    I worked at Boeing

    Pros

    My boss was highly motivated and somewhat available for supportive engagement.

    Cons

    Boeing is monolithic. Access to documents and online resources was extremely challenging, particularly as an outside consultant. My direct report was unskilled in her understanding of the importance of Sponsor, Agent, Target and Advocate in her attempts to develop change efforts which significantly undermined my capacity as a Develooment and change consultant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management training is needed. Lower level managers are oftentimes promoted beyond their organizational competency resulting in difficulties in task delegation, agility and change management

    Diversity needed in upper management.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, fair pay, lenient management, flexible hours. Overtime is time + $6.00/hr (pretty good for a salaried position). ~30 days paid sick leave/holiday/vacation a year.

    Cons

    Raises are all shared across your department so your motivation can get sapped pretty quick if you have a lot of slugs in your group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop tethering raises together and punish low level managers that shove their poor performers onto other departments instead of confronting the issue.

    Former Employee - Business Skills Rotation Program in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Boeing as a first job out of college is very structured. There are training classes that all new employees must go through and depending on your field, more specific material.

    After the training period, work is pretty much the same for more matured programs and is low stress.

    Great work life balance, I rarely ever worked more than 40 hours weekly.

    Cons

    Boring and uninspiring. As a new college graduate I thought I could get in and make a difference, but most employees are resilient to change and new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pool new hires into a separate team versus mixing them in with current employees.

    Former Employee - Integrated Scheduling Specialist III in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Boeing

    Pros

    I worked in St. Louis, MO - Benefits were good, although they had dropped tuition reimbursement levels the funded level still allowed for a four course a year load that did not hamper my timeline much. Excellent training program for Integrated Scheduling career path with great mentors to help you along wherever you were in your experience level. I worked on some really exciting projects with limited management oversight yet all the support I needed to be successful. Excellent work-life balance and great atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    Large company with many policies and information was sometimes scattered across several systems making it difficult at times to find what you needed quickly. Overall the systems were integrated where possible to ease this and improvements were always being done. Pay was average but good for the experience and opportunities having worked for Boeing granted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you were doing. Consider raising pay rates to be more near the top of industry norms.
