It's possible to have a very good career at Boeing. Several good people but also a handful of weak-spots in management.

Pros

Benefits were above average. In Chicago, they have a very good cafeteria onsite. Also have a nice gym in the building. The products and industry are interesting and the company is a market leader. The company is profitable, even in down years.

Cons

Advancement opportunities are more limited in Chicago, since none of the operations are in the area. Geographic flexibility (willingness to relocate to St. Louis or Seattle) will aid career progression.

Advice to Management

The CEO is too insulated from the employees. He has a private elevator, etc. Obviously there are security needs but he seemed detached. Perhaps this is why he didn't have an accurate understanding when crucial programs (787) fell behind schedule, despite his insistence to the contrary. Either the CEO was not aware, or was not being transparent, neither of which reflects well.

    Young in business should avoid Boeing, unless you have a passion for Aerospace & Defense

    Pros

    Job security (especially if you're young), good starting pay (for entry level), company is well known and has great benefits - health insurance and tuition reimbursement easily adds at least $10K to your salary. Relocation benefits. If you want a job where you put in decent work, good time (pretty easy to stick to 40 hours/week), you can retire here. Boeing makes it relatively easy for you - if you're more motivated than the average employee there - to switch roles and do different things.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and slow processes: can take 3+ months just to order needed software. Company almost always feels slow to young people. Need an approval to get anything done. Average age at Boeing is 50+, this is a pro AND a con: it lends to a slow-moving, old-thinking environment. BUT, right now there's room for "fast" advancement because so many people are eligible for retirement. I don't blame the older employees who are just bidding there time and coasting by until retirement.
