Pros

Good benefits
Good compensation
Friendly atmosphere
Full tuition prepayment

Cons

Can't use vacation in advance of accrual as some other companies allow.
Insurance administration outsourced and extremely unhelpful.
Unlike other companies, celebratory lunches are non-existent.

Stop outsourcing HR so the people working with your employees actually give a darn about keeping them around.

    Pros

    You will be a part of BIG THINGS. Some very interesting work happens at Boeing and if you pay attention to the company new you'll see lots of interesting stuff happening within the company.

    Cons

    You will have no idea how you fit into the big picture.

    There is a definite us/them mentality from employees to management, management doesn't seem to be part of the team.

    While the overall benefits package is great, base pay seems to be below that of other companies working in technology.

    Unions have created an environment where there are many employees approaching retirement in the next 10 years, and very few after that. The age distribution of employees is a saddle curve.

    Advice to Management

    If there is a vision for the future, and your organization is part of it, share your vision with the people working for you. It is very easy to feel lost in such a large company and you quickly lose sight of the reason you are working here.


  2. "Great company to work for, many opportunities with many different projects."

    Pros

    Great opportunities within the company for advancement. Employees are very proud of the work that they do and the products they create. Great place to start an engineering career. Great entry-level pay rates with decent benefits package. Plus you get to work on some of the most innovative, cutting edge projects on the planet.

    Cons

    It's sometimes easy to get lost within the company, since it is so large. Pay starts out very good, but raises are not competitive compared to the rest of the industry. Therefore the lack of raises do not keep experienced employees around for very long. Some of the processes are archaic.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees for doing great work in order to reduce the amount of turnover.
