    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    Great benefits, the Learning Together program pays for 100% of college courses up front, not reimbursement.

    Cons

    Advancement is a little difficult, the defense industry is cyclical. When times are good they're good but that doesn't last forever.

    I worked at Boeing (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits,pension and discounts on services.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than market rate, it's really hard to move up the ladder un-less you network consistently, there are at sometimes too may layers of management that is constantly changing almost yearly making it difficult to advance.

    There is s not as much job security as there use to be seeing as they are finding cheaper labor by spreading the work around globally. Currently, there is a lot of seasoned employee's on the brink of retirement and management has done nothing about insuring that the knowledge is or will be passed on.

    Schedule used to be key for a long time, now cost is the main factor, which will ultimately effect quality, which increase's re-work under pressure by more experienced employee's after delivery for assembly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more opportunity's for internal advances, there are so many layers and other factors involved that many qualified or in some cases over qualified internal candidates are being over looked.

    The constant churn of experienced employee's leaving due to RIF activities based on cost savings and lack of internal opportunities will catch up. Cheaper labor is not the answer for longevity.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, interesting subject matter. Good medical benefits. Able to work four ten hour shifts. Great holiday vacation, 20 day + first year.

    Cons

    Forced relocation. Employees has to re apply for their current job with only 10 percent getting to keep their current position.
    Leadership did not care about people just their hidden agenda.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the people you have.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    -The none management personnel are a pleasure to be around but morale seems to be low
    -Have a chance to work on products that are redefining air travel
    -Needed shift in company culture is underway

    Cons

    -The office politics and career growth are challenging
    -Surprised by the amount of turn over with new hires. Didn't expect that it would be such a revolving door for an for such a well established aerospace company
    -Benefits are changing drastically in 2016
    -Morale seems to be quite low
    -Don't expect leadership training...you'll have to focus on that on your own

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes in company culture are a good thing, but just focusing on refreshing non-management team when the management team needs an over haul as well sends the wrong message

    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    Benefits, sick leave, 401K, medical
    Opportunities throughout the company
    Work life balance

    Cons

    Incompetent managers due to lack of training and poor selection process. Many layer of management that generate lack of accountability and extremely slow in adapting and changing.
    Conservative, while male culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a great need to focus on employee development. Managers need more training, learn to adapt and change to keep pace with a younger workforce and its values. Need to stay in touch with modern management styles to motivate employees.

    Current Employee - Assembly Mechanic in Everett, WA

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are better than most jobs you'll find.

    It's pretty cool working in/on/around airplanes, you'll find yourself in awe of the things happening around you on a pretty regular basis.

    Cons

    Benefits are getting worse, mostly in regards to health care but there are rumors that several other programs (like the college tuition program) are soon to disappear.

    There is not many good opportunities for autonomy at Boeing. It's a big company and therefore mostly asks you to fall in line, if you do not you will likely find it hard to get by as time passes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to connect with employees. Take the time to talk candidly with employees in person, you are often being misled by middle management due to a focus on deadlines and status. Those items are important, but it often feels like something very important is being lost in the current lines of communication.

    Pros

    Good company for those looking for job stability

    Cons

    Extremely risk averse company. The risk aversion that appropriately applies to flight critical systems/products has permeated to include even small actions that happens within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand trust in your employees by providing greater responsibility, freedom, and fewer hoops to jump through.

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people that are very down to earth that I enjoyed working with.

    Cons

    You will work just as hard as you would anywhere else but not receive the salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become competitive with the other local Fortune 500 Companies in the area of salaries.
