Pros

Boeing promotes a good work life balance. The people for the most part are great to work with and the benefits package is pretty good, but overall the benefits for the aerospace industry is pretty good. Boeing also encourages to people to move around within the company even if it's into a different functional area. This is appealing to me, because I do find all facets of the business interesting.

Cons

Boeing is a big company. With that comes lots and lots and lots of procedures and policies to know and follow. This means things do move very slowly. It is also hard to be promoted without having a higher manager really being your champion. It's very easy to get lost in the shuffle.

Advice to Management

With changes, management needs to identify some of the subject matter expects or the stakeholders most likely affected and get their input. I feel most of the changes occur top down and leave the stakeholders to figure out how to execute which encounter lots of problems that could have been prevented with slightly better planning.

    Pros

    Boeing provides some pretty good benefits such as education, medical, dental, vacation, and sick leave. They also provide a great place for lazy and incompetent workers to make a great living.

    Cons

    All too often the perks given to the represented employees (IAM and SPEEA) and the employees of commercial airplanes far outway those of the salaried defense workers. We work with government money so we are treated as second class citizens or outcasts. We get less for travel allowances, service awards, etc than the others. For example, our water coolers were removed to save money but across the hall in 787 land (commercial airplane) they have several water coolers for their staff. How is that "One Boeing" as management likes to say.

    Advice to Management

    Give the same level of perks and benefits to all employess regardless. If the IAM gets something then the salaried should get it too.


  2. "A good company to learn with."
