Most teams only hire 1 woman to satisfy the quota. The women here are very competitive and will not make your job easier. When it' s time for layoffs, the women are the first to go. Work place culture is quite male oriented. I had people told me directly including other women that i don't read/write code even though i have been working at this company for 20 years + as a software engineer. Work is based on projects so you would have to re-apply and go to job interviews for each project. You may not get hired for the next project even though you are already an employee. Managers expect you to work around the clock with no extra pay 50+ hours a week. Raises are 1 to 2% only. I've been on the same level for 13 years without a promotion in sight. This happens to a lot of co-workers, i am not in the only one. Benefits and anything fun are taken away to remain cost-competitive. The only people that the company likes are college graduates. But once you've been there a few years, they'd like to get rid of you.
I worked here for more than 5 years as a Software Engineer. Work-wise, the tasks and expectations were similar compared to my male colleagues, but I got tired of the lack of advancement and/or promotion, even after completing a higher degree. Pay is overall very low (below market value) in Defense industry, but I wouldn't be surprised if I found out my coworkers (males) were making more than me. I ended up not returning after maternity leave (very generous leave policy, I'm thankful that I built up my benefits over the years) because I didn't see much opportunity for growth, career-wise. But it's a good company and there's a high chance to maintain a really good work-life balance and retire there.

I was there for 34+ years. My new boss kept telling me I was being transitioned into a new job. I made plans for my wedding, letting my boss know our agenda. She called me into an office a few days after I got back to work. She said I was laid off, with no chance of recall, and to pack my personal belongings and leave. Of course, I was escorted the entire way and was badly shamed. I'm sure they all thought I was fired. I found out later she did this to at least one other woman. I have never had any trouble in all my years there. I would have done things, especially my wedding. Differently if I knew.
