Former Employee - Program Manager in Houston, TX
Former Employee - Program Manager in Houston, TX

I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Large company, major business unit of Raytheon Company which is a major defense contractor. Starting 4/1/2013, RTSC combined with Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems to become Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services business unit. Numerous avenues for career growth, good benefits, solid business model and potential.

Cons

Frequent reorganization. Tends to be high-priced on contracts which limits the number of contracts they win in this competitive environment. Cross functional team management structure causes a lot of cost and schedule overhead, slow to make business decisions, slow to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to streamline decision making and lower overheads by trimming the organization.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunites to grow, learn, and move if you choose. Generally very well managed and smart leaders.

    Cons

    Easy to get caught up as just a number. If people want to do the bare minimum, they can get away with it and it's very difficult to get rid of bad employees.

    Former Employee - Quality Systems Manager in Tucson, AZ

    I worked at Raytheon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Every other Friday off, Great people to work with (includes engineers), Good benefits, Fitness Center, matching 401K now up to 6% since pensions are no longer offered. Challenging technologies to work on. Clean world class manufacturing facilities. Lots of training available if you have a smart manager who wants you to improve.

    Cons

    Hard to move up in a pay grade unless you move to another business unit. The ugly part is you are the first to be RIF'd if you moved to a new business unit and there are DOD budget cuts or the new contracts are delayed or did not get awarded. Like all companies some managers promote their suck ups into leadership positions and you have to learn how to deal/work with them if you need to stay put.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire managers who use intimidation on their workers - it prevents continuous improvement and quality. The new generation of workers do not need diversity training - they grew up with diversity as a way of being. Stop age discrimination. Pay more for experienced workers - you still need them.
