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.
Steady short term contracts
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.
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.
Salary and benefits
Do not support remote working (telecommuting)

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.
Travelling to a variety of locations
Work place is busy and interesting Learned about Project management and systems engineering management local managers are really hard to relate to Most co workers are excellent hardest part of the job was constant changing of my position unable to settle into a position as I kept being moved to assist other that where not capable of completing their tasks, putting up with local managers attitudes.
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.
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.
Comfortable workplace with some benefits
lack of support from management or card for the real workers
Typical day is to check previous days error log, engineering logs, discrepancy reports, scheduled maintenance activities and e-mails. Learned about NETWORK Management and administration, Windows environments and SAN storage. Most enjoyable part of the job is the day to day challenges.
Stable work environment.
Location is in the middle of Australia. Very remote.
