  1.  

    Enjoyed that everything was fast paced and challenging

    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I feel that while working at Boeing was the team-attitude and sense of camaraderie.

    Cons

    As I was doing contract work for the company I was very disappointed to be laid-off at the end of my contract.

  2.  

    Quite a good place to work at times, until corporate red tape and accountants get to you.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great programs, great pay & benefits, good work life balance. Engineering staff are a hard-working, good bunch of people for the most part. Nice stable place to work if you get on a long-term program.

    Cons

    Company not run by engineering anymore. Bean Counters rule over all. Company in the midst of a purge of the highly paid, senior people. Benefits are being chipped away at year after year. Healthcare costs slowly rising, meanwhile pension goes away in 2016.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep good employees on-board. Laying off senior engineers in one department while hiring new kids the next department over is a short-term fix at best. All the time and money spent to train experienced employees is being forced out the door.

    More info sharing between programs. One program is struggling for qualified people while others are laying them off. You cannot tell me that somebody could not get the program managers together in a room for mutual benefit??

    Overall, it was good except at times dealing with the Civil Service at EAFB which relegated us as second class citizens.

    Pros

    Challenging and varying responsibilities,

    Cons

    They tend to get rid of you when your a higher paid older in favor of younger and a lot less paid professionals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The plans of the executives are to reduce salary benefits for the workers so they may garner higher wages and compensation for themselves. This will a mistake in the long run because there will be less of an advantage to work in aerospace.
