    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in Huntington Beach, CA

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

    Pros

    Vacation and sick leave time

    Cons

    Senior R&D VP's and directors whimsical ideas and hanger queens like Phantom Ray, Echo Ranger, etc gobble up funding that could be spent pursuing products of real value to the DoD and intelligence community. Many of the existing long term programs are completely hollowed out technically, but no one will find out until the need for a redesign or a design update. After 35+ years (12 at Boeing) managing many very innovative programs for DARPA / DoD, NRO, etc, I was never in a position where so many things depended on stroking the ego of the VP or Director of a division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive management needs to put their huge egos aside and accept that many others have great ideas worth pursuing.

    Pros

    Good experience working on a variety of jobs with a variety of experts. Best products in the world produced at Boeing and employees are proud of this.

    Cons

    Benefits, especially vacation, appear to be less than other companies. Salaries, in some sectors, seem to be a bit lower than other places but not bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to employees - this is important and appreciated.
