A lot of responsibility given immediately. This is good and bad.

    Pros

    Career opportunities are rich here with plenty of room for advancement. Management is fair and compensation is very fair indeed.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours which sometimes take away from that positive work/life balance that many employers are looking to strengthen these days

    Advice to Management

    Management has been very fair -- it may be nice to offer more praise and recognition to those who excel


  2. Boeing facing hard times, employees feel the heat

    Pros

    It's a large company, which by definition, creates a variety of possible work experiences. For writers who are not strictly IT, there are still many opportunities. Although the vaunted Boeing culture has changed a great deal since Boeing and McDonald Douglas merged in the late 1990s (and the company is less generous, more bureacratic, and less open) Boeing still provides relatively generous benefits (thanks largely to the unions that operate). Payscales have fallen behind the cost of living in Seattle area but is not terribly out of line.

    Cons

    For writers in Company Communicatons (part of Shared Services Group) there is ever-increasing pressure to be fully billable -- at levels that are impossible to sustain. The company has always been plagued by bureacracy, but that problem has grown considerably worse in past 5 years. Management - particularly upper management - creates countless hoops and reporting requirements for first-line managers and their employees. The flow of information - while copious - leaves much to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more honestly, and more directly. Provide answers to the hard questions.
