  1. Lots of opportunity to make money within the company, not a lot of diversity of work.

    Pros

    You are able to get a living, family supporting wage that allows you to live comfortably. Historically you can move around, become a boss if you like, or switch disciplines altogether. Pretty much every job here pays well, barring total newbies. You can even switch to different plants across the country/countries but I can't speak for that without having tried it. If you can't swing management you can always go back into the union, at least when layoffs aren't happening. Lots of managers are great here, their general policies are friendlier than your typical machine shop despite the cries of oppression. People will complain even when their job is easy!

    Cons

    A dominant way of thinking among workers is that this is the 'best' job you can ever get. Obviously this isn't true, but for people who aspire to go higher it can be very annoying to be confronted with this every day. A lot of people who may just as well be working a minimum wage job have managed to get into a union and then they are impossible to get rid of. Lots of behavioral issues among workers that aren't going to go away because it is nearly impossible to fire union employees. Not everyone is over payed, but for those that are clearly in over there heads in an area can drag morale down and they just throw these bad apples around the company indefinitely. All part of the culture as a union worker for Boeing. Management is go with the flow or you're out of management. When layoffs come around everyone realizes they made about double what anyone else will pay them for the work they are doing, perhaps less than half. Everyone sells every toy they ever bought simultaneously and gets angry with life that they aren't making 40 bucks an hour anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Really nothing, management is a collective machine. It is huge, it cannot hear my voice.
