    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible time off, decent standard benefits but upper management are looking for ways to cut cost on it. Great education benefits, almost free depending on what you want to study.

    Cons

    Promotions ae getting harder to get, company cutting cost by reducing benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You'll lose young talented workers if you cant retain them. Employee morale is dropping due to drastic cost cutting.

    Pros

    Great company with talented employees that go all out to build safe airplanes.

    Cons

    Supply chain is spread all over the world so procurement constantly needs to be managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shutdown the South Carolina cluster and move the work back to Everett where they know how to build airplanes.

    Competitive salary, matched 401K, incentive bonuses, cash awards for performance and great benefits package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold to the Boeing values. This is the greatest aerospace company in the world for a reason.

    I worked at Boeing full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A variety of positions and projects to move to if you don't like the present position that you are in

    Cons

    Need to move around the company to advance, meaning different sites, states, etc. there are mang and execs that start a project but always plan to move on to other projects to advance, and make decisions that are good for their advancement but not for the project, causing issues after they are long gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to consider ideas from the engineering ranks, sometimes only follow ideas that come from the top
