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

    Pros

    The wealth of knowledge and the 1st class software is always cutting edge. Working at Boeing since transitioning from the Automotive world, was just a amazing journey thru technology and how one group thinks a certain way and the other is polar opposite and I had the pleasure of going thru that transition.

    Cons

    Working at Boeing since transitioning from the Automotive world, was just a amazing journey thru technology and how one group thinks a certain way and the other is polar opposite and I had the pleasure of going thru that transition and dealing with a different method of work i.e. Boeing everything is in English (inches, feet . . .etc). Being from the "Automotive World" we deal with metrics (millimeters, centimeters . . etc) That took sometime for adjusting to being a Design Engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage your people let them take the task and see where they go with it, if its not the right path well then you steer them in the direction you as a Manager would like to see. Also encourage "out of the box" thinking it really could help Lean out a way of doing business orcoming up with a better product.

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

    Pros

    Challenging and rewarding on a daily basis. Possibilities are an option granted you are willing to relocate. An obvious aerospace leader.

    Cons

    Smaller sites can prove to have low career growth potential due to budgeting and program funds. Growth from within is not an always followed motto.

    Advice to Management

    Grow from within. Mentor both young and old. Provide realistic goals and give the tools to achieve them. Reward more than scold.

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

    Pros

    If you can manage to integrate to the right groups, you should do okay. Competitive salaries. The name has a good reputation.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs. Most groups not truly team oriented. Benefits keep decreasing as time goes on. Average quality management, and not inclusive of all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved in doing your job, and be more risky in your ventures, branch out.

    Pros

    Health benefits and vacation. Education benefits.

    Cons

    Slow to promote. Don't expect change, make your own career steps to advance yourself. Forget overtime...work for free.

    Advice to Management

    Cherish your hardworking employees who want to see positive changes.

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

    Pros

    1. Tuition coverage plan (called LTP) is amazing. If you want a MS or PhD in a technical field, Boeing will pay for all of your classes and materials (not a reimbursement program like most companies). However, you owe Boeing 2 years after your graduation date- otherwise you have to pay everything back.
    2. Traditional medical plan is inexpensive, with a lower deductible
    3. Better than average PTO plan
    4. Company recognition means it is a good name to get on your resume

    Cons

    1. Great place to start your career as a recent college grad, and great place if you are happy with an OK salary and plan to coast. Company does not recognize or promote employees based on work load or work ethic; employees are asked to do P4/P5 work but get paid as a P1/P2/P3 if you are lucky. Salaries are much less than what you see in the private sector. Cost cutting efforts are focusing on taking away employee benefits (promotion opportunity, lower salaries, no more pension, medical plan slowly getting worse, etc.) instead of addressing the real issues (paperwork and supplier management costs)- the employees suffer. Many younger high potential employees are leaving due to lack of career growth or promotions.
    2. Huntsville technical fellowship is a good ol' boy club; no support for minorities and no interest in diversity
    3. Low salaries compared to other companies of the same type (LHM, NGC, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    Management is graded on cost/schedule which means they are punished for promoting employees. Company now has a revolving door of inexperienced engineers who leave after 2 years; then the cycle repeats. Push for schedule means employees are forced to put out low quality work just to meet a need date, and status reports are encouraged to lie (have more green!) so as not to attract negative attention.

    Company (at least at my location) needs a culture change.

    Pros

    Interesting projects, excellent tools , good training, fantastic people and great benefits.

    Cons

    The company does not compensate very well low and mid-level engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate ($$$) young and mid level employees. Otherwise people leave the company looking for better opportunities.
