I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than a year

Pros

Light Workload
Low Expecations
Nice Christmas Break
"Experienced" work force
Work-Life Balance
Pay for OT

Cons

Uncompetitive Compensation
Slow Career Advancement
Culture of Mediocrity
Unhappy atmosphere
Bureaucratic system bogs down all decision making
Contempt between labor forces; Engineering vs. Mechanics vs. Business Professionals

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The culture should encourage employees to excel at their positions and be excited to work for an aerospace innovator, not demoralize and belittle them into believing that they don't deserve any better. The culture of "Rules and Processes" before "Innovative Approaches and Personal Excellence" has cost the company most of their young, bright minds, and will continue to hamper the company until changes are made. Most young Engineers and Business Professionals I know in the company want to leave.

    Current Employee - Engineering Manager  in  Ridley Park, PA
    Current Employee - Engineering Manager in Ridley Park, PA

    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good Health Benefits, 401K 75 Percent match on first 8% employee contribution, Fair pay, Retirement plan for those who were hired before benefit was removed.

    Cons

    Boeing Ridley Park Philadelphia PA has some real problems with people behaviors. Very rude gritty attitude. The most Sr Executive Management VP running the place uses fear tactics on the H47 Chinook Program to drive productivity driving low morale. Lousy office building, leaky roof, filthily bathrooms, dirty carpets, Coal dust from PECO coal plant next door. Being a Manager is worst position in the place.When the economy gets better and if I have an option,I will leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to change out Philadelphia Site Executive VP Manager LC . Fix the Office areas on river side of the complex. Treat lower levels of management with respect, and respect will flow and change the culture. Make it wort it to be a Manager, today you can make more money as a worker.
