    I have been working at Boeing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Basic Benefits are hard to beat. The token cost of living adjustments have not kept pace with inflation for the past 10 years.

    Cons

    Management stifles creativity and ambition. Lower level managers are not allowed to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the layers and let your mangers actually manage.

    Lots of opportunities for developing technical expertise and career progression.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The schooling, training and medical benefits are the best perk. Occasionally there are other incentives (movie tickets, points, etc). There is potential for advancement.

    Cons

    Advancement is entirely dependent upon manager and location. Even if you have all your lights on, a manager can hold you to your job code.

    Advice to Management

    More open and honest communication.

    Pros

    Excellent company, cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    Depending on where in the organization you work the culture can be very progressive and open and in others the culture is 20 or more years behind where other technology companies are. Ironically those locations where the culture could improve, the biggest push back is from the employees. Change can be difficult for some.

    Advice to Management

    Way too many managers, they are nothing but buffers between the leadership and the workers. As an executive manager, if you trust your workers, (if you hired them you probably should) then listen to what they have to say without all the filters. They want to do a good job and take pride in what they do. For the middle managers, you have a tough job if you have to act as one of those buffers telling the executives what they want to hear instead of what they need to hear.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic work flow and a challenging, inclusive company.

    Cons

    The shift in Boeing corporate culture has picked up. I am not sure that middle management and life-long employees know what that means.

    Advice to Management

    Are you making decisions for the best of the company and your employees?
