    I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The break during christmas is the only perk, and thats only if they don't brow beat you into volunteering to come in and work. The pay and other benefits can be found in many other companies in the area. If you want easy, mindless, dull work, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    They use an outdated ordering system that requires you to work in at least 2 other programs where you have to input the exact same info...REDUNDANT! The work is dull and mind numbing, same thing all day, every day. You are basically a data entry clerk. You have some legacy employees that do not take fondly to newcomers or anyone that works faster and better than they do. The older crowd, usually the women, are prone to make anonymous calls into ethics, that are taken quite seriously mind you, for doing things that your coworkers are doing, like using the internet outside of your breaks, which is a BIG ISSUE here, just because you might be more popular or attractive than they are, IM NOT KIDDING. You can and will be fired for any internet use outside of your breaks when ethics receives a report, monitors your computer, and then you get the pleasure of being interrogated and then ultimately fired. They promote a few 'choosen' coworkers and allow them to manage the people they used to work with, which can be a bit unethical seeing how clicky the environment is. You have people that refuse to take on any more work, usually anyone over a level 3, thus making the performing lower level, less paid, take on more. The workloads need to be level loaded! Very poorly managed, or lack thereof. Managers aren't there to manage the people and are only there as a stepping stone to move up and out, and only push out emails while there. I had 6 different managers within my first year here. You seldom end the year with the manager you began the year with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to empower their lower level managers and the employees to do their job. Stop micro managing and focus on the people not the metrics. As morale improves so will your metrics.

    I have been working at Boeing as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Because of Boeing's aging workforce, they are investing heavily in the internship program as well as hiring new college grads. Over the next couple of years, Boeing will be focusing on hiring younger employees across all fields: engineering, IT, business... Apply, apply, apply.

    Cons

    There are so many old people working for Boeing. But I am optimistic that this will change over the next couple of years as Boeing is focusing on hiring younger, newly grads.
