"Loved My Job!"Sep 27, 2019

Former Employee - Senior Procurement Specialist

I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Team willing to help you with anything you need. Management understanding of issues that pop up and are wanting to find a way to help. Work as advertised and no hidden duties. Flexible hours. Time... off loaded at the beginning of the year so you don't have to wait for holidays after you earn it. Willing to let you go if you find a better position that makes more money or fits your unique situation. They understand you need to grow.

Cons

They will low-ball you in salary, but if you stick to your guns, you will get close, if not what you ask for.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what your doing!

Engineering Aide

I worked at Orbital Sciences

Pros

Working with rockets. Great people. Very good training program. Over all, I would go back if I could afford the lower wage.

Cons

Not much to complain about. I would have liked higher wages. The work was good and the people excellent so no real cons.

Advice to Management

Raise wages
