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

    Pros

    Free education lots of opportunity. There is always a place where Boeing is hiring and you literally can do whatever you want. Our current CEO started as a engineer at Renton.

    Cons

    Big cooperate feel and nothing really happens unless you hover over it until you see it completed

    Advice to Management

    Promote the ones who want to work and improve themselves

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

    Pros

    Boeing is a good place to work that builds amazing products. If you love aerospace or technology it's a place to be from a product perspective.

    Cons

    Culture is changing but at a slower pace. Can be frustrating because most of the time people are not looking for the best solution but a solution that maintains their job. People don't realize they can work on better projects if they simplified their processes.

    Advice to Management

    Need a better way to promote high performers and leverage existing resources to improve their ability to compete in the marketplace.

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

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Boeing is the benefits package. 401K matching up to 6%, good medical, a pension plan still. Its such a huge company you can go basically anywhere and find some unique challenge. Working around airplanes is just so much fun.

    Cons

    The culture is very odd. You have a highly bureaucratic system that highly reduces the effectiveness of efforts to modernize and create efficiencies. The relation between management and unions (both technical and labor) is antagonistic. The unions wants to maintain the same level of benefits and the management wants to ensure we remain a competitive business. Due to this they both speak hyperbolically and create a nasty environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to work with the professional unions to better address folks with performance problems. Currently it is easier to keep transferring someone around than it is to let someone go.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Great environment, great people and great program. Managers are great and understanding. Works are stressful but rewarded. Overall, it's great.

    Cons

    Not so much to mention, only the interview process took very long time. It took forever since you applied, but when the interview is in progress, it moves really quick.

    I worked at Boeing (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great people to work with, opportunities to transfer within company

    Cons

    reorgs can devalue employees, as managers don't always know what people do.

    Pros

    Good diversity of experiences available, with a wide-range of resources to take advantage of.

    Cons

    Must be able to navigate and deal with bureaucracy, including tracking time spent on tasks to the nearest tenth of an hour and participating in annual ethics training expounding on the detriments of using the company printer for personal use.
