    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Work with schedule. Time off at Christmas. Health benefits.

    Cons

    Overtime is considered professional contribution. Rotation program is great experience, but every 18 months one has to impress a new manager. Slow to advance unless you know the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Retain quality employees.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Benefits are great, my direct manager is outstanding and willing to listen to solve issues within the office space. Willing to listen to ideas and thoughts and collaborate to solve issues.

    Cons

    Some employees/managers are close-minded and stuck in their ways, and not willing to learn new technologies to keep current. This is not beneficial for employees that will need to work for the next 30-40 years as growth is required to continue in this field.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in mid-career employees and college graduates to bring in fresh ideas and methods. Not only is this cheaper, but retention rate of future employees will thrive.

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

    Pros

    You get to work on great products, there is job security if you are competent. The benefits are still good even not nearly as good as when I started 20 years ago. Huge emphasis on safety and quality. Mostly great people to work with and descent managers. There are a lot of rotation programs designed to train and promote younger workers.

    Cons

    Older workers are passed over in order to ensure opportunities for younger employees. The company is very buerocracic. The performance measurements are vague (a lot of meaningless stoplight charts) and market share is droping as the competition seems to be more nimble. Some middle management is clueless on running a business and just focus on staying green on as many metrics is possible even if it means cost overruns and getting priced out of the competition.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize... the "One Boeing" approach is not working very well. I have seen descisions kicked up to the BCA President that could have been made 4 levels down in the organization. You need smaller businesses that own all functions and can customize processes and support levels to the products they are building. BDS does this pretty well but in some cases they are being strangled by the shared service model. Cost accountability doesn't go low enough so there is little incentive to find the right value. If you walk through any facility Boeing acquired from an acquisition and comprehensive it to a Boeing built facility it is obvious that Boeing over spends on its plants.
