    Pros

    Great work environment, best professionals to work with, employee involvement work teams get aircraft production built with quality, safety, cost, schedule, all in a team effort.

    Cons

    Long Beach C-17 Plant Closure has put a lot of well qualified, experienced mechanics and technicians out of work. Sure hope they bring back some production work to Long Beach!

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow all this experience to go to waste, more career job fairs are needed for employees seeking to continue working in the aerospace industry.

    Pros

    Glad they provide contract jobs and I really connected with the interviewing panel.

    Cons

    Plenty of work available, but not many opportunities were extended past the contract work period. And they tend to favor those early in their career path, a plus for entry level type workers, but could be a challenge for experienced professionals. In addition, as a statistical "minority," I sensed and experienced a bit of cultural adversity, while navigating the Boeing culture. Also, there appeared to be an air of anxiety as layoffs are random and roaming and most employees viewed it as a time when managers retaliate against those they are in disagreement with. I personally would not work there again.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others as you want to be treated.

    Pros

    Working on various projects. Started with Mc Donnel Douglas on commercial aircraft,MD80 ,717 ,MD88 . Then Boeing bought us and I started the C-17 program. I love the Aerospace field. It's a passion I've worked for over 29 yrs

    Cons

    Plant closure of Boeing Long Beach after working there for 29 yrs

    Advice to Management

    Managers manage and let the trained professional mech do his job. As little micro management as possible

    Pros

    Benefits were good, great location, diverse employee background, a major aerospace company with one of the largest backlog in business and one of the industry leaders in technology advances.

    Cons

    Because of the government and industry downsizing, the opportunity to be recognized and promoted through the ranks to senior levels is diminishing. Performance ratings for employees is based upon pool of job classifications throughout corporation and not limited to site or division commonality, ie: comparisons of commercial entities with government performers notwithstanding levels of performance vary significantly.

    Advice to Management

    Management has it's concerns. The company levels of management are stacked significantly towards those whom are of a commercial nature, where the bulk of business backlog is in the commercial environment, Boeing executives have done an excellent job in leveling the playing field whereby a decrease in backlog for commercial or government, is sufficiently balanced by the other, minimizing the overall impact to company valuation and stock performance.

    Pros

    Good benefits, vacation, sick pay.

    Cons

    Lack of deserved promotions for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of promoting. It takes an act of congress to receive a promotion.
