El Segundo has a variety of Fortune 500 and Defense companies, El Segundo has a terrific School system with two elementary schools , an Intermediate school and a High School. El Segundo is a safe community, great for families. It's close to the communities of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach, some of the nicest beaches and expensive communities in the LA area.
Some other great cities close by include Torrance, some areas of Hawthorne are nice, Westchester. I was also born and raised in Torrance and can concur that it has great schools and nice safe neighborhoods. Please feel free to contact me I would be happy to provide you with more information.
If you plan on staying in the area you might consider buying if you have enough saved for a down payment. If you don't have enough for a down payment, or would like to live in the area awhile before buying, then you could also consider looking for a less expensive rental to help you save for a down payment.
Good luck, and if you would like more help, feel free to contact me.
