No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Highly flexible work/life balance. Decent pay.

Cons

Great engineering company - phenomenal products and a fantastic place to be an aerospace engineer; however, this also means that a majority of the management structure is driven by engineering. Thus, the business environment is sometimes rigid and highly process/procedure driven.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. If you're an engineer you're part of the (SPEEA) union and will ALWAYS get a raise every year. We don't get Columbus day, Presidents day or other certain other holiday's off, but we do get 1.5 weeks mandatory off with pay. You choose your path...You can get away with minimal work.

    Cons

    You get sucked into the slow motion, and it's very easy to fall into a comfort zone where you neither progress nor digress. You can see 8 years fly by and you're doing the same thing, which is not mentally stimulating anymore and when you consider moving to a different job you realize your degree has 8years of dust on it and no longer feel you have the skill acquired through your degree to really apply to a job that requires it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Offer alternative projects/assignments/jobs when asked for. Don't force your employees to do things you have been told for years they don't like doing.
