If you enjoy working with your hands this is a great place to work. I've learned a lot there and enjoy the people I work with. I like the pace it definitely makes the day go faster if your on the right job.
Good benefits paid vacation and sick time
stress and overtime
New foreign management has left a once thriving Canadian grown European founded company a far cry from its heritage and former business practices. Staff never feel confident that their day to day activities and job positions will be secure for very long. Common positive perspectives of the general company environment are a common misconception when compared to its reality.
group health benefits
Human resource department is very unfeeling and unyielding
This is for NWS Raytheon North Bay. This is self-serving company where only family and friends are employed. There is total disregard for fairness and integrity,transparency in hiring practices.
Excellent working environment.Friendly technical staff.
Company hides behind its employment in order to get around discrimination.
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.

Jobs at Raytheon
Contract work makes the job not worth pursuing. Lots of old timers there that control the way the shifts are made up. No day shift for contract workers unless in training. They favor people hired through family and will place then in a better area with better shift coverage. Don't waste your time until they decide to fully invest in yours.
no job security, lower wage for contract workers, care only about perm full timers
Raytheon provides a safe, professional work environment. Great people, good benefits and good pay. I would consider this to be secure employment with a long future of opportunities.
Safe, positive, professional environment
shift work, some positions are only part time
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
This was a great job. I loved learning new and interesting things. the engineers I worked with were exceptional and I learnt something new each day for 5 years. We had company toonie and loonie draws for employees who wanted to participate each Friday. Elegant Christmas parties for employees. Good benefits and company profit sharing.
eventually had a lay off
A great environment to work in with some highly knowledgeable people, very competitive salary and conditions. Management were always approachable and willing to help with any/all issues.
great conditions, great people.
frequent quiet periods
AvWorks is a good place to work, however there is too much internal politics and red tape. the salary is not the best for the job and they will always try to give you more responsibility for no extra pay.
Not great salary's or advancement options
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.
