Welcoming workplace with friendly employees
Co-Op Student (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON5 May 2016
The moment I stepped in the front door of the building, I was greeted in a very polite manner. Through my co-op work term, I became acquainted with nearly everyone in the IT department, and I even made connections with the General Manager of the building.

Overall, it's a very welcoming atmosphere where you're rewarded for the work you put in.

The company did treat their employees like family
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Calgary AB17 February 2015
Raytheon is a company that really does make it's employees feel like family. The benefits and salary were very highly competitive.
The hardest part of the job I would have to say were the long hours and month end. It was not uncommon to work 14 -16 hour days during that time.

Review of being an HEO for Raytheon
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Antarctica15 November 2013
Long contracts but offset by the 'adventure' of Antarctica. Unprofessional work environment, both from management and coworkers. Enjoyed the job tasks but very poor pay without hazard pay or tax exemption. Salary actually decreased each year.
Pros
Antarctica
Cons
Salary and lack of professionalism
