    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

    Good benefits. stability in key positions. Unique opportunity to work with top of the line products

    Cons

    legacy everywhere! Very old technology. Stifled R&D. Inability to hold young talent

    Advice to Management

    Needs to focus on creative new solutions instead of rehashing old ideas

    Pros

    Fair pay for the area. Work location is ideal. Lots or PTO and sick leave. Very diverse work force.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management and executive over site is non-existent. Because of poor management, you are expected to work several weekends in a row to keep up with an ever increasing rate.

    Advice to Management

    Let the production line "pull" its self along and not the schedule pushing it from the back,

    Pros

    Boeing offers a decent wage, good "traditional" benefits (medical, dental, vision), generous educational benefits, and potentially opportunities to move up/move around.

    Cons

    I've worked at a handful of companies before coming to Boeing and I have to say I've never encountered such terrible, terrible management in my life. Things you would think, especially in this day and age, would be considered an HR nightmare have been common place. I've had an opportunity to chat with a lot of fellow employees from different groups/programs/divisions and compare notes and I'll admit my experience is not "the norm," but it is sadly not as rare as one would hope. Ultimately, it's really a crap shoot as to what group you land in and what type of management you get when you're hired. Additionally, the company overall has a very "traditional" (translation, outdated) way of thinking which can be super frustrating and shows in their high rate of turnover rate of 0-5yr employees.

    Pros

    none that I can think of

    Cons

    don't practice what they preach too many layers of managers that don't do anything, just a number there not a person, lazy long time employees who don't like change, unfriendly culture, no team work, I could go on an on

    Advice to Management

    get rid of 75% of the layers of management and supervision you have and you'd save money as well as getting rid of the the long time employees who don't work and bilk you for every bit of money they can

    Pros

    Good compensation, Great benefits. Work life balance is great.

    Cons

    Taskes a long time to move up. Raises are small and seemingly non-performance dependent. Salaries are based on a formula/computer system.

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of opportunities both in working experiences and in training. Great place to start your career.

    Cons

    Large company, progress/pace can be slow. However this is very common in many large companies. In general, not many disadvantages.

    Advice to Management

    Focus/listen to your young employees but do not let go of the key factors that made Boeing as great as it has become.
