    Pros

    I was exposed to many exciting work and career opportunities at Boeing over the years. The people, though, are what make boeing such a great place to work. Best run company I ever worked for (have worked for 10 companies in aerospace, hi-tech, and manufacturing as an engineer). Very enjoyable work atmosphere. Had many group pot-lucks for the holidays. made many friends there. People always go out of their way to help you get your job done. Management very helpful to develop your career and provide other work opportunities to learn other job skills. Flexible work hours, great benefits, great people. Most interesting company culture I was ever exposed to.

    Cons

    Can be very challenging to get your work done on time. Must work hard/develop good time management skills.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for; foremost, Boeing encourages employee contributions as well as the salaries and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    Performance Management System (rating performance levels of management) is antiquated based upon a "Bell Curve" type system. The vast majority of Boeing employees represent QUALITY on every level proven by Boeing Products. Every employee deserves to be rated individually based upon individual achievements and quality of performance rather than one set of limited numbers. Boeing represents Quality as well as their management staff.

    Pros

    Boeing has Flexible hours. Boeing also has good benefits and a solid 401K match. I would definitely recommend to others.

    Cons

    There is a lack of career advancement opportunities. This is probably the nature with any really big company where they pick people out early, and those guys get ahead, and everybody else is stuck in the mud.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see them give more opportunities to younger employees. People shouldn't have to wait 15 years to finally get into management.

    Pros

    Great place to work on advanced technology.

    Cons

    It's a big company- some people don't like that atmosphere. I found here were more resources for doing your job, but if you are looking for a place with free food and monkey bars to climb on during breaks, it's not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Give Tech Fellows a research budget rather than stock. Tech Fellows are motivated by having the freedom to pursue cool ideas.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Boeing is the Number One Aerospace Company in the world. It is a pleasure to work for Boeing doing what I need to do to support and improve the Boeing Company to continue to be the number One in the world.

    Cons

    There are times when Boeing will slow down with its workload ending up reducing its employees. Yet, It is a fact that no matter what happen, all employees should continue to do an honest job and being faithful believing that Boeing Company will continue to be Number One in the world.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to keep on being honest doing what ever is needed to improve the Boeing Company. Do not give up. Be faithful and keep on trusting in God who is your Encourager and Strength during bad times and good times.
