Current Employee - Systems Engineer III in Kent, WA

I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

such a large company that they're bound to be doing something I find interesting, benefits package are superior (even without union representation), opportunities to actually use what i learned in school, international and domestic travel

Cons

such a large company it's easy to get lost with the rest of the cogs in the machine

Advice to ManagementAdvice

learn to keep your younger employees engaged and interested, if you're trying to 'hide' certain employees make sure they're not just pushing paper around, appreciate the degree i spent time in getting since that's what you hired me for

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

    Pros

    If you are a union-represented engineer: good benefits and opportunities to get some technical training. Potential for flexible work schedules which is great for people caring for young children or elderly parents. Still some opportunity to move around the company to gain more experience instead of having to move to a completely different company but those opportunities are shrinking. The opportunity to work with some very smart people.

    Cons

    Restrictive skill/job codes that limit movement which used to be a major benefit. Increasingly difficult to move to the next pay scale. Too many levels of management and frequent re-organizations which impacts productivity. Depending on the organization, you can be transferred as often as annually to different sites all over the Puget Sound which makes it difficult to maintain carpools and vanpools, so commuting can be a significant issue. Big company politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of the value your experienced employees bring to the company.
