    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

    My colleagues were great people and I had a lot of fun. The benefits that come with working with the company are amazing.

    Cons

    Even though the pay isn't the best, the benefits are great. I didn't have the best assignment compared to some other interns.

    Pros

    It was, and probably still is, a great place to work.

    Cons

    If you don't like working for a large corporation then this would not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating employees fairly.

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

    Pros

    Boeing used to be a great place to work. This changed when Boeing decided to purchase a smaller company and roll the Intelligence and Security Division Boeing employees under the small company. Benefits are exceptional. The people are very intelligent and care about the customer mission.

    Cons

    Small customer program experience can't and doesn't effectively translate to large integrator mindsets. The firm is losing good people due to the changes.

    Advice to Management

    Remove negative stakeholders. If you really cared about the employee surveys, then you would undertake more than remedial cover-your-backside action.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great collection of sharp minds and a culture that encourages growth and sharing knowledge. The Chinook Program still has exciting projects and great teams. The enterprise is vast, so you can move to a new program and remain under the company umbrella.

    Cons

    It is a big company, so things move slow, from a corporate ladder perspective. Also, the current performance evaluation structure rates employees compared to other employees; somebody is always rated the worst. This translates to this scenario: an entire team can all equally contribute, but 20 percent has to be rated great, 60 percent rated average, 20 percent are rated below average.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate workers individually, not compared to each other and placed in 20-60-20 groups.

    Pros

    Good benefits, future growth, growing aerospace market.

    Cons

    Work life balance not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Negotiate your starting salary.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stable, decent benefits (thought they have declined in recent years) Excellent schedule flexibility depending on work group Virtual 1-2 days a week Decent pay 40 hour week - no mandatory overtime, or if there is you are paid for it.

    Cons

    The culture sucks. There is literally NO socialization at Boeing. No one ever does anything together, and a large majority of the workforce doesn't bother to go to work social events (Even when they are PAID EVENTS) "Hurry up and wait" is the norm. Age of the workforce is 50+ on average. Sucks for younger people Motivated, determined individuals are compensated identically as people that do nothing People that do nothing dont get fired or laid off in most cases Probably 50% of the population actually works. The rest fiddle fart around all day.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to fire people that are poor performers, and/or reward people that are good performers.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Although I was new to the company, I felt like my opinions were valued as soon as I started here. Boeing has a huge emphasis on safety and employee well being, and I've never been happier at a job. Plus, the work is meaningful and significant. I'm proud to work here.

    Cons

    Boeing is a big company, which can slow things down a bit. Change is definitely valued here, but it can be cumbersome to implement it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your employees' opinions.


  11. Boeing SC is not equal to Boeing as a whole

    Pros

    Boeing as a whole is a great company to work for. Great benefits, family oriented, building a product to be proud of.

    Cons

    The SC plant hired many managers who do not carry the Boeing values. Workers are undervalued, treated poorly and not given opprotunities they are given at other sites.

    Advice to Management

    Break back poorly employee reviewed management and promote those that carry the Boeing value of people first, not #'s and output first.
