    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse workplace with opportunity to develop skills in the IT Technology sector.

    Cons

    Layoffs are a part of life at The Boeing Company and seem to target workers over the age of 55 despite technical knowledge and years of service.

    Advice to Management

    Please value the expertise that the long time Boeing employee has for the culture of the company.

    Flexible hours provide a better work life balance than other companies.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good

    Cons

    Don't believe the standard line about the fact that since it's a big company, you have options to move around. This is rarely true, as you're experience has to match pretty well to transfer.

    Many employees are nearly worthless, having learned for years they can get away with non-accountability and not pushing themselves such that they honestly believe when you give them honest feedback to improve that you are trying to be disrespectful.
    It amazes me that we can possibly stay in business with all the dead weight.
    Assignments are often vague and aligned with strategy, but not practical daily work.

    Advice to Management

    Start getting real about the number of people actually needed and start encouraging accountability between employees. Take the time to assure you are giving people real work to do.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, management allows for flexible work schedules and working from home 2 days a week (depending on your work statement).

    Great health insurance and benefits.

    Most of my colleagues have been pleasant, easy to work with people.

    Cons

    Technologies used is often out of date, and change is slow.

    Technical workers are underpaid for their skills vs comparable positions at other companies in the Seattle area.

    Frequent layoffs.

    Promotions and upward mobility is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your technical workers in IT more! Boeing is losing a lot of talent due to higher paying jobs in the area.

    Pros

    Good benefits and work life balance.

    Cons

    Too many layoffs, hard to move around, performance management process is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating the employes like they are expendable. Actually live out the "people is our greatest asset" drum that you beat. Invest more in IT.

    Over the past few years we have gone through multiple lay offs.

    Advice to Management

    Tools that are rolled out need better upfront testing.

    I worked at Boeing as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Planes are cool.
    Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs with poor transition and offloading of work when people leave a position. People who take over projects are already overworked and hardly informed of what is going on with work they take over.

    Too much focus on quarterly profits and shareholders, at the expense of employee benefits and long-term goals for the company.

    Not enough encouragement to grow or excel.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing so much non-engineering tech work. You may feel like you're getting a better deal because labor is cheaper, but talk to your local employees about the quality of work they are getting back from vendors and whether it's worth the turnaround time or the cleanup that has to be done on code when it comes back.
