    Pros

    Good company to work for. Good benefits and very competitive salary. Company basically shuts down for the last two weeks of the year to make up for not having all the federal holidays off.

    Cons

    Big company = impersonal. Like all defense contractor companies, money is the end game and don't get in the way. If they can get someone to do your job for cheaper, you better start looking for work.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your people better and what they do. This will allow you to be better informed when it comes time for job reviews and salary raise discussions.

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

    Pros

    Boeing provides great job opportunities, great benefits, great values, and great folks! For a huge company, with major business attractions, Boeing strives to treat all individuals with fairness and respect!

    Cons

    As with most companies in today's business environment, Boeing has had to curtail many of the employment benefits, such as the pension program, for new employees. Competition brings its own constraints.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Boeing Management is to work hard to keep up the great successes in staying competitive, while continuing to maintain great values and respect for all individuals!

    Pros

    Good benefits, though they are decreasing some. The company is very supportive during a reduction in force, and help their employers look for new opportunities. Senior management is putting a significant effort into developing young talent and leaders.

    Cons

    Job Security in Depart of Defense contracts is always a struggle. The company is so big it can be hard to see the direction of it.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Culture, professional respect, expected and compensated continuing eduacation, well compensated for job position with pay and benefit, the ability, encouragement and expectation to grow with the company, never ending opportunites to move up or laterally. Hiring internally first for open positions is always a plus.

    Cons

    Job stability, longevity - Due to the nature of contract longevity, a position is only as long as your participation is needed on the contract. Keep your resume sharp!

    Pros

    Definitely the benefits are top notch. Pay was pretty good considering the job. Fellow co-workers and management were generally caring and supportive. For those who enjoy a teaming environment, it's one of the better places to work. Excellent educational benefits (paid in full in critical business areas).

    Cons

    Slow promotions and career advancements were either not clearly defined, not managed properly or not in place at all. Sometimes work can be slow and have to fight motivation to stay busy

    Advice to Management

    Recognition of employees achievements and abilities would provide a lot of motivation and encouragement. Too much red tape in many areas that slow work to a crawl sometimes. Overall better support of employees' desires to "climb the corporate ladder" needs to be made clear and understood. The company promotes "One Boeing" concept when in fact each location has completely different policies or policies are enforced differently.

    Pros

    * Experience in working cutting edge technology
    * Great Education benefits
    * Great medical insurance and 401K matching
    * Respect among peers. Good working environment

    Cons

    * Hard to be promoted.
    * Often good ol' boy politics rule
    * Substantial salary increases (above standard 3%) hard to come by
    * Communication between management and employee not ideal

    Advice to Management

    Grow the international market by having American born Boeing employees able to take permanent jobs overseas. Too much overhead in traveling back and forth from CONUS to OCONUS. Take time to recognize programs that have over achieved. Visit IDS facilities and listen to the employee base with their concerns
