Current Employee - Product Development Technician in El Segundo, CA

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

Pros

Excellent pay
Great benefits
Management shows appreciation for responsibility and hard work
Interesting and important work
Comfortable work environment

Cons

Since it is a "union shop", seniority counts more than hard work
"Legacy workers" just kill time until retirement
Lower management can be disorganized when setting priorities

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just because workers in another state work for less pay, too much rework of product negates the savings.

Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Former Employee - Senior Technical Support Engineer in El Segundo, CA

    I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to make a real difference and was given the freedom to directly determine my own and my team success. Lots of senior people to mentor from and lots of young blood to provide energy.

    Cons

    Pockets of legacy employees who still think it is Hughes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the hallways and talk to people.

    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Tucson, AZ

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

    Pros

    Very few to discuss benefits are like other aerospace compaines and are on the decline...as I said very few pros.

    Cons

    The place is filled with Hot-Heads, you will go home hating your job every-day. The company spends $1000's on a "respect" campaign making posters and mandating group training emphasizing “respect” however when you get in meetings or private settings coworkers turn into maniacs. The FACT the company has a respect campaign signifies they have a problem. Why would they spend money on a respect crusade if there were no problem?....STAY AWAY FROM RAYTHEON TUCSON.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of hot heads!
