"The company offers a “flex-time” work environment for salaried employees, meaning as long as you log your 40 hours in per week you can do it according to your schedule. (I.e: come in an hour or two later in the morning due to child obligations, and then stay the extra hour(s) to account for the late arrival.)"

"If you're planning on having kids or have young children, I wouldn't recommend it. If your kids are older and you don't need as much flexibility, it might work for you."

"There are many options for employment with this employer. You will find it beneficial to be open to relocation."

"It really depends on your role if you want flexible hours. Good networking opportunities for women and professional development if you are considered high potential."

"Overall stable job without crazy hours or overload. Great maternity leave policy. There might not be as much career growth as you want since it's part of the defense industry (I felt like this before having kids). But as a busy mom, it might be just enough to balance life out :)"

"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. "

"It's a good place to work with a good flex time policy. Benefits have significantly decreased over the past 10 years. "
"I work in a smaller part of NGC and have many women, and the head of our area is a woman. I am quite happy here and find that women are treated equally. A coworker took maternity leave recently and did not seem to suffer any informal repercussions."
"It's the Aerospace Industry-- I get to work on some pretty cool projects but the company is very slow to change its ingrained culture and white-male-engineer insider network. On the plus side, I've seen senior leadership kick off serious initiatives to foster women leadership; on the minus, I've seen those initiatives die as senior leaders move on."
"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."
"Satisfaction varies by department. I worked on a military base in a male dominated area of mostly white men who were retired from the military. I was not taken as seriously as my male peers, and had little room for advancement because of this."
"The company is making a concerted effort to overcome the old male dominated defense industry reputation. They are focused on diversity and inclusion."
"I have worked here for almost 10 years and in that time there were only two women supervisors. It is a mans' world. Men are paid more than women even if the woman has the same qualifications. I don't know about maternity leave. If the manager doesn't like you, you won't get a raise nor will you be promoted."
"This company as other Aerospace companies are still the "good old boy" club. The program I am currently on is male dominated and some of these managers makes it very clear they do not like to work with women."
"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."
