    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    Good, stable company. It offers good, but not great, benefits and a comparable salary for the industry. I love the union, it eliminates the problems of bad managers, favoritism and establishes a process and procedure that provides a good sense of responsibility for both employee and employer. Best part is that if you want to stay, the company will be there until you leave...in 5 or 45 years, in spite of the lackluster leadership.

    Cons

    Managers are generally from the work crews, meaning that most have no formal training on managing people. Some are really good, but most struggle and are stressed. There is a disconnect between the work force and leadership and a lack of trust on both sides. The upper leadership is truly horrible and so intent on their agendas that white and blue collar both need to be careful. No respect from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget trying to break the workforce and actually work with us to grow the company, improve quality, production, safety and profits.

    Former Employee - Information Technology Engineer in Bellevue, WA

    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had a great 30 year career with excellent pay, benefits, and colleagues. Challenging work, well respected and treated professionally.

    Cons

    The Executive leadership is squeezing pay & benefits from its employees and scooping it up for themselves in bonuses and targeted incentives. Morale is in the toilet as employees no longer feel engaged and valued. Pay is dropping and the senior employees being forced out. I chose to retire because it's no longer fulfilling to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should flee. Board of Directors should recognize the short-term propping of stock and boost the over-aged (by policy) CEO out the door. Turn it around and show employees incentives to stay and college hires reasons to join.

    I worked at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, interesting work, and probably couldn't get fired even if you tried.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Stagnant direct managers don't communicate well. Overall it's a good place to get experience, just don't think that there are going to be any promotions for you inside the company. Take what you can and move on if you want to grow your career.

    I worked at Boeing

    Pros

    I worked there for 30 years, they were very good to me and my family, the best benefits you could get. However, those days are over as well as good benifits with most companies. they treated us well.

    Cons

    Way too much "process" and "corporate initiatives" focus by management. Spent so much time going to meetings, training etc, had little time for real work producing a benefit for my customers. Good work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not constantly threaten ALL employees with potential layoffs.

    Former Employee - Business Analyst Intern in Bellevue, WA

    I worked at Boeing

    Pros

    I was assigned into a great team where I was given a lot of work to do. By the end of the internship, I had taken over the full analyst role, which was nice because I got a great opportunity to have an experience similar to a full-time employee. Additionally, work life balance is great with this company, and the benefits/pay was pretty good for an intern. Lastly, Seattle was a great place to be in the summer.

    Cons

    I heard the work experience really depends on the group you end up with. I had a great manager, so I got a lot of work, but some friends of mine had bad experiences because they did not get have as much responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide a lot of responsibility to interns who show that they can handle it!
