It is a male dominated industry as a whole, not just at Raytheon, but we are working to make things better, always trying to hire and retain women. We also have a Woman Employee Resource Group with many women having strong backgrounds, PhD's, etc.

    Some roles do have less flexibility (to work remote) because of the nature of the Classified work which should be done in a secure office setting. But most groups don't care when you come in or leave as long as you put in your hours and get your work completed.

    Raytheon is working on promoting more women into leadership positions, there just tends to be much less women wanting to go into defense, but the opportunities are there! Work life balance is great with having every other Friday off! Compensation could be improved, but there is more than just salary.

Alpha male dominant covertly abusive fear-based culture where micro-aggression, neglect, lack of public acknowledgement or even acknowledgement to your face for stellar performance, and silence are used to keep you in your place and leave you feeling diminished but are done in a way that leaves no way to prove the abuse.

You have to be your own advocate and push for what you want out of your career. They are happy to have you go along with the flow if you don't ask for anything different.

    Although flexibility is allowed, it is not yet encouraged. They are piloting a program to change the culture about flexible work schedules and working from home, but the effects are yet to be implemented or realized.

Although the aerospace and defense industry continues to struggle with diversity and inclusion, Raytheon has recently devoted increased resources to addressing the need to attract and retain more women.

Still some objectifying of women in the workplace, and "old-school" managers make flexibility really tough.

All of the people who are fast-tracked (e.g. promoted every two years after having started as an E1) are men. I don't know of a single woman who has been fast-tracked. The vast, vast majority of E44s and E88s are men. In the area where I sit, only four women have offices (i.e. only four women are an E5 or an E6) whereas at least 23 men do. The vast majority of women where I sit have been mommy-tracked. Nepotism is absolutely rampant. Most of the people I work with are related to someone else who works at the company. If you are the child of someone important or some higher-up is a family friend, you will get special treatment.
