    Pros

    Excellent company that makes great products and focuses on quality.

    Cons

    Affordability targets have tightened things up a lot. Morale in some groups could be negatively impacted by budget pressures and competition.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't cost to take a quick second to recognize employees for the works well done.

    The company is so big, you can get lost in the shuffle.

    Advice to Management

    Pick good people, empower them and then let them do their jobs. You will be surprised what they can do!

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

    Pros

    I have held many challenging and rewarding jobs over my 30 years of employment with Boeing. Boeing paid for my Bachelor's Degree and my Master's Degree. I have a pension, 401K that Boeing contributes 75% of the first 8% of my income that is invested, very descent healthcare, 22 days of vacation, 10 days sick leave and flex time. Boeing has an excellent CEO and President of Boeing, Dennis Muilenburg.

    Cons

    On January 1, 2016, Boeing stopped providing pensions. Depending on your age, they instead (in my case) deposited 9% of my base salary into my 401K for 2016, 8% in 2017, 7% in 2018, then a flat 5% for the remaining years I work at Boeing.

    I work in the Defense side of Boeing. Funding is tight and it is difficult to implement new technology. I brought in a new electrical wiring design tool that is now the Boeing standard tool, but it took 2 years of pushing with a bulldozer before gaining the support from senior executives and another 3 years to implement. Five years is too long!

    Advice to Management

    Don't box in your employees. They are your greatest asset. We are smart and dedicated. Give us the avenues and means to implement changes expeditiously.

    Pros

    Boeing values Diversity. Boeing has thousand employees from different cultures and background. There are many affinity groups at Boeing, one of them is Boeing Asian America Professional Association (BAAPA). I was grateful working at Boeing for 17 years. Diversity is competitive advantages.

    Cons

    There's a time that Boeing has to layoff a lot of people, it's due to aviation industry low cycle.

    Pros

    Great benefits and the people there are great. Leadership is smart, but takes away something every year from its employees.

    Pay and all the take always from the working man. Other than that, the company is great to work for

    Pros

    Lots of really smart people...endless amount of opportunities to solve problems and fix things. Lots of opportunity to change jobs, functions, organizations throughout your career. Good Diversity and Inclusion initiatives and support directly from CEO.

    Cons

    Too many of the same type of people promoted into management (many with no real leadership or people skills). Lots of management groupthink due to lack of diversity and too many managers unwilling to take calculate risks especially regarding use of technology to do daily work. Still too much bureaucracy to make simple decisions that should be made by the people performing the work. Too much management by committee or decisions made not on facts or data but by highest paid person's opinion. Skills teams are killing morale and forced distributions are too heavily skewed towards years of experience instead of pure raw talent.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Pay more attention to the job market cause your talent will leave when another employer is willing to pay them their true worth. They will leave when they are not given more responsibility, promoted, provided with the latest and greatest tools/software to do their remedial daily tasks, or granted authority to make decisions. Managements sole job should be focused on growing their people, removing roadblocks, and encouraging their talent to give their all. Too often management IS the roadblock.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, lots of opportunity for personal and professional growth

    Cons

    Very competitive business resulting in lots of emphasis on cost savings and with every executive change there are process and policy changes that make it difficult to actually get work done. Tons of politics

    Advice to Management

    Get back to REALLY valuing your people. Truly empower them to find and make the changes that the market demands.
