    I have been working at Boeing as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits
    Interesting work
    Feeling like you're contributing to something meaningful
    Great work-life balance, since all time must be logged, and so it's clear how much everyone is actually working.
    Executives seem like they have a good vision for the company, and are invested in helping the company stay on top.

    Cons

    Annoying bureaucratic policies
    Because it's defense contract work, usually can't contribute to open source code, or work on your personal computer
    Lots of work involves supporting legacy systems

    Advice to Management

    Lower management holds the key to making employees happy. The best managers are the one who trust their employees and fight for their team to help remove obstacles.

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

    Pros

    Benefits package
    401k match hard to beat
    Great co workers
    Good if you like starting out 10 dollars below what tier 1 workers did

    Cons

    Management is clueless because nobody communicates with each other.
    Good ol boys club
    Pay is horrible for flight mechanics just starting out
    Union is a joke here in St. Louis.
    Divided shop floor between tier 1 and tier 2 workers.
    Retention rate is unbelievably low for flight mechanics

    Advice to Management

    Bring the pay up for the tier two workers because you are losing talented mechanics by the boat load. communicate between your fellow supervisors and have a clear game plan instead of making everything confusing and disorganized.

    Pros

    Great company, great benefits. Focused on development and continuous improvement. Encourages higher education. Love that they are focused on the mission! We do amazing things here!!

    Cons

    Hierarchy is king. Very bureaucratic and sometimes it takes too long to get things done. Passive aggressive can be annoying. People don't tell you to your face how they feel. Does not address performance issue as appropriate which is unfortunate because and awesome team could be amazing if they addressed low performers.

    Advice to Management

    Promote for leadership ability and not technical competence.
