  1. Software Configuration Management

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Boeing (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great, the facilities are great and they breed the type of colleagues that are willing to pass on experience. Management is very helpful in guiding you through your career.

    Cons

    If you get to the top of the ladder, they are willing to lay you off and replace you with a fresh out of collage person.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the older experienced people and glean their knowledge for as long as you can. It's what built the company and made it what it is today.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Potential large company stability with many cross-training opportunities, has provided health/401k/pension benefits that have been historically better than most other companies, Howard Hughes legacy knowledge base, historically competitive, world leader in commercial satellite design and production.

    Cons

    Not making the changes necessary to remain competitive, recent large layoff announcement, too much emphasis on process, would benefit by increasing transparency and open culture, less attractive to new employees due to elimination of pension and other benefits.

    Advice to Management

    More creative strategizing to win contracts are needed. Find other ways to improve bottom line without eliminating senior engineering skill sets to dangerous levels. Return back to the Hughes legacy of only permitting seasoned engineering leadership to hold top level executive positions.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    GREAT benefits Great product and sense pride in the company Opportunities to travel with the company and see various Boeing sites and geographic locations

    Cons

    The least diverse company I've ever seen- management preaches diversity and may even attempt to go after it, but has no idea how to tackle inclusion Bureaucratic and very unempowering Inconsistent application of policies across the company- how you get promoted in one group is completely different than how you get promoted in another The furthest thing from a "performance culture" like GE... leaves a lot of deadweight around

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

    Pros

    They are a large company with different locations to work throughout USA. They off good benefits and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    They do not win enough contracts to make the company stable. Constant layoffs especially higher grade positions. They are cutting a lot of the good benefits they used to offer.

    Advice to Management

    If the workers do not feel valued or appreciated they WILL find another company to work for.

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

    Pros

    I just started working here and I'm already a big fan. The company culture is great and everyone has been very helpful.

    Cons

    The vacation days are not as good as my last job, but the variety of work and compensation make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to accept "soft skills" as experience. I work with many younger employees that have great soft skills but are paid too little for what they do.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great people -Career Development opportunities -Fair Pay -Tuition assistance program -Management (I'm fortunate enough to work under a very fair manager. I've come to find that seems to be the norm at my site, but may not be that same at others.) -Decent Health Insurance options -Christmas Vacation (over a week long)

    Cons

    There is constant movement within the organization. This doesn't have to be a Con though, flexibility and a good attitude will help you succeed at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on your teams....a happy team=more productivity=more revenue!
