I was at the company for more than 15 years. The first 10 years were good to great. The last 5 years were terrible as the company lost market share in the commercial aviation radar sector. As a result of constant layoffs and unreasonable workloads, the work environment became stressful and difficult.
Great pay and benifits.
Toxic work environment. Company on decline to closure.
Performed quality audits on airport surveillance radar equipment at all levels of assembly. Checked solder joints and hardware connections. Interesting work for someone who embraces electronics. Was hired through an agency for 6mos contract. When contract expired was not contacted by HR regarding my status. My manager told me just to keep coming in until advised otherwise. Worked for a full year and did not receive any job offer for permanent employment. Moved on to better wage and job with benefits.
Uncertainty in employment status
great DBA team and busy environment with excellent management policies. Always new projects and challenging issues on a daily basis which presents a best learning curve and great environment for growth...
located in a small town
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.
Muti-Task - working for 20 Engineers on a $700 M Radar Program Attended Meetings w/ Customers; Took Action Items - followed up for timely completion. Made travel arrangements world wide Organized dinners, receptions for Comany and also various Customers from Europe. Very challenging and rewarding experience working at Raytheon.
Working as a Quality Engineer at Raytheon I conducted frequent audits of the Quality Management System determined areas for improvement and corrective action, I collected failure data analysed it for defect trends and when a trend was detected. I developed and executed a plan for containment, isolation, and resolution of the defect.
Gained great experience in a number of different areas, such as configuration control, material control and builds and administration.
Look for work to be completed and assist as necessary. The program that I was originally hired for was delayed in its approval for design execution. Learned more about RADAR signal processing.
Good peer team
Unclear product roadmap
If you like working with brilliant minds, this is the place for you. Each day provides engaging conversation and one is always learning and stretching their capabilities.They are far, far too process driven and can't think beyond the process.
Overall a good company but could not always do what was required without approval from head office in the USA resulting in loss business.
