    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

    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    Products are the best in the world - engineering talent is world-class. Office culture while not perfect has improved greatly over the past 10 years. Benefits are above average and there are several perks in working for a leading branded corporation. Compensation is solid.

    Cons

    Cons are poor training in most areas - annual raises are poor - and older workers who have tons of knowledge and skills are not valued as much as they should be. The average age of the work force skews way above average, so they are trying to get rid of many very valuable older workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't throw away the tribal knowledge that has kept the company strong despite numerous layoffs and re-organizations. It is because of us that the company is earning record profits.

    Pros

    An amazing product and technology. Whatever you want to do you'll find it here at Boeing.

    Cons

    Executive management infighting. Most of the decisions made are based on fear and getting the next promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start promoting people who are leaders into management. Drive a culture of teamwork and inclusion.

    I worked at Boeing

    Pros

    Benefits are good for a family and work life balance can be fair

    Cons

    Salaried Employees and Engineering Union received about 30% less on the Employee Incentive Plan (EIP) Bonus this year compared to the last 4 years even though company had record profits. EX; 2013 17 days pay/ 2014 12.5 days pay (about 4.5%. Managers dependent on level 1, 2 or 3 received 12-18% bonus. Explanation from leadership was items like Tanker Charge, Late Plan Deliveries etc. but these were leadership decisions that caused issues. Benefits are shrinking every year. No more pension after 2015 even for current workforce.
     Do not care about people and believe all are plug and play. Do not value ideas other than like theirs. Very old school and hard to get anything done.
     Poor planning and budgeting so a constant fire drill

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees, Listen to their ideas even as they may be different than yours and not the status quo. Pick fewer projects and actually accomplish them instead of taking on way too much and finishing little. Plan
