Topics regarding layoffs at Raytheon Co.
Don’t get to comfortable here. Don’t believe the company has any interest in investing in employees. Put out feelers (what can it hurt?) and always look for that next job opening. But most of all be prepared for the unexpected. And no matter how... — read more
The recent sell a proposition to sell the majority of the complex and eL Segundo and a large portion of property located behind Pratt and Whitney in Hartford is a pretty solid indicator, in my opinion , that once those properties are sold off... — read more
The defense side of legacy Raytheon is doing great and is what is keeping the new company afloat. IF UTC did not purchase/merge with Raytheon they would probably be in trouble. The question is Raytheon was doing great by itself so why the merger? — read more
I wonder how the story of Raytheon's consideration of billion dollar sale of a services unit will develop further? Any thoughts? The unit, which provides training for the repair and maintenance of equipment, vehicles and machinery, is likely to... — read more
They built the engine on that Denver plane.
During a recent Collins executive call, a high ranking VP mentioned that they were tasked with looking closely at overhead/indirect labor for the rest of Q1. Sounds like another round of cuts will be coming in late Q1, early Q2. Yup, it looks... — read more
There were some cuts yesterday, are they all done? Will there be more this week?
Well, looks like we have our new chief transformation officer. I don't know much about Bainee Michael Dumais but his job description, which includes as one of the main points cost cuts, is enough to have me worried. We all know that the easiest ways... — read more
I think the number was around 20k, but it might be more.
I apologize upfront as this is not an Unemployment posting. But, it is an example on how aerospace companies change hands "frequently" The Danbury, CT Optics facility has changed hands several times: Perkin-Elmer ... — read more
So the company expects those being laid off “will be offered the opportunity to work for one of the contractors” taking over the project. It's not a guarantee, but for them it makes it all better. Leave it to Raytheon to try to negate layoffs by... — read more

If the market makes a turn soon, do you think there will be Raytheon Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
Hearing it may be a possibility. Possible merger dissolution? Law suits for breach? Several class action suits currently, which will cripple UTC/RTX. UTC sues to recoup losses from subsidiaries, and then dissolution?
President of Collins sent out an email today saying more furloughs expected for next year, though not as much as this year. Employees will get Merit next year. Though I'd expect the furloughs to at least offset the Merit increases. Executives will be... — read more

Wow. This will definitely hit the Raytech stock price. Bad time to be a game-playing a**hole financial executive.
At least at the bottom in correction it states "most have been let go already" https://www.defensenews.com/2020/10/27/raytheon-to-lay-off-20000-amid-commercial-aviation-slide/
Found out that some upper level UTC folks came through our shop recently. ( I know we are all RTX now but it was only a matter of time before some legacy UTC big wigs came through). They said our building and processes are 15-20 years behind the... — read more
Raytheon Technologies is cutting as many as 450 jobs in Connecticut this week amid the continuing slump in air travel, the majority of them at its Pratt & Whitney facility in East Hartford that sells jet engines. A Pratt & Whitney spokesperson... — read more
For those legit people on here, go to RTN Broadcast, search for “Q&A with Greg Hayes and the BU presidents” published on September 22. About seven minutes in, Greg says that the layoffs are pretty much done and the communications are... — read more
Don't lull yourself into a false sense of security. It might not be today or next week, but we are due for a major cleanup. Too many overlapping jobs to last much longer. Realistically, it's really not sustainable long term either. I just wish that... — read more
Does anyone know of upcoming layoffs in the finance org for RMD? There's alot of redundancy between legacy IDS and MS roles, and some of stuff they are rolling out is sketchy as f*ck. CAMs, are no longer on the hook for programs, the IPT/CPTs are... — read more
Several posts today on the The Layoff's P&W page about people getting let go via. Zoom meetings with HR, effectively immediately.
I worked at Collians, and the people in NC havnt a clue what they are doing. Lots of unnecessary OT, people in positions with nothing to do and mangers allowing employees to do nothing all day. The CEO Hayes will still get his big payday while the... — read more
I currently work in RIS on a program. I was offered a promotion to work at corporate. I think I'm going to decline it because I'm too worried about potential lay offs at corporate. What would you do? They announced just yesterday 15,000 lay offs are... — read more
Who is safe and who is not?
Connecticut facilities are getting more of a closer look for being put to the blade due to much higher costs relative to other locations capable of performing the same operations.

I heard from Pratt Whitney 17-20% reduction by years end. So they have to give notice.
Ratheon in Riverside just laid off 90 union employee's.
All of this cost cutting and all of these layoffs, yet getting the stock removed from the DJIA is all that was achieved. Gotta love it!
I applied for an Infrastructure Engineer position at RTX and after all the interviews, d–g test, background test, I got a job offer. Looking at the news of Mass layoff (8K layoffs by Raytheon, more layoff by the end of 2020), I'm in a little... — read more
Looks like UTC got lucky with the merger/purchase of Raytheon. With all the cuts at PW and Collins, it looks like the Raytheon part is what is keeping the new company afloat. Still dont understand why Kennedy decided to merge/sell Raytheon. They... — read more
I've heard mostly rumors that it will happen this month (August) or next (September). I'm in the legal/contracts area and heard of a few terminations in legal at Collins but nothing thus far at PW. Curious if anyone has heard anything more... — read more
