Women's Job Satisfaction (5=very satisfied)
Review User Image

January 1970

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.

    Maybe. There aren't many other women, but work-wise women in engineering are treated equally to men. Probably paid less though. But benefits are good. Not much advancement after motherhood.

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.

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 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.

The company is making a concerted effort to overcome the old male dominated defense industry reputation. They are focused on diversity and inclusion.

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.
