    Boeing is a global company offering exciting opportunities for new employees.

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Huntington Beach, CA

    ProsBoeing is consistent with offering industry leading benefits and opportunities for all employees. Compensation and benefits package is among the best in the industry. Employees have the flexibility to enjoy a healthy work life balance.

    ConsWith older employees waiting to retire human resources should look at offering alternative work arrangements. Management to employee ratio needs to be addressed, very difficult to manage and lead effectively if your span of control is too large.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore focus on career development opportunities for younger employees.

    Opportunities to gain varied experience and incremental career growth

    Lead Engineer (Current Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsGood benefits, good work life balance, plenty of opportunities to try new or varied work experiences. There are opportunities to move to new locations. Many development programs, classes, and formal education. Can switch between a commercial job or defense industry job.

    ConsCareer growth can be measured by years of experience vs individual impact. Engineers carry much of the load for support functions. Work can be stove-piped to a degree due to the nature of defense contracts.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Business Operations Specialist

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRange of work within the field can differ dramatically from being a person who statuses charts for mgt to statement of work control.

    SOW control can be high stress
    other duties can be incredibly light.

    ConsThe parity within the job code can seem unfair. Some duties are incredibly high stress and make it worth the money whereas others are incredibly light.

    Facilities in auburn for office staff need attention and are not modern. Promotion opportunities can be limited after you reach certain "levels".

    Good work/life balance with rewarding work but too much bureaucracy.

    Programmer/Analyst II (Current Employee)
    Bellevue, WA

    ProsEnjoyable work. Only 40 hours a week. Decent benefits. Free college. Easy to move to another position if you don't like the one you're in.

    ConsToo much bureaucracy. Out of touch upper management. Employees seen as expendable with too many lay-offs and major shuffling of work to cities without clear communication of what exactly is happening. This has led to low morale. Slow to implement new tools and technology. Pay is okay but not that competitive for tech sector

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat us like replaceable widgets that can be swapped out at will with a minimum of training for the replacements.
