    Pros

    Big company, lots of places to grow. Salaries are at industry average, benefits are comparable to other large aerospace companies.

    Cons

    24 years at this company, when I started we were a Tech/Family centric company, your peers, and management, at least up to Director level watched out for each other. Then McDonald Dug. bought us... went from a 5 star company to a 1.5 star company. Paid time off changed, healthcare got expensive, Company retirement went away. Management ethics became a real problem. If your over 50 and work there watch your back Boeing is removing the aging workforce and hiring a younger crew. Good luck going to EEO (Govt) They approved my case showing just cause for a Discrimination case, however no lawyer will touch it because Boeing is "TOO BIG" to fight.

    Advice to Management

    ACTUALLY Live up to those mandatory ethics classes you forced on us to take due to poor ethics on Senior management decisions.

    Pros

    There were not any pros.

    Cons

    Terrible company and management style. The environment is highly sexist and racist. If you are a woman or not a white man, don't expect to move up within the company and don't expect to receive any respect at all. Very much a "good ole boy" attitude. The company harbors bullies. Management generally does not have college degrees. They only care if you are retired military.

    Pros

    Opportunity to gain skills and experience on Boeing systems and procedures to increase qualifications to apply for permanent work within the company.

    Cons

    This is a permanent contract job with no intention of it ever becoming permanent with no access to Boeing benefits.

    Advice to Management

    The large ratio of contract employees to Boeing employees within a single organization is creating a cut throat, back stabbing environment with contractors creating trouble for the Boeing employees.

    Pros

    - Boeing is the most Prestigious Aerospace Company in the World

    - Employees are able to transfer across the Boeing enterprise into different business units particularly in BCA (Commercial Airplanes) and BDS Defense/Space units in California, Texas, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Oklahoma and Florida to build a strong career.

    - Challenging Technical, Engineering, and Management Opportunities available at all levels

    - Stock price is < $150 per share (doubling in the last few years)

    - Excellent Benefits

    Cons

    - Ethical, (Mis)Management, and Business Challenges make Boeing only a short term option (<5 years) for accomplished Engineers and Management Leaders to build a career.

    - The satellite business is in decline and Boeing is being out-engineered by competitors and new entries into the Aerospace Launch Vehicle and Spacecraft/Satellite Markets, like Orbital Sciences and SpaceX.

    - Management is openly hostile to both the Union and Non-Union Workforce from aerospace machinists to senior engineers.

    - Tiered Rates is a cost-savings staffing method to skew the Engineering workforce toward hiring younger and inexperienced engineers and assigning them to challenging satellite programs. This is done at the expense of mid-level and senior engineers who are just discarded after they reach 45-50 years old. Seniority and competence have been weeded out on most programs as undesirable strengths within Engineering.

    - Salaries are constrained to 20-35% below the market for Engineers in Los Angeles, CA. Engineering promotions are 1-2 levels behind (e.g. Px is actually Px-2) for mid-level and experienced Engineers.

    - Corruption is unfortunately widespread across the Boeing Enterprise at every level.

    - Weak/Poor Functional and Executive Management at S&IS is widespread.

    - Boeing Corporate Executive Management does not inspire confidence among employees.

    - Bottom-line: Get 5 years of experience, a Security Clearance, and College Tuition Benefits to get a Masters or MBA, and then leave for greener pastures in better companies.

    Pros

    laid back enviornment, people are nice. You are able to learn on the job and they have a paid program if you want to go back to school for masters.

    Cons

    Not progressive in tech along with lots of legacy systems in use. They dont seem to believe at all in cloud, nor modern api's.

    Advice to Management

    More advancement for employees, cut thr crap on more for less. Also so many managers and leads arent even working leads and are useless.

    Pros

    Closed over the Christmas and new years holiday. That all I can come up with. There are no other good things to say.

    Cons

    Management is are bullies sarcastic and all gossip about their staff. One of the worse places I ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    Go to management school on how to treat all employees fairly and take responsibility for their actions.

    Lousy employee relation. Lousy work ethic. Its all about the profit not about relations.

    Pros

    Great benefits and the hourly employees are great.

    Cons

    Management is required to 'write up' a certain percentage of people within the group they manage. Being written up will lead to being fired. Some employees that have been written up are stellar employees. If they can get written up, then no body is safe. It doesn't matter if you are management or hourly or salary. There are too many procedures to follow. It has been said publicly that there is no possible way that all policies can be followed. Get a clue.

    Advice to Management

    I've Never seen morale so low. I know of 42 employees in the last four months who have left Boeing and these are good employees. Boeing is going down hill but as long as you make the all mighty dollar - who cares right? Rate the managers. There are some great managers; get rid of the bad ones. Once that is done, morale will improve. Some people were never meant to be in management. Many of the hourly are overworked and that is how accidents happen. Make it so mandatory weekends are banned.

    Pros

    If u are liked you will always have your job.

    Cons

    Policies don't apply to all employees only certain ones. Doesn't have a training dept let alone trainers. employees build harnesses different when all harnesses should be build the same. Scary and wonder why planes r falling out of the sky. I won't fly either..

    Advice to Management

    Get new ones with back bones
