I have been working at Raytheon full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I really like working for Raytheon in Tucson. I started as a Hughes employee in 1997, but no one told me about the Hughes retirement plan. There is lots of work. The people are family. The cost of living in Tucson is low. The company, under Bill Swanson, is progressive.

Cons

Tucson. Cow town. Lots of red tape. Slow to accomplish what needs to be done due to being a defense firm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There's a lot of grooming to those who "appear" to fit the mold. It's tiring to see the same (useless) people promoted year after year.

    Pros

    Do exciting work, innovative work
    Good about developing new talent
    Allow lateral movement around the company
    Solid core products

    Cons

    The company is pretty large and at times the bureaucratic processes can be confusing and daunting, this is on top of the huddles one has to jump through working with government consumers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep developing young talent and work to expand our market reach into other countries

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, interesting projects, tuition reimbursement, lots of young people, a very nice benefits package, ability to move around in the company

    Cons

    I don't have too many negative things to say about Raytheon. I left because I wanted to move back to my home state. My only complaint is that it's a defense job and the funding relies a lot on politics and who's president at the time.
