    Current Employee - Account Assistant in Harrogate, England

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work-life balance Meet a variety of different people on the job and some of the projects that are undertaken are very interesting.

    Cons

    Generally a positive experience nothing really to complain about, keep up the good work. Really enjoyed my time here no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to keep working in the way that you do, possibly implement some more up-to-date practices. Not much advice to give, great company.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance Interesting variety of high-brow clients Willing to invest if the case is made

    Cons

    Some staff have anger issues that are not addressed professionally. Deadlines and Projects are often inconsistent with time allowed for project. A lot of red tape and bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    If a complaint is made repeatedly against one member of staff, by multiple members of staff, take it more seriously.

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good starting salary if you negotiate correctly. Good colleagues. Good support network. Plenty of opportunities to impress and progress if you’re willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Sometimes you really need to cry for help before you get any. It only takes one person to ruin a reputation here - gossip is rife.

    Advice to Management

    Upskill and promote from within.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Gloucester, England

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Raytheon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    10.5% pension People are great (especially some of the developers) Gloucester location is reasonably good and has free parking (but also there is a con where there is not enough spaces to park for all employees) Good sized company Free snacks (biscuits, fruit and drinks)

    Cons

    I agree with a lot of the previous comments, favourites will go far and those who know how to play the system within the organisation You are micro managed and not trusted. On a weekly basis required to provide what you did, risks and opportunities to higher management, which is a total waste of time as nothing is done and is irrelevant. Even if you got nothing to report you are expected to write something. Most... software engineers feel its a waste of time but management don't listen They require bums on seats (seat warmers) Mon - Thur (8.30 - 5.30). Although can finish early on a Friday (8.30 - 1.30). There is flexibility for those that are liked and different rules apply to other individuals. Old infrastructure and still uses Lotus Notes for email Lack of diversity High number of people leaving, although junior staff with clearance are kept and paid more when threaten to leave Management are bullies. As per above parking is an issue (the extra parking that was available has been lost to another company close by as Raytheon were not quick to lease these spaces from the landlord), and has got worse.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing and trust your staff.

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

    Pros

    A wide variety of opportunities including expatriate contracts, reasonably competitive pay within defense industry, good overall benefits package. A good work/life balance within US federal contracts. In my experience, a low tolerance for workplace harassment.

    Cons

    401(k) matching does not match defense industry leaders. For positions within the US, the company has recently shifted from offering health insurance plans to making lump sum contributions to a health savings account.

    Advice to Management

    Within the company job listings, make the citizenship requirements for all positions explicit.
