    Advice to Management

    Actually know how to manage and lead people.

    I've worked at Boeing for 6yrs now, I've worked on some really great projects that have done nothing for my career growth.

    This place is beyond frustrating if you like to actually work and advance yourself, however, if you'd like to cruise and just sit behind a desk all day with little to no output, Boeing is a great place. Things move at a snails pace, improvement ideas are consistently shot down, projects are usually never coordinated between organizations and there is no coordinated efforts here. The projects that are championed by management are pointless and brings no value to the end items.

    Management is not in tune with employees, there is no employee career development and though having served in the military, an engineering degree, and an MBA, I have had no help in getting anywhere but frustrated trying to advance in this company.

    Boeing used to be a great company, I personally don't see it being a contender in the future of aviation with the lack of strategy and leadership.

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

    Pros

    The wealth of knowledge and the 1st class software is always cutting edge. Working at Boeing since transitioning from the Automotive world, was just a amazing journey thru technology and how one group thinks a certain way and the other is polar opposite and I had the pleasure of going thru that transition.

    Cons

    Working at Boeing since transitioning from the Automotive world, was just a amazing journey thru technology and how one group thinks a certain way and the other is polar opposite and I had the pleasure of going thru that transition and dealing with a different method of work i.e. Boeing everything is in English (inches, feet . . .etc). Being from the "Automotive World" we deal with metrics (millimeters, centimeters . . etc) That took sometime for adjusting to being a Design Engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage your people let them take the task and see where they go with it, if its not the right path well then you steer them in the direction you as a Manager would like to see. Also encourage "out of the box" thinking it really could help Lean out a way of doing business orcoming up with a better product.

    Pros

    Awesome projects for folks to work on as well as many many opportunities to move around and work multiple disciplines if the desire is there on the employees part. There is also great continuing education benefits as well.

    Cons

    The cafeteria food is pretty awful.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more flexible working arrangements.

    Pros

    Petty good benefits
    Pretty good pay

    Cons

    Bureaucracy
    Constant threat of layoffs
    Loss of company paid pension benefits

    Advice to Management

    Having "more" meetings, with managers who don't understand how to be efficient, in the first place, isn't going to result in increased efficiency - quite the contrary. Strong team leads have good ideas; use them to increase efficiency.

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

    Pros

    Passion for the products. Convenience to home (major mfg sites are at the N and S ends of Puget Sound, plus many offices in Seattle and surrounding area).

    Cons

    Outsourcing, hollowing out of the middle of the workforce, loss of tribal knowledge from senior departees.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep and develop your talent, even if the stock price goes down. When the 777X starts production, and the next new airplane is launched, you're going to be scrambling to find the people to make it happen. . . because you laid them all off 18-24 months prior. Would it be worse to keep them on the payroll, or to have to double or triple their salaries to get back on schedule and suffer the hit to the brand image?

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities to learn and grow. If you're bored, you're probably to blame, especially if you work out of a larger site. Boeing is a world-class company with talented leaders and very smart, hard-working engineers.

    Cons

    Given the size of the company, there are a lot of places for poor-performing employees to hide....for years....which is unfair to those who are bringing their game face day after day.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to cut the fat so we can remain competitive in this extremely dynamic market. The additional 3 weeks family pay is a step in the right direction, but pales in comparison to other companies, especially in the technology sector which provide 12+ along with UTO. Last thing we want is to lose the best and brightest to our competitors.
