Raytheon IDS is a company in a stable market, room for career growth, and interesting work.

Quality Assurance Engineer I (Current Employee)
Tewksbury, MA

ProsIt's very very stable. It's a great place to start out and get your feet wet. If you're looking for job security, decent pay, and a chance to make an impact right out of the gate, work at Raytheon.

ConsThe majority of the products you work on are very very very old. Most of the job is redesign or sustainment. Communication among partnering organizations is scarce. Lots of rework and downtime. A lot of times the documentation on something designed in the 70s is missing or points to a person rather than a document title.

Advice to Senior ManagementLocate the single points of failure in legacy programs, open lines of communication, better use of lessons learned and overall knowledge sharing.

Prevent history from repeating itself!!!
