Pros

The benifits are the best. Wife went thru cancer and they paid almost 100% of the medical. The pay was pretty good too. Leadership is great they show their appreciation all the time.

Cons

applying for jobs, really hard to find out if they reviewed your resume or even are considing you for a position but I guess that is the way with most companies.

Advice to Management

keep doing a good job, I think the company in a whole was the best company I worked for.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Has been declining for years. Very little in the way of new projects, and the sales of Air Traffic Control radars has fallen off dramatically. Poor work environment, with high turnover, interdepartmental feuds, favouritism and politics, and inept, lethargic mangers. Lots of deadwood here, just waiting to retire. The future for this facility is very questionable, and would definitely NOT recommend it to anyone looking for challenging or interesting work.

    Cons

    Pay is reasonably good compared to the rest of the Canadian aerospace industry.

    Advice to Management

    Raytheon Corporate (U.S.) needs to take a hard look at the inefficiency and mismanagement of resources here.


  2. "Very bureaucratic, little room for advancement, metrics drive behavior."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Co-workers are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Work-life balance is highly respected, flexible work schedule, ability to telecommute.

    Cons

    Management is more driven towards metrics than doing the job right. Management can be very tactful and in some cases out right disrespectful. Processes and procedures are outdated/incorrect with little to no effort made to improve, several instances of non-value added work (ex. multiple reports than need to be manually created that give the same information).

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Raytheon's values are no hidden agendas and respect. I find that no one here says what they really mean and are quick to judge and degrade.
