Good pay, good benefits, get paid well for doing not hard work
Poor managing, rude coworkers due to low moral, slowly taking away our benefits, get messed with being switched to different shifts and cities. Hard to have any work life balance when you're not on a consistent schedule/city of work. CEO is a real piece of work. Taking jobs from here and adding to places w/o unions even though we signed a contract saying they wouldn't.

Secure projects mean work must stay at work which means a very good work life balance. You have a job that contributes to keeping the nation safe You're in a challenging environment that isn't boring
Turn over rate is 2 years. Older employees and mangers reap most of the rewards while new people are over worked. It's very sink or swim driven work Everything is behind schedule so there is a lot of pressure to work overtime and cut corners.

Strong support system for all employees. Competitive pay and the Benefits are second to none. Would return to Boeing without a second thought.
Work life balance can be a challenge in some jobs but not all jobs fall into this category. Big company that takes awhile for changes to happen.

While working at Boeing you have the opportunity to work on some products that truly change the way people live around the world. That's an exciting thing to be a part of. Boeing also promotes a good work life balance.
As a young high performing employee, moving around the company is difficult. Boeing does not do a great job at providing early career employees opportunities to move into other areas. This ends up pushing early career employees to leave the company, often after working just a few years. Many of these employees come back later in their career for the stability and work life balance.3

Boeing does an excellent job with ensuring their employees have a good work life balance.
Path to promotion is not always clear and is very dependent on individual first line managers.

Benefits were good. Manager had good knowledge. Team mates were good. Perks were fine. Good learning opportunity if are placed on a good project. Know more about Aerospace domain.
Very slow process. Work life balance might be little impacted as meetings were also scheduled off office hours. Most annoying is they would hire you for something and ask to work on something else and if you are not able to perform then you are low rated. As i was interviewed for front end position and was asked to work on JAVA which I had no interest at all. Once you leave the org and if you need support from them for any issue they would take lot of time to respond.1

Career opportunities are rich here with plenty of room for advancement. Management is fair and compensation is very fair indeed.
Extremely long hours which sometimes take away from that positive work/life balance that many employers are looking to strengthen these days

Great benefits and work environment. Also have a good strong Work / Life balance which I think is better than most companies these days.
None that I can think of

Great work/life balance with generous PTO and annoy to flex hours within a pay period. Insurance was cut back slightly, but is still top notch. 401(k) is one of the best programs in the nation.
Large and often bureaucratic; many "coasters" just there to collect a paycheck and nothing more, making change difficult and slow; driven by metrics, creating a lot of non-value-added work.

Great benefits package. Fair place to work with supportive work environment.
Work life balance is talked about a lot... but not taken as seriously as it could. 500+ hours of OT a year wears on ya.

Bowl for Tech industry professionals.
Got laid off from my job as a software developer a couple days ago and am looking for new opportunities in the Calgary area/remote. Have 2.5 year of experience and worked with various technologies over that time including React, ReactNative, Typescript, Rails, NodeJS, as well as experience with mobile app development. Would appreciate any advice, positions or opportunities you can recommend/offer.
Recruiters that work for industry leaders - is there any benefit for us to connect with you on LinkedIn? A few has replied to me but say that they're not able to do anything to connect and understand candidate profile, just apply. So I want to know why some send invitations to connect and never say anything? Do you go through your connections for potential recruits? Because you do get A LOT of applications already.
Hey everyone! I’m hosting a small dinner in San Francisco to bring some creatives in tech (designers, writers, etc) together IRL. I’m keeping it to 6 people so that we have the opportunity to connect, and if there’s enough interest, I’ll organize more! If you’re interested in dining with strangers who may become friends, please fill out this form. https://forms.gle/DCdTmuB6UxVUHD4Z8
So I've just received a job offer for exactly what I want to be doing, team sounds great, looks like it'll be a real exciting challenge. The downside- the journey is quite strenuous. A total of 3.5 hours approx just to get there and then the same back. It is only once a week in the office, and they're expensing every single part of the trip which I thought was quite nice. They are flexible somewhat on when I can leave the office. I actually have no issue with waking up early but Is it worth it?
Hi friends, would appreciate any advice/suggestions on my situation here! So I graduated 2020 as a b.s. in mgmt but didn't go straight into working. I flew from NYC and stayed in Asia to this day, around 3 years now. Although I've been working with an AI startup here but I'm feeling left out of the main tech scene b/c I am primarily working on translating tasks & there is no sales/customers at this stage. I am having great trouble finding a job & coming back. Pls help me on this. Thnks!
