I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Wide variety of world class products to work on. Career advancement, entry level opportunities, different geographic relocation potential, international growth, work flexibility, incentive plan, world class employee benefits. Balance between commercial aircraft, defense platforms and programs, space and satellites business base. Diverse workforce and leadership open to wide variety of idea and approaches. Ethical and financially conservative leadership.

Cons

It is easy to work too hard as you never run out of interesting challenges. Stock price seems to only follow the Commercial Aircraft side.

Advice to Management

Keep funding pensions; increase dividends.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Boeing is a great company with good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth and they never fire employees that can't do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the management ranks by 40% and use that money to hire enough "real" engineers to do the work. Stop hiring people without the degree from an approved school and calling them an engineer. I really don't like all the ex-production people in the office.

    Cosmopolitan workforce, but elitist management and lacking in corporate governance.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    BCAG has the most cosmopolitan work force of any aerospace company in the US; the world is well represented by the workforce. It also has a very high concentration of very bright people. The Seattle area has to be the most beautiful of any major city in the country. It is a well-organized operation with a strong emphasis on process.

    Cons

    The commercial airplanes division has one of the nastiest corporate cultures of the industry and within Boeing. There is no real sense of teamwork, competition is cut-throat, and work hours are long. The long hours and demands on employees to be available to respond outside of work do not make for much of a life outside the workplace. There is also a very strong bias toward young employees and a high degree of social stratification among the engineers. The worst part of BCAG is its elitist management, which is generally condescending and arrogant toward the employee. There is very poor interaction between the employees and management, except for the intense competition among employees for recognition which is how management stays in control; it is only their power to reward that engenders loyalty. Boeing is generally good for corporate governance, but it has no teeth to it in Everett. Also, the company has installed an RFID system to track employee movements with their badges. This is a management that regards its employees with contempt. Because the management doesn't like to submit to any restraints on its conduct, I can see this division of this company getting into trouble down the road.

    Advice to Management

    Your management at the commercial airplanes part of Boeing are, simply put, a bunch of arrogant narcisstic thoroughbreds who care naught about what the employee thinks. While much of your workforce is reminiscent of the high-tech industry, your management is more reminiscent of the 1920s. It needs a more open, accessible, professional management that genuinely cares about all the employees, without prejudice. If Robert Noyce of Intel could work out of cube like his other engineers, why do the BCAG managers have to be so elitist? Where's the profitability in that?
