Pros

After 9 years, beats Walmart

Cons

Many have seen the loss of 401 matching, no sick days, double the cost of insurance and co-pay, loss if incentive program, all so the company can turn around and give the money saved to Seattle, who managed to lose so much money on the 777.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of the office and look around.

    Pros

    The benefits are really great, but they have continued to make the employee pay for more of them each year.

    Cons

    Terrible management(too many chiefs, not enough Indians). They have definitely made it known that they want to cut costs by any means necessary (including laying off older workers just cause they are level 4 or 5). They continue to amaze me that they even function at all. My main job is to write software, and yet, I have to fight to use tools and best practices. Boeing also refuses to pay for quality software developers, or hire new engineers when they desperately need them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to do software, do what the best software companies do, hire every engineer you can, invest in your engineers, and use the best tools and practices that have proven to increase quality and reduce cost.

    Pros

    Depending on what part of the country you're in, being part of the SPEEA union is a double edged sword. It's good in that your hours are really set. It's tough to go beyond 40 hours, b/c they have to pay you extra. But it's bad in that a lot of older engineers are just lazy.

    Other Pros:
    +Great Benefits
    +Continuing Education is paid for, depending upon what you study
    +Looks Good on the Resume
    +Only really good if you want a steady paycheck and minimal responsibility

    Cons

    +Company is way too Big
    +Silo-ed into 1 little, task
    +Limited opportunity to break out of your little job
    +Raises are not there
    +Limited growth
    +No mental challenges, besides politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The unions will cause Boeing to end up like the Detroit Auto companies. Give raises and level bumps based on merit, not seniority.
