Great company.

Anonymous Rater

Minimal effort to pursue sexual harassment complaints. HR's investigators are there to protect the company, not the individuals. Retribution is rife and HR does nothing to punish it or punish the managers who tolerate it and cover it up - or in many cases, who are the source of it. They tell you to get in the practice of keeping journals, but contemporaneous entries of incidents 'have no evidentiary validity' in their view. Even email documentation is often ignored or explained away. A witness to an incident is almost useless as they then demand a second witness. If anything is ever done, it is only a reprimand, leaving the victim still subject to the power of a now-angry and vengeful manager. And since these reprimands are confidential, other workers are never made aware of them and have the impression nothing is done in these cases, which encourages further harassment by other workers.

For having so many females in key positions, the company simple isn't taking this seriously.

Very Unsatisfied Rater

It can be hard to get lactating rooms.
Telecommuting might. It be possible depending on if you work on something where security concerns don’t allow it.
The company doesn’t have its own daycare.
Very little representation of women in executive leadership.
Still lots of gender bias in the culture.
Company wants to change for the better, so that’s a good sign. Lots of programs to help grow female high potentials into leaders.

Indifferent Rater

Experiences here largely depend on which project you're on, but the defense industry remains largely a boys club. Even on a project that stressed the importance of teamwork and open doors, female engineers seemed to be passed over when it came to employee review time.

Unsatisfied Rater
Early Career

Women are offered little opportunity beyond basic management levels. I have seen them actively bullied by make counterparts and when this was brought up in hr they went after the bullied women instead of the men doing the billing
