    I am an intern, and so far, I'm disappointed

    Project Manager Intern (Current Employee)
    Everett, WA

    ProsThe benefits and pay are both good. It looks great on your resume, and you can do schooling/learn a lot from the company. there is a lot of opportunities to move around if you are in a department that isn't well suited for you.

    ConsThe generation gap is tremendous, nobody is open to change, everything feels outdated, I don't have enough work to keep me busy most days. I also don't agree with the work ethics of some people in my department. I have actually seen some people take naps at their desks... every day.

    Where Bureaucracy Was Invented

    Real Time Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Everett, WA

    ProsOutstanding benefits: competitive salary, medical/dental, vacation/holidays, 401-K with match, profit sharing. Ability to transfer as business needs permit.

    ConsTerrible bureaucracy. Duplicate functions/inconsistent management. Non-performing employees often get a pass. Layoffs occur for reasons other than business setbacks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider breaking this company up. More focus on lowest level management competency. Expedited process for removing non-performing employees. Limit layoffs to true business setback situations.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Work Environment Was Good, Then Regionalization Hit

    Site Services Project Manager (Current Employee)
    El Segundo, CA

    ProsBetter than average salary
    Benefits good, but slipping a bit for new employees
    Ample vacation, with extra time off around Christmas
    Opportunities to advance your career if you are willing to relocate to other states

    ConsOne big silo
    Hidden agendas
    Age discrimination
    Empire building

    Advice to Senior ManagementAudit, audit and audit some more: You would be surprised what an objective person will find
    If you talk the talk, got to walk the walk (Boeing vision and values)
    Someone objective needs to enforce ethics - the locals have assimilated
    Employees need to feel safe to bring up problems and share what isn't working or what is a bad idea. (without retaliation)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
