

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good Place to Start, Difficult to Stay

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Fort Wayne, IN

I worked at Raytheon


Pros: - Mgmt encouraged 9/80 work cycle. Most times, walked the talk in work/family balance. - Really pushed… Cons: - Company is real big on loyalty to the old timers, not unusual to have 15~20 people a month get their 25 or 30 year… More

Good job, but not for the ambitious

Senior Systems Engineer I (E03) (Current Employee)
Woburn, MA

I have been working at Raytheon


Pros: * Very high compensation per unit of effort ratio, mainly because the denominator is very small. * Because Raytheon is a government contractor, full time employees… Cons: * Very dependent on the defense cycle. After 9/11, the defense industry was booming. Lots of hiring, lots of money for interesting work. With all… Advice to Senior Management: Make employees feel better. I can understand why the company is run the way it is run. The government pays by "man hours" for many… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
