How did YESNET help you integrate into Raytheon?
YESNET gave me a community of peers to learn from. I had grown up in Massachusetts and didn't need help acclimating to the location. Instead, I, who had never worked in an Engineering Environment, needed assistance acclimating to the Defense Industry and Professional World. YESNET gave me peers to assist in that transition... YESNET gave me a community both professionally and personally to help me transition from college to the "real" world.
How has YESNET impacted your time at Raytheon?
YESNET has given me countless opportunities. Through lunch and learns, I have been given the opportunity to grow professionally, learning about everything from social media in the Defense Industry and growth in adjacent markets to 401K investments. YESNET has given me opportunities to engage Raytheon leadership in smaller, more personal networking and teambuilding sessions. It has given me the opportunity to volunteer in my community and create working relationships and friendships with my colleagues. It has given me the opportunity to continually develop myself, our community, and our company.
What is your favorite YESNET experience?
One of my favorite events was a community volunteer event at Boston's Museum of Science Day. Each employee was paired with a local high school student and we explored the museum. It was a ton of fun experiencing the museum from a younger person's perspective, bonding with the student, inspiring them, and building relationships with my colleagues. After the event, the employees went to a local restaurant and took the opportunity to discuss our backgrounds, work experiences, and what we did with our student that day. It was just a really great day - reminding YESNET members of how much fun science can be, helping us bring that positive attitude and the relationships we built back to the workplace
