    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

    If you can get one of the interesting jobs then you will be going to Disneyland everyday!

    Cons

    Making charts for the unnecessary meetings. However, they do pay you the same to do the boring stuff as they do for the fun activities.

    Pros

    Good health benefit.
    Relaxed working environment.
    Friendly co-workers.
    Proud to build something that you and your family could use.

    Cons

    Not really a con but your commute could be time consuming if you live further south and your main work site is up north. The traffic in I-405 is not always ideal.

    Advice to Management

    I like my old manager who is a decent person as an individual. However, the boss of one of my friends is not the best person to deal with so it depends on which team you are working for.

    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

    Diverse opportunities - one can move from defense to commercial businesses, or to enterprise functions. High caliber on product engineering side of business.

    Cons

    Hierarchical, political - takes a long time to make a decision. Little motivation to improve in certain organizations. IT systems are on the legacy side.

    Advice to Management

    Cut layers of non-value add management, focus on results, increase team work by breaking down silos across businesses, establish KPIs for every team so there are clear and known objectives
