    I have been working at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very people friendly. Great at balancing work-life issues and concerns. Very flexible hours. Very competitive pay and benefits. Management that is in tune with the real issues affecting production. Highly skill and motivated operators and engineers.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the aerospace business and with delivery of product to the government, there are tons of "red tape" issues, an excessive amount of QA and other audits, lots of redundant procedures, etc. Equipment is aging and more money needs to be invested in new capital.

    Advice to Management

    Strategic improvement in capital planning and spending.

    Pros

    Great Work / Life Balance, Flexibility and Benefits

    overcoming the bureaucracy can be a challenge, and career opportunities can be a challenge for the non-engineer / scientist.

    I worked at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Vacation given up front, The Norfolk office closes down for 2 weeks at the end of the year for the holidays so no leave is required.

    Cons

    Sooo many..."good ole boy" environment but yet they attempt to promote diversity= FAIL, just go to their website and look at their "leadership"! There are people who have been there 20 plus years and they act like it so the less change the better. Slackers are promoted and not disciplined. The folks at the Norfolk office are disingenuous, unfriendly, and racist!

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the segment and start from scratch!!


  7. Love the people. But treatment not the same across the 4 Raytheon businesses.

    I have been working at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Pretty good benefits. Decent health insurance. Company match on 401K contributions (but it's only 4%). Management is very pro-diversity and pro-family. It's not hard to get a flexible work schedule if you can show that you're responsible and can be trusted to get your work done.

    Cons

    Raises average around 2% / year across the board. Even the EXCEPTIONAL employees don't get more than 4%. Raytheon IIS doesn't do profit sharing, but the other 3 Raytheon businesses do. So an exceptional employee at Raytheon IIS gets less than an average or poor employee at the other 3 Raytheon businesses. Raytheon IIS has "achievement awards" for employees who are exceptional, but they pale in comparison to the automatic profit sharing that employees receive in the other business units without lifting a finger. It's a bit of a slap in the face.

    Advice to Management

    Employees aren't buying the whole " IIS achievement awards are just as good as the profit sharing at the other businesses" thing. The decision to remove profit sharing from IIS is making MANY employees start to look elsewhere, and we're starting to lose good people. It was a slap in the face, all under the guise of "remaining competitive in the industry". Well, if that's true, then how can our competitors all afford profit sharing? And how can our sister Raytheon businesses afford it?

    I worked at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Raytheon provides a quality working environment, better than average benefits and a genuine concern over the wellbeing of their employees.

    Cons

    Like any large corporation, bureaucratic regulatory necessities can get in the way of day to day business and can have a negative effect on employee moral. Constant training on the benefits of diversity give the impression of special treatment to the targets of diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the emphasis on mentoring.


  9. Stressful division with failing business model - not representative of Raytheon as a whole

    I have been working at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services full-time

    Pros

    Great talent, collaborative work culture

    Cons

    Reactive, firefighting division whose short term decisions lead to long term damage. Low morale. Employees are treated as expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit your strategy, stop cutting benefits, and really invest in your people.

    Ethics, diversity, inclusion, pay considerations, teamwork

    Advice to Management

    Find and advance the talent that you have in your current pool of employees.

    I have been working at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can only speak for the Aurora, CO division. Other sites may be better environments. Benefits are good (not great) for a family life. Good starter company to gain experience and resume builder. Access to world travel opportunities within the company

    Cons

    Promotion, past entry to mid-level, is thru attrition and nepotism not actual skill. Management beats down motivation and buries the self-starters with bureaucracy and procedure. Takes 5 times the effort to do simple projects. Quickly burn out trying to find any accomplishment within your job. Management uses procedure to cover up incompetence. High turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight in the middle to upper management. Projects and programs are obnoxiously top heavy in managers. Open up to newer ideas and technologies and stop road-blocking them with piles of procedure and excuses. Cut (not eliminate) the power of the accountants to dictate engineering decisions.
