Pros

Excellent pay and benefits; mandated training for all employees, global locations, pride in products and services, responsive management and leadership, Boeing bucks can be given from any employee who is happy with your work. Excellent travel system, outstanding centralized customer support, ethics, Lean+, and diversification are preached and practiced.

Cons

Mediocre or non-capable managers are everywhere when layoffs are not present. The smallest perceived threat will get you an HR visit. Under performing employees can and do frequently utilize HR to shield them from improving. A very conservative and Republican environment in many locations.

Advice to Management

Try another news channel. Fox does not increase employee moral. Find a way to better evaluate and eliminate non-performing managers. Research the negative effect of HR involvement in employee performance.

    Pros

    Becoming more in tune with work-life balance - not just lip service anymore. Opportunities are there but career management is your own responsibility. Even though it is a huge company, the Boeing world is small. Don't burn any bridges as you don't know who you may end up working for.

    Cons

    Still an engineering-centric company. Business side needs to catch up with innovation and technology. Don't lose sight of valuable lessons learned from previous experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who do the work everyday, interact with customers, suppliers, and the outside world at Boeing.


  2. "Lots of training opportunities but lacking in mentoring department. Raises too small and promotions difficult to acquire"

    Downsizing currently

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to put an increased importance on BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT. In my experience, BD was pretty unsuccessful and lacked in the proactivity department. More effective BD means more opportunity to bid on work and ultimately more work for Boeing employees.
