    Pros

    Feeling of association with Airplanes.
    Great staff and working team members.

    Cons

    Horrible leadership.
    Horrible benefits.
    Stock holders come first.
    Dishonest ledaership.
    No one can accomplish great things unless management gets the credit.
    Telling lies FAA and the world.

    Advice to Management

    Thin the ranks, When Jim McNerney left GE they went from 8 layers to 3, when he left Boeing we went from 8 layers to 10. Maybe have people do the work and support them, rather then just trading up your own careers.

  7. "Great environment, low pay."

    Pros

    Wonderful managers and coworkers. Overtime is offered frequently. Double time on Sundays. Triple time on holidays. Anyone looking for a foot into Boeing I recommend it.

    Cons

    Compared to the national average starting wages are very low. A few new joggers qualify for food stamps. Treat this as a entry level position.

    Advice to Management

    With attrition at a high, increased wages would help retain people. By far some of the best workers (a lot I consider family) and I would love to make it my home, but other offers inside of Boeing pulled me away. Had to go where the money is and make it so I’m not struggling to get by.
