Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Huntington Beach, CA

I have been working at Boeing full-time

Pros

Excellent vacation/sick leave package. Very flexible about taking time off. Work can be challenging. People usually are friendly and mostly competent. Excellent education opportunities to advance your knowledge.

Cons

Some real dead wood still lingers after multiple layoffs. Real drag to see good people going out the door while slackers remain. It seems that emphasis on superior engineering not as important as making a buck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Needs to realize that superior engineering will generate the profits. Without the best engineering, profits will erode. Reward those with best technical abilities, not necessarily those that celebrate diversity!

    Awesome if job security is your concern, not the most fun/impactful/challenging thing in the world.

    I worked at Boeing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You either have to have an unusually picky manager or be noticeably bad to not be asked back. You have a strong chance of receiving an offer.
    The projects don't seem like life or death situations. They're manageable and as long as you put in a decent amount of effort, that seems to be all that is expected.
    The pay and benefits are great.

    Cons

    The company feels middle-aged and boring.
    It's not particularly challenging and you don't feel as if you're making much impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want young and fresh talent, you have to be appealing to young and fresh people. This is resoundingly not the case.

    Too much management with useless pride and politics

    Former Employee - Supply Chain Specialist in Long Beach, CA

    I worked at Boeing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay, decent benefits, free gym, lots of networking opportunities; decent coworkers.

    Cons

    Management, depending on your group, can be petty, insecure, unprofessional, and go against better business practices just to spite those they don't like - not really a smart way to run things. Also the work can be dull; most people just sit around counting down the clock or napping in their cubicles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually try to learn what it is the people you manage do on a day-to-day basis and don't feel threatened by their experience and skills and try to overcompensate for your ineptitude by spouting off random useless non-facts to "prove" your point.
