    Pros

    You will work with really smart people on some of the coolest products in the sky and the educational benefits are really good.

    Long Beach, CA Boeing Branch has stopped its operation on 2016 due to the completion of the C-17 US Military Program.

    Advice to Management

    Management style at Boeing Long Beach branch were fair enough in supporting the program and very aggressive in dealing with changes based on customer(s) demands. My advice was to be proactive and not to be under duress when these changes occurs within time period.

    Pros

    Boeing has decent benefits and the likehood of getting a raise every year. Many departments are willing to help your career growth.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was exciting to be an Aerospace Engineer knowing that my efforts, audits and sales to the Government allowed numerous space vehicles to be launched and come back to our Mother Earth.

    Cons

    Boeing bought out a great company that my Father and I both worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the little people. They actually have a huge vested interest in the working of such a large company. The actual Pulse of the company is felt every day by those on the floor, manufacturing, engineering and the various levels of Frontline Management to the Middle Managers
