My team was great to work within, productive and challenging. The company overall is good, with interest in long term projects with the Australian Defence Industry.

A very competitive work culture, which neither respects or rewards hard work unless it’s by design. It’s very much a ‘Corporate’ culture, which doesn’t deliver money-for-value or respect the cultural values of its only customer. It’s more the McDonald’s of defence, if that’s what you like.
Pros
Steady short term contracts
Cons
No real long term careers

My Raytheon manager always told me this is a great company to begin and end with. I agree with his sentiment. If you are looking to start in this field, it's fantastic to mentor you to success. Yet, if you want to get promoted and be given better pay increases; leave them for a few years for a few promotions and pay bumps before returning.

Good place to work but need to get away from the military mindset and operate more as a business. Managers are understanding and provide a flexible work environment.

It was a great experience working with Raytheon in automotive training division. I wish I had worked more but the contract with client expired after 2 years. Great working culture, employee support, benefits and overall a beautiful organisation.

Every day is full of challenge and achievement. I learned about High Performance Teams. Data Management and the use of SharePoint. Management was excellent and supportive at all times. Most enjoyment was the challenge of meeting deadlines and recognition of work achievements.
Pros
Salary and benefits

Do not support remote working (telecommuting)

Enjoyed my job, didn't like the harassment that I received from other Raytheon employees. Poor management and I would not recommend working at Raytheon.

As I work on a contract basis no two days are the same. I am contracted to one account therefore cannot really comment on Raytheon's workplace culture. A typical day is working at one of the account's varied sites and to facilitate/delivery training to staff which includes field staff, office personnel, team leaders and management. The most enjoyable part of my job is the variety which it brings and the opportunity to meet new people and make a difference to their work lives.
Pros
Travelling to a variety of locations
Cons
None really

Defense contractors can be very bogged down in process. Raytheon has a culture focused in outcomes for the customer rather than turning the crank of process.
Cons
Long hours, lunch time is to be in your own time

Decent company to work for and specially for those starting off their careers. However it is difficult to grow professionally and the company politics and such will get in the way of promotions and raises. Top talent typically leaves after 5 years.
Cons
Not many opportunities to further career.

Sitting all day at computer not too hard, learnt the ins and outs of management, management were not there to back the workers. Co workers were all the same and in the same boat. Hardest part of the job was meeting unrealistic targets set by management. therefore the most enjoyable part of the job was going home after work due to the lack of management understanding.
Pros
Comfortable workplace with some benefits
Cons
lack of support from management or card for the real workers
