Pros

Boeing pays for continued education 100% Opportunity to move around the company and find a job you like.

Cons

Boeing is downsizing it's benefits packages. Outsourcing. Cyclical jobs. Living in rainy Seattle (there are other job locations). Less than competitive wages, depending on the program. Hierarchical atmosphere. Communication difficulties between groups.

Advice to Management

Invest in new technology and ideas. Listen to your new, young people coming out of college who want to work cutting edge jobs and are communication savvy. Put back better medical options, quit outsourcing so much and find innovative ways (besides hiring more contractors) to stabilize the company's cyclical swings.

    Pros

    Boeing pays well and has amazing starting salary amounts for engineers.

    Boeing has great working hours and even allows for flex time which permits the employee to work additonal time on one day and less on another.

    Boeing benefits are the best in the industry:
    8% match on 401k. Unlimited education reimbursment. Full health, dental, vision, and life insurance ECEN FOR INTERNS.

    The intern program also pays for the rest of your college education and will guarantee you a job upon graduation if you perform well during your internship. I am 3 months since working and I still am covered for medical, dental, vision.

    Employees are given almost a month of vacation every year.

    For interns, relocation and housing funds are provided. I drove cross country both ways had an amazing time and had enough funds left over to almost pay for a car. They will also pay for your flight if you want that.

    Cons

    It is a very big company and it can become intimidating to work as part of such a large group of employees. Also, you will be forced to join a union if you are an engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing thins the Boeing way because it seems to be working.
