    I have been working at Raytheon Technologies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, compny shuts down around late December for time off. Good for career start.

    Cons

    Slow to adopt new technologies, silo'd teams. Low pay and barely cost of living raises. Extremely political with infighting. Management sometimes denigrates and blacklists employees. Constant re-orgs and occasional layoffs. Slow career growth. Training is non-existent. Not very good for long term career.

    I worked at Raytheon Technologies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Interesting technology, good benefits package, abundant management opportunities for the technically savvy. A strong commitment to a “can’t we all get along” style diversity program. Over the years, senior management has started to look more representative of the site population (versus the traditional collection of older white men).

    Cons

    The bottom line is the top priority. Do not expect your engineering supervisor to be familiar with the current tools or technology. The process is more important than the process. Security gives out guessed guidance on security policies. They directed me to develop classified code for Sentinel/P1350 without a security clearance.

    Pros

    Challenging work on projects that you have the satisfaction of knowing contributes to national defense. Get to work on cutting edge problems.

    Cons

    Employee turnover due to increased use of contractors on projects who do not necessarily feel ownership of their product. Deadlines are hard, which sometimes results in a lot of midnight oil being burned.

    I worked at Raytheon Technologies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    My experience is with the old Hughes part of Raytheon based in El Segundo, CA. Work / Life Balance Good benefits Competitive Pay Good line management Freedom to explore different disciplines Wide variety of technologies to work with: Over the years I have worked as a Test Engineer, Software Engineer (Enterprise and Embedded) , System Engineer, System Architect, Network Architect, Software Architect, etc... I was very lucky that my management let me explore various technology disciplines. Throughout my 32 years I stayed on the technical track which I love. I never had an interest in management and always had the choice to stay technical. After 32 years I retired and started a new career at another Defense contractor.

    Cons

    Like all organizations you must find the right fit. Not all managers and / or programs are a positive experience. Some areas of the company are cliquish which can lead to group think and a suppression of ideas. Line management catering to the views of the program at expense of the group even though it may be detrimental to the overall success of the program in the long run Incompetent management. Going forward on a project without proper system engineering which leads to an inferior results and an unsuccessful program. As with all large corporations the list can go on and on.. However this is in the minority at Raytheon / Hughes in El Segundo, CA.
