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

    Pros

    It's exciting to get to work around airplane production lines that serve worldwide customers. Work/life balance is fair. Good benefits package with Christmas to New Year time period off.

    Cons

    I was initially thrilled to get to work at Boeing and hoped to have a long and varied career there. A couple of key areas have changed my mind:

    Accountability - too many ineffective managers are constantly moved around and reassigned to new areas despite lack of performance. This is troublesome when we were told staffing reductions would be made across the board, yet we've seen no managers affected. In non-management areas, some employees spend full days doing anything but work. It's fascinating that some can sit and watch television programs on their computers during their shift, surf the internet, etc. as if having no work to do or any concern that their manager or others know this. The same few people are called on to do the actual work, then others on the team stand up to take the credit in front of leadership. Don't bother raising any of these concerns with Human Resources - they will take statements and "investigate," but the behavior does not change.

    Opportunities - the company is undergoing multiple rounds of layoffs, which has created a toxic environment and culture where people are perpetually stressed. That said, you can be told you are doing next-level work and absorb higher-level statements of work from employees who have left Boeing, but will then be told you can't be given a level promotion for who knows how long because of the state of the company. I'm not sure how the company can preach people development and career growth with that reasoning and expect employees will stay.

    Advice to Management

    Address and communicate news with employees first; don't let the media be the ones to tell your employees about major changes within the company. Take note of the droves of people leaving the company to go work for places like Amazon.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent company to work. Each project engineer has specific area responsibilities, for example; Aircraft Interior has many project engineers, each responsible for different commodities. Very easy to run the project

    Cons

    Employees has too much free time, they pretend to stretch the work, if the work is 4hrs, they will take 2 days to do it and no one care about the status.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out employee what they are doing.

    Pros

    Challenging work environment, opportunities to try new areas of work, employees are motivated, amazing products

    Cons

    although there are opportunities to try new things- they are few and far between, frequent layoffs

    Advice to Management

    Need better communication about layoffs- make it clear to people who are safe that they are in fact safe, and the people who are at risk let them know their skill codes are being assessed so we don't end up losing, and panicking the wrong people.

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Pay is ok, but not great.
    Opportunity to move around since it is a large company
    Makes wonderful products

    Cons

    Constant cutback on benefits. Previously, the benefits made the whole package better, but with so much cutback in benefits and very low annual raise, you are lucky to be stay ahead of inflation.
    Very low annual salary increases (for non-union)
    Cyclical industry
    Parking situation
    Limited advancement opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Executive leadership keeps talking about wanting to address the issue with pay since more and more people are leaving. They need to stop talking about it and actually take some action.
