I have been working at Boeing

Pros

The products Boeing builds are pretty cool and almost everyone in the world has heard of the company .

Boeing's learning together program pays for 100% of any accredited educational program you would like to take. Even if the program has nothing to do with your job, i.e. engineers can enroll in culinary school and Boeing will pay for it.

Also the opportunities to travel and for international assignments are always available.

Cons

It's a giant bureaucracy and if you think you can change it by yourself you'll be a very frustrated every day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rearranging executives every six months isn't going to get the product out the door any faster.

    Pros

    Great education benefits, room enough to create your own job in some areas

    Cons

    Delays in the 787 program we predictable and caused by the supplier management paradigm put in place. Responsibilities for integration were not defined and management resisted efforts to define them clearly early in the program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Program managers need to be held accountable for how their work is integrated to the total airplane system

    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    Good pay, and very good benefits package. Company provides and encourages continual training in current jobs and future jobs and interests.
     They also have paid continuing education all the way thru Doctorates. Most all expenses are covered and usually the class load isn't restricted except when it interfers with work load and job deadlines. Most managers will work with the employee to balance work and school schedules.
     Inhouse prmototions and upward mobility are encouraged. Opportunities for advancement open up all the time and employees are almost pushed to try out for these openings. Most managers are open to helping employees who want to advance get opportunities to show what they and get training and menitoring for their weak areas.

    Cons

    Long hours occur when deadlines are approached and special projects come up. Getting out of them usually isn't a option.
     Office politics in some groups can really get extreme and stressful.Most groups aren't bad but a few that do can make it a hell on earth place to try and work. The managers seem to ignore the back stabing.
     The requiremnt to be 'PC' at all times can be a drag. Boeing comes on strong in tihis are due to previous law suits and Federal investigations. Because of the worldwide sales and work force(Boeing and onsite vendor/customers), language problems abound. It makes working with others a headaches at times. Listening with an open mind is a must. And being careful what and how you say is a full time job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the rank and file as they know what is happening on the floor and don't put so much confidence in the options of outsiders.
