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

    Pros

    Large company (Stable) with benefits and overall process to build airplanes, organization can handle tough problems and solve almost any negative actions take to the company

    Cons

    Large Company (Slow moving) it can step on themselves in making improvements, a lot of layers of management and team to get new processes through, not quite there in finding the new identity in the new business environment

    Advice to Management

    you are heading in the right direction, bringing in new outside younger people to go forward for the next 100 years, adding in new processes and challenging people to change to the new business environment

    Pros

    Depending on group and manager the work and work environment can be really rewarding. Team work with the right group assists in networking leading to additional opportunity.

    Cons

    Executive management is disconnected from engineering processes and will dictate how and when things will be accomplished without having technical background. Executive management has no input to board regarding headcount needs and where work will be done allowing for less skilled or newly established groups to dictate engineering. This enables missing time and cost targets.

    Advice to Management

    Be blatantly truthful on motivations of board decisions. Too much business wording fluff covering real objectives.

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

    Pros

    - Nice benefits, decent pay, great tuition reimbursement program, lots of smart employees
    - Work-life balance completely achievable and I appreciate the job stability
    - General feeling that the company cares about you and your family and will accommodate unforeseen circumstances if they arise

    Cons

    - Very bureaucratic, decision making is slow, not enforceable, and easily reversible
    - People are frequently underutilized or placed in positions that are not aligned with their skills
    - Culture in many groups condones a sense of no urgency

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be allowed enough time to focus on managing, supporting, and developing their employees. There is a general feeling that a managers' entire time is suffocated in non-value added meetings.

    Talented procurement agents who works hard and thrive to do their best.
